Top 10 Fusion food in Rarotonga, Southern Cook Islands, Cook Islands

December 12, 2019 Leonarda Pillsbury

Find out what Fusion restaurants to try in Rarotonga. Sipping coconut milk while bargaining for handmade jewelry and swaying your hips to live music—just another Saturday morning in Rarotonga. After a few hours of checking out the wharf-side Punanga Nui Market, hit the beaches of this reef-protected volcanic island. There are plenty of picturesque lagoons that allow peaceful swimming or snorkeling, and moonlit strolls along the East Side sands are pure magic. Raro Safari Tours are a popular way to explore the island’s vivid rainforest.

This restaurant is actually on the beach so flat shoes or barefoot recommended. Friendly hardworking staff with some theme nights as well as a la carte.

Good food; a little pricey for Raro. Has very good ambience and the singers were lovely at dinner. Service is shaky, but they are trying. The continental breakfast was a carb-fest and the ordered breakfasts were nice, but too pricey. The seafood platter is huge (too much for two people) but delicious.Kia Orana,Thank you for taking the time to post your review of your dining experience with us. I am delighted to hear you enjoyed the ambience and entertainment as well the complimentary tropical breakfast buffet and the hot a la carte options. Our seafood platter is definitely a guest favourite and I am happy that you had the opportunity to sample this local dish. Our famous and ever popular Seafood Platter for Two includes “Ika Mata” Diced local Game Fish marinated in Lemon Juice and Coconut Cream, “Mitiore” Grated Coconut & Poached Prawns, Seared local Game Fish, Pesto Crumbed Pan Seared Scallops, Creamy New Zealand Mussel Chowder, Line caught Yellow Fin Tuna Sashimi with Honey Miso Marinade, Coconut Panko Crumbed Deep Sea Fish Goujons, Charred Garlic Tiger Prawns, Tempura Pacific Oysters, Seafood Arancini, Spicy Sambal with a Fresh Garden Salad, Island Slaw, Warm Breads & Dips all for just $NZ 99.Our complimentary continental tropical buffet includes seasonal fresh island fruits, fresh fruit salad, home-stewed fruits, Bircher muesli, homemade yoghurt, fresh-baked breads, pastries, muffins & croissants, cereals, toast, spreads, fruit juices, tea & coffee. Other hot breakfast options are available from our a la carte menu for a small additional charge. Our meals and drink prices are in line with what you pay at other similar outlets around the island, which are more like Australia and New Zealand than Bali or Thailand, and cheaper than Fiji. Please note that as we are a small tropical island in the middle of the South Pacific, apart from locally grown fruit and vegetables as well as Game Fish, we need to import many items.Kind Regards, Greg Long Food & Beverage Manager

We stayed at the resort so ate here several times over the week. Everything we got was pretty good. Would recommend the BLAT burger and the prawn pizza. Disappointed by the garlic prawn special on Tuesday night. Kia Orana,Thank you for your review.

Popular with tourists as they serve the usual euro style cooked breakfasts along with local touches as well. We had 2 x coconut pancakes with banana, bacon and maple syrup - really lovely. Though thick pancakes, not the usual thin sort, lovely and crunchy on the outside, which was rather delicious. Also the spicy mince on toast w bacon n egg on top was well worthy for my man, very tasty and filling he said.Well worth a stop, once or twice!
