A must go to place while in Rarotonga. The food is great, service better and serving sizes huge. Well worth the visit.

Adam’s pizza and the guy that does the garlic prawns, the best food I have ever had! Depending on the weather and day of the week not all stalls will be there though.

I can't say anything negative about this event. If you're on the island--go and enjoy the evening and feed on its' delicacies!

We went to the night market twice during our stay in Rarotonga. The pizzas are great and we noticed those people are there even on non-night market nights (normally Tues-Thurs and Sunday’s, always from 5pm). The other thing we had which was really good was...More
