Freshest fish on the island and the best prices. The Sashimi and Ika Mata Combo was my favourite but the wraps are out of this world. Best prices on the island from $10 to $15 for a good feed. Cant wait to come back.

Went here twice for lunch and had the fish wrap, it was delicious, so fresh and tasty plus the prices are very reasonable. It's not super fancy but just perfect for lunch. They also catch their own fish so it's super fresh.

We went to the Saturday market and stumbled on this place at the end of our wandering. We shared calamari and Ika Mata and both were sensationally good, we'd highly recommend this little place.

My favourite when in Avarua ! Inexpensive small cottage fish and chips, where you can taste a lot of Sushi, roasted Mahi Mahi, Tuna etc. just caught from their boat! Prices are ok! Large portions and friendly staff! Salads and chips are nice. Get there...More

We had the chicken wrap for a change after sampling some of the other dishes, good. An ideal resting spot after going to the Saturday morning market. This Cafe is definately on our do it list.
