As the title says, the show was great, probably the best show on the island, but average buffet, as all buffets are - i'd rather order a la carte at a place like that and have some food i'd really appreciate!

This was a great night out. The food was absolutely amazing and the show was extremely worth while. Their music is addictive. A must when you go to Rarotonga. The meal is all part of the package so you just pay for your drinks at the end of the evening.
