“Excellent meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 May 2014

After lots of fish, I was excited for our meal at Windjammer. We didn't even realize it was Italian until we walked in, as we went there for access to the amazing sunsets. We headed to the beach through the hotel, and enjoyed a beautiful sunset and some happy hour wine before heading in for dinner.

Everything we had was quite good. It's a small intimate place. We even had the piano stylings of an older gentleman who even knew "Royals" by Lorde. (I'm pretty sure he was also at Vaima a few days before.)

A great send off to our time in Rarotonga and I highly recommend a visit.

“Great authentic Italian food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 April 2014

Definitely the best food we had on the island! Alfredo is a real italian chef and you can taste that. The only place where you cana get your Pasta al dente and not overcooked!

“Its Ok”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 April 2014

We heard this was the number 1 restaurant on the island so couldn't wait to try it out. We were very deflated with our experience. We were seated and waited for about 10 mins before we were asked if we would like drink of any kind. Then once we ordered drinks it took another 10 mins or so to actually get them. The entrée was very very average for the price. The mains were nothing special either. I wouldn't go back.
