“Wind Jammer Restaurant”
Reviewed 28 June 2014

We became aware of The Wind Jammer Restaurant's excellent reputation after reading an article in the local free Escape Magazine. This restaurant is part of the Crown Resort, a boutique style resort known for it's excellence and promoted as an adult only escape for couples. The Wind Jammer is located on the main road at the top of the access road to The Crown Resort. Reservations are required at this fine dining experience to avoid disappointment. The Restaurant is small and intimate and provides live music by way of an accomplished piano player who will play all requests. The wait staff are very professional and attentive and the chef enjoys international acclaim. The food is exceptional with a extensive selection of wines to match. This restaurant is best left to last, as a special treat or for a special celebration, perhaps for your last night in the Cooks. The prices reflect the exemplary service of this fine dining experience. We all deserve a little luxury in our lives and The Wind Jammer Restaurant delivers this and more. Kia Orana.

“Great food- Top service.”
Reviewed 19 June 2014 via mobile

We ate at Windjammers after all the good feedback from tripadvisor. We went with friends who stayed at the Edgewater and we stayed at the Crown. On arrive the first thing that impressed us was the waitress putting our napkins on our laps. The second was the size of the tables, they are huge! We had the breads for starters which we very tasty. Then I had the Rack of Lamb and my wife had the Mushroom fettuccine. The lamb was perfect and my wives fettuccine was a huge serving. For desserts-I had the Terramasu yummo and my wife had the chocolate fondont which was art on a plate. The only down side was the atmosphere, they had Garth Young playing piano, but I would have had Dean Martin or Frank Sinatra as background music. All in all had a great time pricing was fine and would visit again.

“Fantastic Italian Food, Great Service”
Reviewed 14 June 2014

I would highly recommend this restaurant. We ended up going here three times during our stay in Rarotonga, it was so good!

The food was fantastic (especially the pastas and desserts), and the service was excellent - the waitresses were attentive and very friendly.

“Yum! ”
Reviewed 8 June 2014 via mobile

We came to this restaurant after staying in the resort. The meals were very good and the dessert was a star from all the desserts we had on the island!
After the meal the chef came out to check on the diners meals which was a very nice touch.

“A nice meal”
Reviewed 7 June 2014

Food here is really good Italian and the service is really good too. Would definitely go back; they even did a Ceasar Salad for one of our group outside of opening hours a few days later.
