“Nice place for Friday drinks with music”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

Palm Grove is viewed favourably by my friends. I went for Friday night drinks. Nice setting, very good music, reasonable prices-including a cocktail special (bartender's choice)-and some nibbles. Have met a number of people who are staying/have stayed there and they speak well of the accommodation, food, and bar.

“Great food for reasonable prices!”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

We ate a lot at the yellow Hibiscus as we stayed at Palm Grove Resort which is connected to this restaurant. The food is really good, good portions and reasonable priced!
They have a BBQ on Sundays for $35 pp choice of steak or fish and a large table full of salads pasta bakes, beautiful!
Dessert included in the price. Often ice cream and fruit.
Value for money!

“Good Value”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

We stayed at Palm Grove so as well as breakfast we had one lunch and two dinners here and the food was well priced and consistently good. Drinks were also very reasonable. The service at times was lacking and that would be our only minor complaint. Well worth a visit.

The Sunday night BBQ is a must. Fantastic food and lots of it. Have done this 3 times now and the last time was even better than we remembered. Great hard working staff & very friendly.

“The Yellow Hibiscus”
Reviewed 14 June 2014

The Yellow Hibiscus Restaurant and Bar is located in the grounds of Palm Grove,Vaimaanga Rarotonga and provides generous and tasty meals in a relaxed family atmosphere.Bar and meal prices are reasonable and a highlite of the week is the Sunday BBQ with great slabs of Tuna or Mahi Mahi with huge platters of home-style salads and fresh fruit.You can sit inside nearer the bar or outside on a covered verandah and on Sundays local entertainers come and serenade you.They really do make you feel at home while you sit back and enjoy the wonderful scenery and atmosphere and you may even be tempted to shake your booty on the dance floor! Definitely worth a visit,you may even be tempted to stay on longer at Palm Grove and enjoy the best beach and lagoon in Rarotonga,Cook Islands.Kia Orana...hope to see you there!
