the food was very good, great selection for dinner and breakfast, service was a little slow at times but very friendly. The price for dinner was a little high. The portions were good. I liked it very much.

Have dined here several times on different business trips to Port Moresby. The weekday luncheon buffets change themes each day...Asian, Mediterranean, Pacific, etc. Food is good and, of course, being a buffet, the variety and quantity is substantial.The food is tasty. Service is attentive. Definitely worthy of repeat visits.

I eat at the Rapala whenever visiting Pom. The Rapala sets a very high standard. The lobster dishes are standouts. So are several deserts- Crepes Suzette and Queen Emma chocolate pudding. Many other imaginative dishes on the menu. The wine list is exceptional. And, compared with all other options, a completely secure location with undercover parking. Keep it up.

This by far is our favourite restaurant in Port Moresby.
From the moment you walk in, you are greeted with nothing but warm 'PNG smiles' and you feel so invited.
From the decor, lighting, music, large comfy chairs - the ambience is set and you settle in.
The service - again fantastic and you cannot fault the food, wine selection or price.
Many reviewers have commented on the costs of food/wine, when you live in PNG you fully understand that this is the standard and it's across the board no matter where you eat/stay.

Wonderful - thanks again to Stephanie for the reservation/table nd attention o detail. And thanks to the wonderful staff.
