This licenced café is one of the least pretentious places on Rarotonga, yet it's food is very tasty. The chef and café principal understand food flavours well and their Pacific-rim fusion is fabulous to eat and freshly prepared.

The day our group dined at Café Ariki, we were served mixed salads, raw-fish, seared tuna steaks, marinated chicken, hot and cold vegetables, together with sauces and condiments, followed by ice-cream, and local fruits combined in a salad. All high quality presentation and of great value too.

Café Ariki is a little of the beaten track when considering a meal out, but well worth the effort to find on the back road in Avarua.

This café is located on the back street away from the main drag - but worth going to. We had a brunch - very popular on Raro. Local made pork sausages on a huge plate of food so go there hungry and you wont be disappointed.
