“Best BBQ Chicken Ever”
Reviewed 21 August 2013

We ate at Café Ariki after asking the locals where to eat. We found other restaurants on the island to be way over priced for family dining. The servings at Café Ariki were large and filling. The BBQ chicken with mushroom sauce was amazing. We ended up returning three times on our trip. If you are looking for delicious food at a good price make sure you eat at Café Ariki.

“Awesome cake”
Reviewed 28 July 2013

Had a great lunch with my three daughter here - all ordering cake! The cakes were huge and presented really well.
My coffee was good, and the setting was very pleasant in the courtyard. Fantastic service also.

“Great quiet place for lunch”
Reviewed 10 July 2013

Had an amazing meal here just recently (end of June 2013), small menu however it caters for everyone. Great courtyard for eating outdoors, or if you want you can eat indoors. Quiet location on the backroad. Definitely heading back there soon!!
