“Great spot for lunch!”
Review of Apii Cafe - CLOSED

Apii Cafe
Cuisines: Polynesian
Description: Apii Cafe was the best find for yum food and value in Rarotonga. New small cafe with outdoor tables. Beautifully cooked fish in coconut cream and coriander served with saffron rice, squash, salad and green banana($12) small size curried chicken but actually the size of a main for $6 served also with rice, salad and squash. Also cold meat sandwiches available at $6. Best value on island. Runs around the back of Cooks corner off main street, opposite the bowling green. Friendly people.

Situated opposite the Bowling Club and just around the corn from Telecom and "the Computer Man, and "two minutes walk from "downtown" Avarua, Apii Cafe is one of the newest addition to the lunch scene. With competitive prices they offer a delicious variety of island style lunches that are both delicious and attractively presented. We ate there frequently this July and August

Apii Cafe has wonderfully delicate food in a lovely garden setting. The restaurant is on the road behind town -- go past Cooks Corner, turn right at the Computer Man sign and it's a little bit on your right. They have a little hut where you order. Then, take a seat in one of the covered picnic bench tables and they bring your food to you. The raw fish is amazing. Their coriander fish or curried chicken is really good. Make sure you get the freshly squeezed juice of the day. If it's the starfruit juice, it's your lucky day. Oh, and they have free bananas. :-)

If you're in a hurry, tell them. Sometimes, it takes a little while to get your food, but it's simply because it's a really small cafe. For those of us on vacation, time is never a problem.

Excellent food, great environment, service on the ball - an all round great dining experience in Raro and real value for money.

Had the ika mata with corianda and freshly squeezed coconut cream, just sublime. Highly recomended.

A super place opposite the bowling club. The food is exceptional and the service friendly. A real cute little place - if we had found it earlier, it would have been the only place we'd have had lunch.
