“fresh fish”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 November 2013

if you arrive not too late you can taste their fresh tuna in the classical fish and cheps plate. We stayed next door so we went only for take-away. Do not expect a restaurant but a very casual venue by the beach. For us the most important thing is the quality of food and Puffy's deliver a good quality and big portions too. They also do chicken and beef on a small menu. We didn't try those. Almost forgot....good value for money.

“Great cheap place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 November 2013

We had dinner here on our first night on Aitutaki and we were pleasantly surprised. Puffy's was recommended by our accommodation. Upon arriving we were a bit skeptical of the quality as it is a small place at the back of someone's house. We had chicken & chips and it was delicious! One of the best meals we had on Aitutaki! We highly recommend this place to all visitors to Aitutaki!

“basic but nice”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 November 2013

As with island life, if your planning to go for dinner or lunch, check that they are open.
Fish and chips were great. Steak and salad were great.
value for money was not too bad. Cold beer.

“Not bad as take away. Far from a good restaurant”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 October 2013

We ordered fish and chips only. first order of the day, no other orders but we waited more than half an hour for that...
The taste was barely average. We expected better flavour.

“Very Relaxed”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 October 2013

Very good fish and chips, which comes with a fantastic salad. The setting is very relaxed and very friendly. There is a small bar with a limited choice but the drinks are cold and that's all you need!
We believe that the chicken and chips is good too.
Thumbs Up!
