A very nice lunch there with friends. Dive tours and kayak rentals on the beach right in front. Good food and interesting outlook.

Saltwater Cafe is on the halfway mark, staff are friendly, food pretty good, the outlook over the lagoon is great. Not open Saturdays.

We had breakfast at Saltwater during our stay at Sea Change Villas. The cafe is a 5 minute walk from the villas and is the perfect place to sit and eat looking out over the beautiful lagoon. I had the big breakfast with bacon, eggs, sausages and all the works while hubby had the pancakes which were large and fluffy. The service and food were wonderful along with the view. We are returning to Raro in Feburary 2013 and we will be going to Saltwater to have breakfast again...and we might even sit and stay for lunch. If you are travelling to Raratonga a visit to Saltwater Cafe is a must do.

We just spent a wonderful week eating our way around Rarotonga. We are both foodies and especially love Thai cuisine. We found this really cute cafe, 1/2 way around the island, called Saltwater Cafe, and to our surprise they offered several authentic Thai dishes. We both ordered the Tom Yum, I had the chicken and my husband had the seafood variety. It was truly delicious, with all the authentic ingredients you would expect to find in a Tom Yum soup. I loved that this lovely cafe had something a little different to offer as well as an amazingly comprehensive menu. Something for everyone and did I mention the view!! The service was excellent with a truly happy vibe from the friendly owners. 11 out of 10
