The Rarotongan Resort & Spa
Captain Andy's Beach Bar & Grill
Captain Andy's Beach Bar & Grill offers a casual dining experience with a varied menu. It is named after a famous trading schooner skipper, Captain Andy Thomson. Captain Andy's historic limestone and coral house still stands across from The Rarotongan Beach Resort & Spa and has now been transformed into SpaPolynesia LUXE @ Lime Blossom Villa. Renowned as one of the most colourful seafarers in the South Pacific, Captain Andy's has taken on the personality of its namesake: relaxed, fun and appreciative of the simple island lifestyle. Enjoy a selection of steaks, fish & chips, burgers, pizzas, pasta, omelettes, salads and seafood dishes. The All-Day Menu is available daily from 11am to 9pm - ideal for a casual poolside dining experience. There's also a fun Kids 'Gone Troppo' Menu for children to age 11, and of course, high-chairs are complimentary.
We are happy to cater anytime to guests with special dietary requirements and our menus indicate gluten free, dairy free, nut free, paleo, vegetarian, vegan, raw vegan. Please feel free to talk with our Chef who will also be delighted to assist you.
TE VAKA Restaurant
A soaring, dramatic timber building right on the water's edge, decorated with fine Cook Islands art and crafts, TE VAKA Restaurant is the main dining room at The Rarotongan Beach Resort & Spa. Decorated with elegantly hand-carved oe (paddles) and traditional outrigger canoes (vaka) suspended from the ceiling, TE VAKA also features some of the resort's signature hand-crafted lighting.
Enjoy dining on the the long outdoor deck which sits directly over the water. From here you can even see the fish swimming below you in the lagoon or drink in the sun setting across the sea by evening.
