Kia Orana, Welcome to the Beautiful Cook Islands

The official site of Cook Islands Tourism Corporation

Restaurants

Surrounded by turquoise waters teeming with sea-life it’s no wonder seafood features heavily on our menus. Our local fishermen venture beyond our reefs early in the morning, returning just in time to deliver delicious fresh morsels of goodness straight to your plate. But it’s not just our seafood which is celebrated, fresh produce grows abundantly in our nutrient rich volcanic soil and our chefs are renowned for their Pacific fare. The choice of divine café’s and restaurants is vast in our small nation and one could easily dine in a different location for every meal of their stay. For if there’s one thing we Cook Islander’s are fiercely proud of protecting, it’s our reputation for creating the best cuisine in the Pacific. Cuisine you can enjoy while basking in the glorious surrounds of our beautiful nation.
