We are very lucky to have a fantastic selection of restaurants and cafes in the Muri Beach area, where our guests can enjoy anything from a coffee and French croissant to local Fish burgers and chips. Here are some of the places our guests love to visit:
Muri Night Food Market
What started out as a Thursday night market to cater for tourists staying in the Muri area, has now expanded to include Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Sundays. The night market has a selection of delicious local food stalls including main meals such as cajun chicken, tuna with pawpaw dressing, local fish curry, chicken carbonara and a selection of dishes with a topping of our famous Rarotongan mushroom sauce!
Thursday and Sunday nights offer a greater selection of food stalls including an amazing assortment of desserts such as cheesecake, meringues, locally baked cakes and delicious pineapple and custard pies. Smoothies and juices are also becoming popular on the island and you will always find a stall with local fresh juice or custom made smoothies. Tuesdays and Wednesdays usually have at least four stalls, or more if it is a lovely evening.
Live entertainment is on Thursday and Sunday nights, adding to the great atmosphere. When the weather is nice there are tapa mats provided to sit on so you can enjoy dinner and music for the evening.
We recommend our guests visit the night market to taste the local cuisine and enjoy a fun evening under the stars while being entertained by local singers.
Rickshaw & La Casita
Other local restaurants in the Muri area include Rickshaw, a Vietnamese fusion restaurant that has a selection of Thai and Vietnamese food, with many dishes using delicious local ingredients such as locally caught tuna.
La Casita is a Mexican restaurant located next to Rickshaw which serves burritos, quesadillas, enchiladas, pizzas and more.
LBV & Deli-Licious
LBV is a great café that has become very popular with both tourists and locals, serving great coffee and a wonderful selection of patisseries, deli and cooked items during the day, and a full fine dining dinner menu on Friday and Saturday evening.
Deli-Licious is across the road from LBV, serving fresh homemade salads and sandwiches, cabinet items, delicious coffee and more.
Located right on the water overlooking Muri lagoon, Sails serves breakfast, lunch and dinner with a modern Pacific style flavour. This is a great place to enjoy a cocktail and enjoy the vibe of the Muri beach area.
These are just a few of the dining options available in the Muri area. We will be happy to recommend other dining options in Muri and around the Island, with many great local restaurants catering to all tastes and food requirements.
