Antipodes specialises in al fresco style cuisine enjoyed by the many nations occupying the greater Mediterranean Region. This cuisine lends itself perfectly to the style of Antipode’s classical architecture, as well as being suitable for the climate of the Cook Islands.

The al fresco style of dinning not only offers a selection of singular a la carte dishes, but also a range of shared boards, platters and entrees. Patrons are encouraged to take their time, enjoy the magnificent views and explore the interesting selection of wines available.


The range of daily Blackboard Specials is determined by the availability of fresh local product, and whenever possible, local organic products are incorporated into the dishes.


On Sundays, the very popular ‘Sunset Sessions’ spiced up with a mixture of local live entertainment is featured – starting at 5.30 pm and going through to 10 pm.


Antipodes Restaurant is open for Lunch on Wed, Thurs, Fri, (11:30-2 pm) and for Dinner on Wed, Thurs, Fri, Sat, Sunday and Monday (5:30 pm - 9:30).


The Restaurant is closed for the whole day on Tuesday; closed for Lunch on Saturday, Sunday and Monday.
