The cost of eating and drinking out in Rarotonga and Aitutaki is similar to New Zealand and Australia, and generally good value for money.

There is a wide variety of eating and drinking places to enjoy, many on the waterfront or beachfront, or in picturesque settings.

Cafés, restaurants, beach bars, and 'island feasts' almost every night of the week, offer a range of cuisine from pub meals and bakery foods, to local foods and five-star dining. Hotel and resort eating and drinking venues are particularly well priced in the Cook Islands.

As the Cook Islands are spiritually guided by the Christian religion, there are only a few venues offering alcohol on Sundays, mainly hotels and restaurants.
