Trader Jacks

For great seafood, check out Trader Jacks by the water’s edge at Avarua Wharf, the harbour at Avarua. The restaurant is truly an institution in the country, just think that it has been described by politicians and journalists as the Cook Islands’ second parliament and true financial centre!


"We live to eat, not eat to live!" - this is a popular saying you will hear said time and again by the Cook Islanders. If you enjoy your food, you will take great pleasure in the Cook Islands. Food is the essence of life, and with the seas of the South Pacific lapping at their door and fertile volcanic soils producing fine produce, dining at any level is sure to be enjoyed.
