Great food, awesome owner

The best calamari I've had (grilled) and amazing Thai fish curry. The owner, Sonia, is truly gifted at her craft and is so welcoming to the customers (she also delivers). This is a great place to meet other locals and travelers alike- and for people watching.

GREAT food - this is what brought was here night after night during our stay in Tofo. We stopped for a quick beer at lunch time and after seeing the food other people were having decided to check it in the evening and were not dissappointed. The place is very simple and basic but clean. and with a nice relaxed... More

Ate here regularly during our stay. The food was good and very reasonable prices. Tried a few other places and kept coming back to Tofo Tofo. Where ever you eat in Tofo expect it to take some time for your food to arrive. But you're on holiday, what's the rush.

Slightly shabby and not very chic with sticky table cloths. Not suitable for a vegetarian but my husband raved about his seafood pasta with its generous portions of fish.

When I came to Tofo to do some diving this month, everyone told me that they best place to eat in town was Tofo Tofo. I went two times and while the food was decent the first time and stellar the second, the service was seriously lacking. I am not the type of traveller to expect Western standards of service...

When you're in Tofo Beach, be sure to check out Tofo Tofo and order some local fresh cuisine. It's cheap and very very tasty. We had fresh seafood which was delicious. Wash it down with a couple of 2M but not to many as the police station is right next door. :)

Really popular place and extensive menu, but service was seriously lacking. I had a veggie pasta, which was yummy enough, but the lackluster service kind of ruined it for me.
