Good value!

I had a very pleasant salad for lunch which was reasonably priced. The chips were excellent! My friend wasn't so happy with her fish as it was rather greasy, but she didn't want to say anything about it and upset anyone. However it was clearly very fresh and certainly smelled good, even to a... read more

we dined here several times during our week on Niue. The food was always fresh and the portion size was very generous. They even cooked our fish that we had caught with BJ that morning. This place is not to be missed

We ate here 3 times during our stay in Niue, never once pre booked but it was never a problem they were always happy to find you a table. Both the service and the food was the best we had in Niue. The Tempura prawns and pan fried fish were delicious and prices about the same as in NZ.

Arrived earlier than advertised opening hours which we weren't aware of, and considering that the staff said that they had just finished a big catering job, they were more than happy to cook up some takeaways for us. Must have a good reputation because several people started arriving for dinner.

I didn't even stay to make my order. Staff were uncommunicative and it took 3 tries before I could work out the correct procedure for ordering a meal. In the end I decided to walk away from the surly person who seemed to be in charge. I'm a friendly cheerful person so I guess something had gone wrong earlier. But... More
