We loved this restaurant. The chef is a local who has trained overseas and can do standard good cuisine but he adds a special touch of Tongan traditional flavours (e..g lime and paw paw on fresh grilled fish-yum!) so we felt good supporting them.

We went for a business dinner and the steak was great. Shame they have such a limited dessert menu - they only had yoghurt parfait the evening we went. The wine was fab and the service very attentive. I would recommend as a nice place to go for dinner whilst in Nuku'alofa

We went there just for dinner, as we were looking to eat lobster. We rang up to different places and this restaurant was the only one that said they had lobster available. From the start the service was kind of patchy, people who arrived and order after us will get served before us, they will forget to bring glasses or... More

We heard lobster was on and we weren't disappointed - it was fantastic! So too was the Octopus entree which came with delicious bread. Everything was beautifully presented, delicious and all in a very elegant setting, the staff were delightful and friendly - what more could you wish for?

The first thing that we noticed was a surprising number of tiny ants running around on the table after we were seated. As soon as the server would brush them away with a napkin they would magically appear again, seemingly from nowhere. Actually they were falling from the ceiling where an electrical conduit opening was not sealed off, it turns... More

We were twice for dinner because it was so overwhelmingly good the first evening we couldn't bring ourselves to check out any other place. We just had to dine here again and it was for sure the right decision! It is unbelievable, but one single chef copes with a whole restaurant custom and brings it to perfection. We had steak... More

Was not able to experience the breakfast but what I saw on offer was average. Unfortunately i was not able to have lunch or dinner at the lodge.

If you are staying in Nikulofa then this place is across the road from the port and ferry berths. The lodge is really nice. Good clean rooms with everything you need. A nice restaurant. Friendly staff.

Probably the most expensive restaurant in Tonga, but well worth the price. Run by a German couple, this restaurant has some of the freshest fish I have had. Definitely worth a visit.

I stayed in the Seaview Lodge, so had the opportunity to use the restaurant on two evenings without the need to make a reservation (something I would recommend doing, if you are not a guest of the lodge). It is open every evening except Saturday and can be classed as fine dining. The menu makes the most of the region... More
