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

Not the cheapest restaurant, but their food is outstanding! We had the Gnocchi and blue cheese, with chicken both were world class. Would recommend this.

Everything was fancy, a little on the pricey side but well worth it. Gudrun and Franz are awesome and accomodate any request you have. Will definately be going back there next time i'm in Tonga :)

Quite expensive comparatively, and can be very hit and miss whether you get good service and food. I have had both very good and not so good experiences here

The Austrian owner and chef Franz is providing European cuisine on a very good level at the end of the world where it is quite an effort to get together all those ingredients in proper quality - he manages to do so and this has got its price which is fair enough. We were so kindly invited to join the... More
