The meals were very nice, but the prices put you off eating there more than once... didn't do the Beach BBQ night as it was $45 each, and didn't include drinks (and wasn't even on the beach). Breakfasts were good, as were the Tropical Punch mocktails.

We ate here on both an À la carte and BBQ night. We were really happy with the food from the menu, sharing the lamb and the pasta dish. Both were really scrummy and the service was good. The staff were friendly and polite and looked lovely. The atmosphere and setting is also lovely. We later came here for the... More

We ate at the buffet which was just barely average.The young hostess was bordering on rude when I moved slightly ahead of her on the way to our seat. She snipped,``where are you going, you don`t know where you are to sit!`` It was the show with local people that made this dining experience fantastic. They were not like so... More

Four of us had an evening meal there. The setting was very nice, staff friendly and service very good. The food was above average, but not excellent.

When we stayed in Aiututaki, we used to go to Tamanu almost every day to eat there. We liked the restaurant set on a beach, where you can watch beautiful sunsets and during the day always some cats or chickens come for a visit. We also liked a lot the island night in Tamanu with an interesting performence of local... More
