Tamanu Beach Resort was a close walk from our villa and it was always worth going there. The food is awesome, and the staff are so friendly. We had our new years eve dinner there and they surprised us all with some Christmas crackers ;-)

We went to the restaurant attached to this resort. The setting was a tropical island paradise - under a large thatched roof gazebo overlooking the lagoon. The menu was limited but the quality of the food was excellent. The waitresses were lovely and helpful. It was a relatively expensive place to dine. Make reservations to dine here particularly for the... More

We were staying at Tamanu and had lunch there on one day and it was really nice, the staff were friendly and the food didn't take very long. I would highly recommend eating at the restaurant and enjoy the amazing view. We also had the Island Night, my husband and I don't normally do those sorts of things, but it... More

The food here was good, the staff was really good. We loved their milkshakes, tasted homemade and just like when we were kids.

Wonderful island night spectacular. Local foods and dancing including a fire show. The host of the evening was great and funny. It was also a great opportunity to have a sneaky peek at the resort as we didn't stay here. Would definitely recommend the island night at Tamanu to all.

Was great and we saw an polynesian show which was well done and personal. Loved that my husband got picked to volunteer his dancing skills. Most fun. The local church members were there and gave us a lovely singing preformance. For sitting down and singing they were awesome! The resturant service and food was excellent. They have a good menu...

We booked a table for 2 people for the weekly Island Night (Thursday) on Monday, in person. When we signed up on the list, we were among the first people to reserve, and we had to provide the name of our accommodation and leave our credit card information to secure our booking. We neither received a written confirmation with further... More

The bbq night is a fixed price $45 each and bookings are a must. The restaurant is lovely and open, looking to the beach. There were lots of different salads and they were all lovely. The meat was not so great but my husband said the fish was very good. Dessert was the big disappointment.....canned fruit salad, small serves of... More

We ate here for lunch. The restaurant has beautiful views over the beach. The service was okay. The food was very poor. I had a very plain, small, overpriced chicken salad, which I did not enjoy. The drinks were also not great. My husband had a terrible banana thickshake which had no flavour. I would not return here or recommend... More
