I am vegetarian: 'Could you just make an egg please?' 'We don't got eggs.' 'How about a grilled cheese?' 'We don't got cheese.' 'Maybe just some bread?' 'We don't got no bread!' Unfriendly, strange, and definitively unaccommodating!

A lot has already been said that's pretty accurate. Yes service is really slow, but they usually only have 1 or 2 people working, it's fresh, and you're on island time. The mosquitoes are pretty bad so wear repellant if prone to getting bit like I am. They usually start closing by 830/9 pm. They do sell out of fish.... More

Puffy's is a great place for fish & chips with lovely homemade tartar sauce. The owners are a charming married couple and one can walk there on the beach...just don't arrive for dinner too late.

We visted Puffy's twice. We asked about the Island night on the Wednesday and they told us it was not on as they had no bookings. We ate the cafe once and found the meals nice in a takeaway fashion. The fish was better than the chicken judging by what was left on plates. The salad garnish on the plates... More

We went to Puffys for lunch. Puffys is a house, the restaurant is outside at the back under the pergola, the décor is basic, feels like your dining at someones home. The workers are friendly, there was only another couple dining and it took ages for us to get our fish n chips, the service is slow, but thats expected... More

Quite a nice setting on a sunny day but for us it was raining. The food was OK but the service was slow.A number of groups arrived and the owners were working pretty hard to keep up.There was a limited choice with some options not available on the day we were there. Prices were a little expensive for the type... More

We went to Puffys a couple of times fro dinner during our stay at Etu Moana. It was a 10 minute walk down the beach (bring headlamps/flashlight - it can be a dark walk and you do not want to stub your toe on a fallen coconut). We had fish and chips and chicken and chips. Both were very fresh... More

We were staying at Paradise cove and went here for dinner. Lovely ladies, very clean tables and kitchen area. The menu is small but well priced with enough variety for all. We had fish chips and salad. The fish was thick and well cooked. The salad was scrumptious. Good chips. This is great value, $20 or a small serve $12... More
