Just finished eating a delicious meal here. As an entree we shared Ota Ika a coconut marinated raw fish dish. For the main I can recommend the Thai fish curry, very generous portion size and both prepared and cooked to perfection. The surroundings are very nice looking out into the harbour where many yachts are moored. The staff are all... More

There was a group of us including quite a few kids and we were made to feel very welcome. The portions were a good size and both adults and kids really enjoyed their meals. Service was excellent considering we took up two big tables. Would definitely come again!

All the food here seemed quite expensive even for a remote island and both our meals were overcooked to the point that the fish in our dish more closely resembled cardboard.

What a friendly place. We went for a surprise dinner there, meaning to go to Aquarium Cafe next door, which was closed. We were glad we came. The manager recommended the blackboard special of Sweet & Sour Fish on Noodles, and we both had that. It was lovely - cooked to perfection, and great value at just $15. The service... More

It was okay, food okay, service okay, no locals really which is always a concern for me when I travel. I like places where the locals eat usually the best.

We ate there after a day of diving. The staff were friendly and the tuna steak was very good. They didn't have any more specials even though hey were still on the chalkboard. It was one of the few places that we really liked eating.

The Mango offers absolute waterfront, a really lovely atmosphere. We ordered some delicious sushi. There was great attention to detail, fresh cut flowers on every table and friendly service. We felt it was a bit pricey and the internet Wifi was dreadful at best.

We went to Mangoes as a change from the Tongan Beach resort menu. It was virtually the same! We had fish and chips, they were very small portions of fish and chips were hardly cooked. There was a cat running between tables with a poo hanging out of its bottom. I scared it away a few times and one bloke... More

Dined at Mango three times and was impressed every single time. Food was wonderful and the service the staff provided was very friendly, helpful and efficient. Such a wonderful relaxing place to sit and watch the different yachts & boats coming and going.

Had two meals at the Mango and both excellent. A friendly bar and restaurant with great view. Probably the best restaurant in town.
