Mango is super spot to chill out, rest, imbibe, resuscitate the body and socialize. Part of the Moorings facility it becomes the briefing venue for the start of a sailboat charter, home for espresso, beer or wine, breakfast, lunch and dinner, fresh local caught fish and all good home cooking standbys! You can meet all kinds of wandering sailors who... More

On the waterfront with a wide range of small and full meals. The grilled lobster was outstanding...staff put aside a large one fit for two. Other meals were good. Highly recommended.

We ate here several times while we were in Neiafu and were never disappointed. It is a great place to socialize, watch the rugby, or just relax and look at the yachts in the harbour. If you are there for the free wifi, be aware it can be slow/ nonexistent at the end of the month when they hit their... More

Had a celebratory dinner here for the end of our kayaking trip. Setting was lovely, staff friendly and the food was the best from all the restaurants we ate at. Half a lobster for 40TOP was great value. The restaurant also organised a large chocolate birthday cake as we were celebrating a special birthday - was yummy too!

If you're looking for high quality food, you have to try Mango and their Lobster dish! It was delissshh! Wifi is a bit less reliable though, however, it doesn't matter. The place provides you with great views especially during sunset.

We had Mango Cafe recommended to us at dinner last night by an Australian couple. They thoroughly recommended the fish burger, so both Susie and I visited today. We both ordered the fish burger, however both of us received fish burgers where the fish was not cooked properly. Not really into a raw fish burger and left a little disappointed.... More

Great food, good service, and free Wi Fi. The meals are a very good size. I can recommend the Chicken burger and the Pizza's.. The local beer Maka is very refreshing on a hot day.

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.
