Great Happy Hour

I was here Monday 17 August. Happy hour beers: $4 at 4pm, $5 at 5pm, regular price $6 at 6pm. $29 red snapper special. Good table service. Great location at waters edge. Watch the boats come and go meters away.

Location stunning, view fabulous, staff very friendly and the food was great. If you can get out this far, drop in, chill out and let the world pass you by.

This is one of the best places to eat in Neiafu. It gets very full in peak whale watching season. The staff were very friendly and eager to please. The pizza is good but I was a little put off by the fishing club next to it suspending a huge twitching marlin by its tail as it slowly died. Good... More

Had several meals here. Able to dingy into from the boat. Open air cafe looking out to the yachts on the water. Their smoothies are great along with their curry chicken, chicken kebabs and pizzas. Service is a little bit slow but it seems most of Tonga is like this. The owner is super friendly and helpful. Free wifi and... More

We ate here on the first and last night of our boat charter holiday. Superb setting overlooking the harbour with amazing sunsets. The food is good, especially if they have fresh seafood that day. On our last visit we had the fresh mahimahi and tuna which was delicious. A lovely spot!

We were here for a yacht charter with the Moorings and used this cafe before and after our charter. The food was great and the staff went out of there way to look after all the customers no matter how busy they were. Being right on the waterfront was a bonus and only a few steps from our pre-charter accommodation... More

We were not expecting to find such great food in Tonga. We were very pleasantly surprised. We loved it!

We ate here about four times during our week in Neiafu. The food was excellent every time. The fresh lobster was the best I've ever had in my life. Tons of meat with a lemon, herb, butter sauce and mashed potatoes. WOW!

The prices were high for food and drink, but it was right on the water and the service was great. It was a great view of the lagoon and yachts. I had a fish curry, which tasted very good.
