Stunning view, good food

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!

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 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.

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!
