“Worth a visit!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

Great food at reasonable prices, the serves are huge (Tongan Size) only one of our party of four finished! There were a number of locals eating there the night we went which is always a good sign. Plenty to choose from on the menu from fish to steak and Italian food

“Very Classy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

I enjoyed a delicious meal at Waterfront Restaurant. The one vegetarian item on their menu was delicious. It was a huge serving of oven baked penne pasta with parmesan cheese and fresh tomatoes. I had ordered a side of vegetables as well.
Thank you Waterfront for allowing me to take home whatever I was unable to eat!
The profiteroles for desert were heavenly. Good size to share amongst three people.
Staff were very obliging.
Malo 'aupito (thank you very much for the experience)

“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2012

Great restaurant on the waterfront. Service was slow, however, it was nice to sit back and have a drink in a beautiful restaurant, completely unexpected. The food was delicious and the staff friendly and helpful. Would highly recommend to those visiting tongatapu.

“Tasty, professional, and large helpings”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2012

Stayed at the Lodge. 3 breakfasts and 1 dinner

Continental Breakfast is basic but decent. Coffee is great. The optional French Toast and the Omlettes are very nice

Dinner portions are huge. Fish very tasty. Decent salad. Great oven potatoes.

Had lunch and dinner in several places in Tonga. This was the best. Maybe a bit more expensive – but worth every penny
