“So helpful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

The women at Friends Cafe are amazing. They were very helpful at calling us taxi's and providing advice for where to go on our trip. The food is lovely and there is wireless internet. One the last day we drank from coconuts and listened to a music group play music!

“Repeat customers - even though we were only there for three days”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

Heard about Friends, visited Friends on our first day and found ourselves back there every single day we were in Tonga. The food is WONDERFUL, really amazing service with a smile - exactly what we wanted on our holiday. Always filled with people! We couldn't have asked for more, thank you!

“Nice restaurant and nice stuff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

Food is very good in this restaurant. Very stylish Tongan design. You can see photos of Tongan kings and queens. Stuff is like a friends, if you go there second time, you feel you know then many years. Nice place.

“Clean, friendly and easy-going atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013 via mobile

After visiting two times for breakfast, here is what I can say about the place:

Good:
-Clean place
-Staff are friendly and eager to serve
- some good but basic breakfast menu, I like the 'tuna benedict' very much
- good place to catch up on what is happening in town!

Bad:
- my second visit, I was told that they ran out of tuna

Overall, I would come again to this cafe.
