We came there around 5.30 pm and still received the lunch menu which was by far cheaper and absolut enough to my belly :). Great resort with a super flair and view. Recommended 100%

Perfect location facing the lagoon over the swimming pool. You will enjoy the sunset while ordering your dinner. A very small operation doing its very best to satisfy the patrons. So you will like with friends. Unfortunately the cuisine is good but very unsophisticated. Anyway if you are not too focused on what you eat you'll spend a good evening

Tables are placed mostly around the infinity pool and towards the beach There is a pleasant bar for pre or post dinner (or lunch) drinks Excellent and varied choice on menu... More

We were staying at an adjacent property and decided to have a meal at the Little Polynesian Restaurant. What a great decision. The dining area is set around and infinity edge pool overlooking the south pacific ocean providing a serene island dining experience. The staff are friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. The small menu which includes a mix of local and... More

My partner and I went their one night without a reservation, and was warmly welcomed. The Mosquitos were really bad and we were bitten alive but they had spray which they gave us. I had the pork belly which was incredible 10/10. Would definitely dine there again

We dined at Little Polynesian Restaurant & Bar in December 2016. The restaurant is located by the pool and also right in front of this amazing lagoon. The food was spectacular and so was the service.

Great spot for lunch! In general the hotels aren't the best places to eat on the island, but Little Polynesian was an exception.
