The local chef Soane creates very nice and tasty dishes by mixing local ingredients with international style food. When staying in Nuku'alofa make sure to have dinner here at least once.

We stayed in house and breakfast was included (with tea, coffee and juice). At the end of a week, they hit us with a bill for $5.50 - $7 per bottle of water each breakfast. At no stage were we told water was an extra cost and it was not on the menu anywhere. One day we asked for sandwiches... More

Called to find out if open but advised that the restaurant is closed for renovations, re-opening in May. Pity, because our recollections if the place from previous visits have been very good.

Enjoyed cocktails and a light meal on their new deck! Lovely view on the waterfront in a quiet neighbourhood not far from the main road in town (less than 5 minutes walk - past the Palace). Great place to go for a quiet drink or if you fancy one of the best meals in town then this is the place!!... More

I have spent a few nights there on previous travels and it has always been a mixed feeling..such a nice location, but "strange" owners. Now the ownership has changed, the new owners have totally refurnished the place and have great management in place. I totally recommend it for anybody. The attached Restaurant is operated by a great tongan chef and... More

We popped in for lunch and were blown away by the standard of the food, the service and general vibe. We loved it so much we went back a further 3 times in our short stay. The waiters are attentive and friendly. The one waiter whose name I'm kicking myself for not getting was funny and kind, taking my baby... More

I cannot recommend this place enough .. Great service and great food ... Reasonably priced as well. The wine by the glass is good quality (not from a cask) and the presentation of the food was excellent

It's worth seeking out the restaurant at the Seaview Lodge. You'll experience fine dining in nice surroundings. It's not cheap, but is very good value for money. Friendly and helpful staff.

Luna Rossa was closed so we had to find somewhere for dinner Saturday night. My husband located Seaview and we went with hesitations after a great experience at Luna Rossa. The biggest smile on the waiter was the best and off to a good start and our family dining experience just escalated from there.. The entrees, the main, the dessert,... More

Description
Hi there, I would love to review this restaurant, however its only listed on your site as a hotel and not restaurant, and as we didn't stay there didn't feel right in reviewing it as such. Hope you can help, cheers.
