I had an early morning flight so came here for a hearty breakfast after previously coming a few times for a coffee. I had the Spanish omelette (very big!) with toast which was really delicious. They even gave me some jams for my toast free of charge. Lovey place (overlooking the sea) and great service.

Had a lunch here, really good eats and of-course right on the harbour with a view to die for. Comfortable, great atmosphere.

A great little gem of a bar/resturant. Mango has a great selection to choose from on the menu especially the seafood and good selection of local and imported beers. Sitting on the deck over looking the harbour and water front is the ideal way to spend the evening. we dined there a number of times during our Stay in Vava:u

As a keen fisho, I was keen to check out the local game club while in Vava'u and was presently surprised to find it was hosted within the Mango Cafe. The view off the deck is one of the best views in Vava'u, the drinks are cold and generous, and the menu was devine - we went with a local... More

We had lunch here with a group of eight people ,everyone's food was quite good . The service was nice and the beer was cold . The view of the harbor and all of the sailboats was perfect . I would believe this is the nicest restaurant in town .

Mango has, in my view, the best setting in Neiafu. It located on the waterfront and is hence very popular with the yachties who can just jump into their dingy after their meal. The food is not bad but nothing to write home about either. The pastas are OK but avoid the chicken parmigiana.

Stayed at the boat house and dined at mango several times. Enjoyed the friendly staff and the meals are good enough. It is Tonga after all. Wifi was pathetic and couldn't get connected ever. Make sure you hound them to get logged in. Regardless, we loved the view, there was live entertainment most nights and it's all very relaxed.

Thank addem1
