Excellent fish

Lovely spot little away from the 'busy' center, by the sea. Good place to while away a lazy afternoon. Fish is fresh and the best choice. Bit overcooked even when asked to be medium, rice could be more al dente so you'd be better off with mash. The sauces are exquisite, bit of gourmet here. Good... read more

Ok so maybe we didn't catch them at their best. You need to remember that things run on Tongan time around here. We ordered 4 ham and cheese toasties which took 40 minutes to arrive - there was only one other person in the entire restaurant. The odd thing often is that if the place was full it probably would...

While searching for the former Vavau Yacht Club overlooking all of the boats in Bay of Refuge we discovered that it was now the Mango Café. We were so glad to find it!! It's been all redone beautifully. Lots of shade, a great atmosphere, friendly staff and we loved sitting enjoying the local beer in the shade. Friends arrived and... More

We tried Mango Cafe for a late lunch/early dinner during our stay in Vava'u. The location is about 5 minutes walk from town where the swim operators are and has a lovely view of the harbour and yachts. It was however a let down that 3 meal choices were unavailable so we had to go with other options. The menu... More

I went to the Mango a few times. Nice position on the harbour. The staff are friendly, good and fun. The food is generally of good standard. It is a pleasant place to have a meal and if you are lucky catch some local entertainment. During the day if you are desperate for contact with the outside world via the... More

Mango Cafe never disappoints. The food is very good, staff are friendly and the location is very nice. Prices are reasonable but maybe a bit high for Neiafu. I had some Mahi Mahi one night and the cajun tuna another, both delicious. We were treated to the local brass band, wow, awesome night of entertainment as well. Make sure you... More
