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.

I spent a few leisurely hours at the Mango Cafe while in Tonga on a swimming and whale watching holiday. Had snacks, coffee, dinner, drinks (not all at the same time). Food is good and reasonable priced. Coffee is good. Free wifi. Happy hour. Relaxing view, friendly staff. What's not to like?

Most things on the menu were not available, but the drinks were cold and the view outstanding. When you order hot chips you get Taro chips - quite a surprise, not good for the teeth!

Spent a few days staying at the boathouse. Lovely location to just sit and watch the bay and comings and goings of the yachts . Food is good large portions not cheap but good service. We rented kayaks for an afternoon.
