“Falala fa I miss u!”
Reviewed November 27, 2013 via mobile

Food was tasty, service was very very good.
We were a group that had high expectations and they were met. It is at the mid to high-end in terms of the cost of the meals and drinks. But well worth it. We dinned in on the first night and on our last night we had our meal(s) take away. I am planning to go back to Niue again next year and will eat there again.

“Fresh Flavours”
Reviewed November 10, 2013

Welcoming staff and a great verandah area. We enjoyed the fish and corn cakes made with local wahoo. Just lovely - we only made it for lunch but I'd love to go back for an evening meal to enjoy their famous sashimi.

“Lovely food, great location”
Reviewed November 6, 2013

The staff at Falala Fa were lovely and welcoming. Always a postive sign. We were promptly seated however it did take a while for the wait staff to take a drinks order. Then it took a while for our food order to be taken. We then waited for half an hour for our entrees and a further hour for our mains.
Having said that, the food was absolutely amazing and could not be faulted for presentation and taste.
Justifiably popular but they need more staff on.

Hi,

We do apologise for the delay in our service that night. Its one of the challenges we face here on a small island, finding good and reliable staff to assist. We do appreciate your feedback and we will try and address this for the new year. We're glad that you still enjoyed your meals with us.

Thanks again,
BJ

“Gr8 food at a Gr8 price”
Reviewed November 6, 2013

Couldn't fault this place, there was one lady doing all the taking orders, serving,collecting plates, serving drinks and fixing up the bill, not once did we see her stress and she just kept smiling!! There were three staff in the kitchen who just didn't stop. Very impressive.
