“Good atmosphere, bad food”
Reviewed January 12, 2013

Unfortunately we weren't told not to go here until after we had eaten here. Food was not nice at all. Friendly service but very bad food. Not worth paying less for not great food :(

Kia Orana,

Thank you for your constructive comments on your bad experience at Mama's Cafe.

I am pleased to advise that we will be closing Mama's Cafe for refurbishment & revitalisation and will roll out a brand new product complete with new chefs, new service staff, a new menu and much much better food.

Kia Manuia,

Rohan Ellis

“Friendly staff, great value”
Reviewed December 5, 2012

Just what we needed at the right time. Didn't want to pay a fortune in a restaurant at resort for a burger and stumbled across Mama's Cafe. The staff were so helpful and bubbly and great ambassadors for the island. Awesome value for money also
