The staff are friendly & helpful, always keen for a chat.
A very carefree, relaxed atmosphere with delicious food and drink - plenty of variety! Located right in the middle of town. Great place for tourists!

“Has everything, including fabulous food”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

Delicious food. Great breakfast/dinner pies...we bought and froze several. Lisa, owner, knows and has all the Neiafu info you need, including cruising charts. Internet is the fastest. We were always welcome and could stay as long as we wanted. The staff is wonderful. If we could choose only one restaurant in Neiafu, Cafe Tropicana would be the one.

“Owner Extraordinaire”
Reviewed June 21, 2013

The owner of this fine establishment was a pleasure to deal with and was very helpful!! We had very tight travel plans and the ferry personal were being "difficult" he was very helpful and helped us get to our destination. I could not have done it without him.
