Went there for drinks and to see the fairylights and garden at night. Amazing garden and atmosphere. Food also looked nice but pricey. We did not sample.

We were disappointed in the food,it was extremely average. Liken to Skippers in the USA.Many of the restaurants in this island need bigger budgets with these prices.

This garden had a lovely relaxing feel to it as soon as we entered. It's very pretty to walk around and not very large. We had the world famous lemon meringue cheese cake which was delicious, albeit quite a small portion but it came with...More

We dined here whilst visiting Raro and found the ambience and garden setting very relaxing - be sure to use the provided bug repellent though. Delicious food with a good selection of dishes.

Loved it here, what a great relaxing place to go. It was a little slow, but I think that is the style - what is the hurry. I wish we found this before the last night, as it was right outside our Edgewater Resort. The...More

A great quirky casual dining experience. Opened since 1979 it still has the same owners and the same name. It is a mix of eclectic and local island decor. The walls feature an array of photos of events, people and things. The ceilings are a collage of various types of posters etc. The Tumunu Garden Restaurant also features the "largest little notebook" on the island. Come visit us! A fun place for children too with a garden and "dancing laser fire flys"
