Had one of the best Fish and Fries in town. It was on a weekday lunch - so it was quiet and peaceful. Located right beside the jetty with an amazing view of the sea. Neat and clean environment and a lovely place to dine.

The Reef Cafe, on the wharf next to the fish market, is not to be missed. Run by one of Tonga's colourful characters, ex-pat New Zealander Trevor who has been there for years, the food is simply excellent and reasonably priced. Nice New Zealand wines,...More
