We were really excited to try this place. Although it was fun eating with the locals, the food fell short. The steak and chicken were both unusually chewy. Some of my steak was inedible. But this is a good example of "you get what you...More

We thought we would sample some authentic Polynesiean cuisine by visiting this restaurant opposite our hotel. Big mistake. The food was virtually inedible - the barbecue meat was far too dry and chewy. Our advice? Don't bother.

This is near the Manava hotel and is a good choice for an evening meal. They serve large dinners and seem to specialize in fish. The place is informal but the food is delicious.

Saw the good reviews on tripadvisor so went there for dinner. A large unpaved lot is located adjacent to the restaurant which made parking easy. A table was set up for us right away despite a full house. The atmosphere was festive and inviting. Waited...More
