Ordered a toasted sandwich to share while waiting for our boat. Was glad we decided to share as it was actually two toasted sandwiches with fries. The lady serving was very helpful. I had been warned to expect 1 hour waits for food in restaurants in Tonga, I think the toasted sandwich and fries took about half an hour, so... More

There is a bowl full of ripe bananas at the counter that customers can eat free of charge! Loved that! The food we ordered was delish. Their shortbread cookies with a cup of coffee was simply divine! The owner was friendly and went out of her way to make us feel very welcome. Loved the Pacifika spirit of hospitality...big smiles,... More

Great place for brunch or lunch across the road from the Market. The food is delicious, the serving sizes generous and the pricing is very reasonable.

Good basic food. If it is animal, they have it on the menu. A lot of starchy root vegetables are offered with the meals.

Beach Hut has moved to town (Nuku'alofa), next to Morris Hedstrom, opposite the market. They serve good coffee and good lunch sandwiches at a good price!

The Beach Hut has moved from the wharf and now is located adjacent to the Molisi grocery and across the street from the Nuku'alofa central market. The friendly atmosphere, good coffee and excellent food that was offered remains as before. A purchase gives you free WiFi access through the Digicel HotSpot system that seems pretty fast, at least relative to... More

When going into town and not knowing anywhere good to go, we found this little cafe opposite the markets and beside the supermarket. The place looked really clean and modern and sitting in the outdoor area was really relaxing, they do a range of good reasonably priced food and drinks from fresh smoothies and coffees to wraps and salads, i...
