The restaurant is beautiful but the food was really disappointing. The mahi mahi was not fresh at all. Tuna steak was good but served with cold bland potato chunks. The pork belly was so tough we couldnt cut it and had to request a steak knife, and the “mash” served with the pork was also dry, hard, bland. Maybe we hit it on an off night?

I and my partner had the lunch in this nice restaurant. My partner ordered fish of the day with mash potatoes and veggies and I had salt&pepper squid salad. The food was delicious. Specially the fish of the day. Waiterss was really nice, polite and smiling. I definately would go there again.

Had the most beautiful meal of grilled fish, mash potato and vegetables. This sounds like a rather plain choice but it was the best grilled fish we've ever eaten. The size of the meal was good and it was cooked to our liking. Family members had burgers and lamb shanks (2 on the plate with veges) which they said were really good.

Great seafood in an elegant setting. If there's another restaurant this upmarket in Nuku'alofa I didn't see it.

Delicious mahi mahi and snapper. Big prawns.

Not at all overpriced, and no additional charge for using a credit card (rare in Tonga)
Closed Sundays.
