Good food

The french toast is wonderful! We ate breakfast here at the start & end of our trip. The first time we were seated in the larger, indoor part. The wait staff was lovely, and the food came quickly. The other time we decided to go over to the outdoor, covered part. It was not a big place, and not crowded, but they seemed to have forgotten about us! Maybe a shift change? I don't know, but it took forever to get our order taken, and for our food to arrive. Thank goodness the food was still yummy.

Marco's PIzza & Pasta

Ture Italian

Despite off the Main Street in town and may not easily find without local advice; I can not think of any drawback of this pizza place. Abundant topping on a crust base, sauced in genuine Italian flavour. Legend pizza with humble price.Tip: pizza here in tonga size, we had one half-half pizza and that feed 3 ppl well!

Waterfront Restaurant

Reviewed By billychristopher91 - Airlie Beach, Australia

Dinner for 1 a 5star

Wondered in off the street last night to this beautiful restaurant... looks beautiful when you first walk in and I thought originally it would be to pricey for a young man like myself however the first of the day was only $35TPO which is only $5 more then other restaurants in the area! The service was incredible always there is you needed anything and served with a smile which is the main thing! : )The food I could not fault it was quick but not to quick so you know they actually took time to prepare it and it was delicious fish with veggies underneath ( presented perfectly below ) Recommend to all! Treat yourself! Thank you so much for your review Christopher!We are satisfied that you were satisfied with our service and dishes.We do hope to see you again soon.

Great meal great view.

Our last evening in Tonga we ate here. Very good meal. Seafood dish for two and a salad. The view would be nicer without all the cars parked on ocean side. Staff were very friendly.

BEST BURGER ON TONGA

We waited an hour, WAY TOO LONG for a burger - but the burger was worth the wait. My husband and I actually shared one burger for lunch, and we both were satisfied. I have not had a burger this good in a year -- I have been in Tonga for a year. Pineapple, lettuce, tomato, and a very delicious sauce. I will be back ... even if I have to wait again.Thanks so much for your review,Great to hear you enjoyed the Burger, we have got a bit of name for ourselves with regards to the Killer Billfish Jucy Lucy Burger and other on the menu as they are a good size and great taste. Yes that is a long wait for your burger, please if you can send on more details of the time you were here so we can address any issues. Thanks again for coming to Billfish and hope to see you again,Malo,Robert

Sad to leave

We traveled in a group and booked two of Holty's unit. The house for my friend and her 3 teenage boys and a Poolside unit for myself. My friend found the house perfect for her (self catering) needs with everything she needed and a large selection of DVD's for the boys which made for a quiet evening while we sat on the deck having a wine.I loved my unit, a short walk from the house but still my own space next to the pool. My concerns in hot places are often mosquitoes (which love me) and being too hot to sleep. The unit has insect screens on all windows so I could leave the windows open and have a great sleep. With high ceilings and, if needed, a fan above the bed it was ideal. The unit also had fly spray and mosquito coils available. Units were clean and decorated with lots of nice local touches.I had several meals in the cafe. The menu has a good selection with fish, burgers, salad, toasted sandwiches etc. Enjoyed every meal and they were all cooked just right (nothing over or under cooked here!). The beach is a very short walk away, the boys had a great time exploring there and my friend and I enjoyed watching the beautiful sunsets.Our hosts were lovely (enjoyed out chats) and very helpful with suggestions and booking our choices for us. Very stress free and we were sad to leaveHi Karen,Glad that you and Melissa and the boys enjoyed your time with us. Thanks for the lovely review it was our pleasure hosting you. You got in some sights and adventures but also managed relaxed days which is perfect when on holiday.Hope to see you again one day.RegardsPaula and Tim

A good insight into Tongan nightlife

We came here on a Friday night for what we thought was going to be a cultural night. It didn't turn out to ba a cultural night but it was an entertaining evening nevertheless with a full buffet, good entertainment and a good insight into everyday Tongan nightlife. I was subsequently informed that the buffet and entertainment on both Wednesday and Friday night is the same. We later found out that Friday night is the big night out for Tongan locals as all bars and restaurants are legally required to close at midnight on a Saturday. The band was lively and very good, playing everything from Billy Ray Cyrus to Ed Sheeran. The locals got up later on in the evening and were doing traditional Tongan dances to the western music. It was absolutely packed with locals. There were about 300 Tongan locals there.The food at the buffet was a traditional Tongan food which I wanted. It was good and varied but the set up was rather disorganised with numerous lines formed trying to filter into one line leading to a VERY long wait of about 45 minutes to reach the buffet. There was then a subsequent trip to the buffet table required to get dessert. The traditional Tongan desserts however were sublime and like nothing I tasted anywhere else on our trip. If you are looking for a fun night out and an insight into the nightlife of the locals, this is worthwhile. Thank you for your honest feedback. Malo John
