There are only a handful of restaurants in Niue, and this was definitely one of the best. They seemed to be open most often. Pleasant staff - family owned and run. They had a good selection from chicken to burgers to steak and shrimp. Food was very good. They had the best cocktails. They had a drink called an "Eruption"... More

Food took a while to come out, and you don't always get everything you ordered. But other than that it was a pleasant dining experience

We had one evening meal here, food was okay it was just disappointing for us that there was no fresh fish available, however, that happens. We know others who were luckier and had some really good meals here.

We had dinner 3x during our 10 day stay in Niue. Outstanding fish - we tried pan fried and battered. I think there is a family connection between one of the fisherman and the cafe - we saw a picture of the Wahoo we were eating! We also tried the steak and the chicken - fab. Wanted to try the...

The meals were of good quality and well presented. There was food for the carnivores and they did a special request for the vegetarian. Dinners were of good size we did not have space for desert. The chips with the mains are good.

Busy on the night we visited but the sole waitress handled all with aplomb and calm. Wonderfully cooked steak and Wahoo on that night and some amazing fish and chips at a previous lunch make this easy to recommend.

Delicious fresh fish, friendly staff, good location. Pays to book for dinner, very popular little place. Would love to see raw fish on the menu. Check this place out when in Niue.

Food is excellent - particularly enjoyed the fish dishes we had, and staff were really friendly. Service let them down for a lot of customers on our second visit where they were struggling with what appeared to be a large catering or take-away order being finished off while evening customers were arriving - however I'm sure that lesson will have...
