Chef Zero Restaurant
👍👍 This was by far the best food I had on this trip of four Islands in the Pacific. The catch of the day, Mahi mahi, was so fresh. This was some of the best seafood I've had in a long time. The tuna sashimi was delicious! Please check this place out when in Tonga.

👍 Lovely place with good food. People nice. Lasagna and moussaka tasty, but a bit burnt and not big portions. They don’t share WiFi. You can pay with card.

Ancient Tonga image
Ancient Tonga
Tourist attraction
👍👍 A bit tricky to find if you organise it yourself - the taxi driver needed guidance from the GPS and even then dropped me off at the wrong entrance, however once there I had an amazing experience. I was the only solo traveller that had shown up for that afternoon but was joined by a large group of Ge...

👍👍 Outstanding service, great restaurant, excellent room. We stayed a week, during which staff helped us find and book various meals and activities around Nuku'alofa.

The TOP Restaurant and Lounge
👍👍 Nice Lunch Spot (probably even better for dinner). We were looking for a decent meal and we found a beautiful restaurant with a stunning view. We ordered the fish and chips plus a fish taco. Both were good and the local beer on draught was ice cold. Waitstaff was kind and courteous. Before we le...

Cafe Escape image
Cafe Escape
😐 Food is almost the same as friends, but higher price. Great atmosphere, great food, and great service. The only thing I didn't like is, the high cost of food and the portion of the food for the cost. Other then that it was good. I give this a 3 star rating because they do know how to cook their food...

Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints
👍👍 Temple is the most beautiful place you can ever visit in your life. It brings peace into your life. I love to see the temple in any country I travel to because it reminds me of my covenants that I made with my Heavenly Father. I hope that you will stop by in one of the LDS temple and be able to view...

Around the main building are littl...

Billfish Bar and Restaurant image
Billfish Bar and Restaurant
😠 Beware to the tourist, this restaurant tried to take advantage of me big time. My friend and I waited 2 and a half hours for our meals to come out and when the food arrived they only brought out my friends meal. Then the lady who took my order said I never ordered anything. Being the only white guy...

Vuna Wharf image
Vuna Wharf
👍 This is the first wharf in Tonga. They built the new one on it. It is a short walk to downtown Nuku'alofa about 5 - 10 mins. U can catch a taxi outside the gate to go anywhere. They are not marked, but they will approach you. Same as private island tours other than ship's Agent shore excursions. The...
