Friends Cafe
👍 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.

👍👍 In Google maps you can see the features around the areas where the tsunami wave entered the land from the ocean. It's a huge gap on the nearby beach , you can also see huge drag lines caused by the tsunami wave in the gap of land on the beach . Me and a friend of mine dived around the nearby coral r...

Cafe Tropicana
😐 The guy who owns this place is seriously miserable and grumpy, you get the impression he's trapped in the island. However definitely best coffee on island by a distance

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...

'Oholei Beach Resort
Resort hotel
🫤 Please don’t waste your money here. The main attraction, Hina’s Cave, has been fairly closed since the Tsunami. So now the function is held in a tiny hall with small child’s play plastic chairs. Spoke directly with the owner for a request, to which she agreed but did the complete opposite. Very frus...

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...

Liku'alofa Beach Resort
😠 Ten months after the tsunami hit this location, there is nothing left of this resort and it has not been rebuilt. Here are photos from our tour of the island on Oct. 28th, 2022. The dirt road leading to the property had been chain locked. There is only debris on the land and beach.

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...

NOA Guest House
Indoor lodging
😠 Way too pricey for what you get $60 per night....given Tongans live on about $200 per month (US dollars)...equals about $6-$7 per day. $15 per night would be more reasonable for what you get. Extra charge for WiFi per 2 hours, extra charge for using washer....the extra charges for such use is a nega...
