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...

Managed to fit in both lunch and dinner here during our visit. It pays to book for dinner as it is very popular due to the great food on offer. Great place to meet the locals and friendly staff with a great sense of humour.

We ate here once for dinner and once for lunch. We both had the fish and chips for dinner and the portions were so large that when we went back for lunch we just shared one between the two of us. The beer batter was light, crispy, the fish fresh, overall very tasty. Totally recommend the Falala Fa.

We have been to Nuie twice for two weeks each time. And both times this was the best food we found on the Island. Lovely outdoor dining and the freshest fish with the most innovative sauces and good presentation. Nuie is not the place for airs and graces but this is fine dining without the stupid trappings
