Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Superb fish of the day. Excellently prepared, not dry at all, just so delicious. Even came with a lovely side salad. Staff were so kind and the portions were generous. (And of course the view was first class😊)

We ate here about 3 times during our trip and always had a lot of fun - the ambience is very relaxed and happy. Food is good and the staff are very nice. We did have one night where half the menu was off but...this happened a bit in Niue! If seas are rough, no fishing - which means no fish on the table! I will be going back on our next trip!More

This outdoor cafe is situated down a short lane off the main road in Alofi next to the (disused??) mini putt rink. Ideal if you are looking for a quick bite with a beer. The usual burgers, fish and chips and salads are on offer...alongside sandwichs, wraps and smoothies made to order (although some items were not available on the day of our visit). An ideal cheap and cheerful dining option for lunch.....More

What a glorious spot for a quick bite , happy hour or dinner overdoing the water . We visited almost every day and saw many locals and visitors doing the same . Pauline’s cakes are fabulous and baked fresh daily . We tried most including...banana and caramel , lemon berry and yoghurt, sticky date , chocolate , vanilla , passion fruit and don’t forget the bread and butter pudding . There’s also burgers , pita pockets , salads and a variety of drinks including delicious looking milkshakes . Lovely welcoming staff and great laid back music. A real gem and a great way to while away a lazy hour or so watching the waves .More

Delicious food, very casual setting, pleasant staff. Not the fastest service on any of the three occasions we dined at Vaiolama, however there is always plenty of locals and visitors to strike up a conversation with and sip on a cocktail

Thick cheese and pineapple toasted sandwiches and grilled Wahoo burger with chips. washed down by a nice thick milkshake. After 4 years since last in Niue, was great to see this place still open and unchanged.

This is a fantastic cafe with great undercover and outdoors seating with a great sea view. Wonderful staff who are extremely obliging. Great food including fresh fish to die for and smoothies worth the trip on their own.

Our first trip to Niue and we fell in love with this rustic eatery. Had lunch there twice - beautiful toasted and fresh sandwiches which are made to order, yummy cakes and smoothies. Our dinner visit did not disappoint with tempura prawn entree, pan seared...fish with rice and Bok choy for main and a piece of pineapple cake for dessert. All washed down with a glass of mid priced chardonnay and served up with a smile and a "thanks for coming". Beautiful views and dinner was the best meal we had on the island. Thanks so much for the wonderful food and hospitality.More

Thursday is Happy Hour night and being Niuen has no set hours apart from starting at 4.30 pm, superb staff, excellent food, great company and that most necessary item, good drink. The Mini Golf course is suitably bonkers and has all the challenges you would...expect from a Management who enjoy a good laugh ! Will visit as much as they’ll let me !More
