Cottage Breeze Restaurant is located along Vuna Road and o if you walk there from town or one of the nearby hotels, you'll be able to enjoy the beautiful, serene sunset stroll along the promenade. Seating is either inside or, on cool evenings, in the garden (ask for a mosquito coil under the table). The menu offers basic but adequate... More

The food was great - local seafood cooked well, local vegetables and meats - pork, chicken. The food was very tasty and plentiful. A good range of wines at reasonable prices. Service is friendly and casual, nothing seems hurried. The setting has seen better days, looking a little worn , but don't let this detract from the wonderful food, possibly... More

This restaurant was recommended and it was O.K. I guess expectations were too high. No complaints about the staff, service, venue or cleanliness but just slightly disappointed in teh food. Would go again.

the main fish of the day was wonderful. Served with fresh local veggies. Remember the meat usually comes from New Zealand so support the local fisherman. Fish was cooked in a light butter and was fluffy, white and tasty. No deep fry and no crumbs, just fish ....great Wait staff friendly and smiles

We walked past this restaurant the first night because it was deserted. When Little Italy told us an hour and a half wait for pizza, we came back. The welcome and surroundings were so lovely, with gentle music. THEN THE FOOD! Our fish meal was one of the best things we ate on the island, and was clearly island food... More

The restaurant is nicely located along Vuna Road, across the beach, nice and quaint. But perhaps we missed ordering the specialty of the house, my friend ordered surf and turf, steak and prawns. The staff missed the surf and kitchen served only the turf. My friend called the attention of staff and said he ordered steak and prawns, the staff... More

Cottage Breeze is a nice quaint place near to the sea front at Kolomatua. I had lovely fresh sashimi and roast lamb. Really lovely experience. The service was quite good and the staff friendly and polite. I would recommend people to dine here. However do check in advance if they are open since they do not open on the weekend... More

At the advice of a family member, visited Cottage Breeze Restaurant with great expectations due to the high praise given to this place and was pleasantly surprised. Simple food done very good, so I had to come back again and was not disappointed. Compliments to the chef who cooked my t-bone and lamb rack perfectly.

Myself and my partner had dinner here to celebrate our last night in Tonga- this was a really tasty meal and great value. They offer a small but yummy menu of Pacific style food. I would recommend the fish dishes which are wonderful. Service is great too. A bonus is that the drinks are super good value too! A must... More
