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.

Stopped by for lunch yesterday as it was a plane day and we knew it would be open. Not a busy day and the only thing available on the menu was fish and chips. Lucky for us this is exactly what we had come for....The fish was as tasty a piece of fish as I have ever eaten. Fresh, taste the nearby ocean kind of stuff. Wahoo was the fish and it was cooked to perfection with a crispy, tasty batter surrounding it. Two large pieces was the serve along with fries that could have been a bit crisper and a delicious little salad with shave veggies, curly lettuces, tomato and cucumber. Add in a tartar sauce that was also quite tasty and it was a great lunch. Cold beers available.More

An ideal place for anyone to experience and taste the fresh Niue food such as, the coconut grab, rawfish marinated with lime, coconut cream and fresh local vegetables, also to taste the favorite traditional dish., "the takihi".

I wouldn't go here again. We had to wait ages for food that was pretty basic. For what it was it was expensive. Kai Ika, Gill's Indian, and the Crazy Uga are way better options.

I had heard mixed reviews of the place. It was empty the night we went. there was a new waitress who sadly did not have a clue about what to do or anything about the bar or wine list. Food disappointing too. I was uncomfortable...with the place and would not dream of going back when the other places in Alofi are so good and hospitable.More

Now named R'Linas, this restaurant is a must do in Niue. The food is AMAZING and should not be missed. The owners, Sonia and Stan, ensure that all your needs are met, and also have a well stocked bar. This location is also perfect for...large groups and functions.More

With our 3rd trip to Niue we visited this restaurant now called R'Lina's. Sonia was so friendly and welcoming and looked after us each visit. We played darts with Sonia and Stan and other dinner guests and had a great night. 1 night we experienced...a traditional "Umu" which Sonia spent all day preparing and cooking. This is food cooked in banana leaves and baked in the ground with hot stones. Absolutely delciious! Other meals we enjoyed were fish and chips and chicken kebabs. Yum! We also enjoyed karaoke 1 night which was hilarious. This restaurant is spacious and so clean with an awesome ambience with great music, lights and delicious food. The mozzies are quite bad at night on the island so cover yourself with insect repellant including your ears then you will enjoy yourself more when you go out to all the restaurants. Thank you Sonia for making us feel so welcome. Your service was fabulous. We will definitely be back! I recommend this restaurant to all travellers.More

The food here was beautiful. The mahimahi was beautifully cooked with a lovely light sauce. We picked a bad night as the owner was waitress, cook, bar person all in one and wasnt happy with her husband who hadnt turned up. We got bitten alive...by the bugs and had to wait the longest for food on the island, but it wasnt unreasonably long. No ocean view from this establishment. But it was an interesting experience and couldnt fault the food. they were out of burgers and steak which disappointed some clients.More

I was lucky enough to be here with a group of girls and hosted by the proprietor on our last night. Incredible food and the best stocked bar in Niue.... and the best Karaoke selection I've ever seen! Can't wait to come back next year!
