Tofo Tofo is a super cool restaurant right on the outskirts of Tofo (5 minutes' walk from downtown). Local cuisine with a focus on fish but also offering dishes for meat lovers and vegetarians.

The restaurant's decor is 'smart African,' the service is extremely attentive, and the prices are reasonable. A perfect dining spot.

We had a juicy barracuda fillet and grilled squid, both dishes served with coconut rice and a bit of salad (we could also have chosen fries or vegetables as sides). Accompanied by freshly squeezed juices—mango and lemon/mint, respectively.

Before that, we shared a warm seafood salad with freshly fried shrimp, squid, and fish poured over a green salad. Everything was just yum-yum.

We'll be back!

We went for dinner both got very bad food poisoning and are still recovering. I had prawn curry and I'm pretty sure the prawns we're undercooked. My partner had a local seafood dish and also has symptoms of food poisoning although milder. It looks like the food handling protocol was not adhered to or proper hygiene was not applied

Fantastic restaurant, the place to go on Tuesday night! They have live music every Tuesday, really really cool atmosphere. The good is good, the place is nicely decorated, it gets busy si better to book in advance if you want to be sure to get a table. Best time to go is around 6:30pm or so. I can only recommend and would definitely go back when back to Tofo !

While many Tofo's restaurants are rather small and often full, if you go to Tofo Tofo you may be sure to find space, except when te band is playing ! But besides the space, you will meet good vibes, watch a fantastic sunset at the end of the day, drink delicious cocktails and taste mouth-watering dishes while listening to inviting music. If you meet the owner, she will make you feel at home and tell you everything you need to know about Tofo. It is not next to the beach, but not far from it and certainly far from the maddening crowd! A place to visit and revisit during your stay in Tofo!
