Tavanipupu’s Toutounire Restaurant and Bar offers a unique cuisine that is built on a staple of locally sourced seafood and organic vegetables which we source on a daily basis to ensure that our guests are able to enjoy tasty meals cooked with the freshest ingredients.
From yellow fin tuna to lobsters and squids to an array of freshly caught reef fish, our chefs serve palatable dishes that can be adapted to special dietary requirements and that blend together freshly caught seafood and ingredients with world class cooking practices and spices.
Once a week, we prepare a special dinner for guests using a traditional oven called a motu (lovo).
The generations old traditional cooking method uses stones heated by fire, on top of which are placed layers of delicacies such as seafood caught in the pristine waters of Tavanipupu, traditional cassava puddings, sweet potatoes (kumara) and other traditional root crops all tightly wrapped in a weave of banana leaves and roasted until they are uncovered as succulent morsels ready for consumption.
Every weekend we host our popular ‘Mongolian Night,’ treating guests to an all-you-can-eat buffet of seafood, meat and vegetables grilled in the world renowned Mongolian style.
The interactive dining experience allows guests to pick their choice of thinly sliced raw meats and fresh seafood onto which they add their choice of fresh vegetables, herbs, spices and sauces before handing their raw creations to our grillers to turn into a savoury meal served with red and white wines or beverages of their choice.
The Marau Sound area where Tavanipupu Island is located has a rich cultural heritage made up of a unique blend of the Are’Are culture which made its way over to Guadalcanal Island generations ago by settlers from neighbouring Malaita Island and traditions of the Guadalcanal people.
On special dinner occasions, guests get to experience this rich culture through live performances from pan-pipers and traditional dances performed by members of the resort’s surrounding communities.
This truly Solomon Islands experience is highly recommended for guests.

At the Island Resort, privacy is one of our fortes so we go out of our way to ensure that guests are able to spend whatever precious time they have together on the island uninterrupted – if it’s romance and privacy you want, romance and privacy you will get.
Imagine sitting on top of a jetty, listening to the sound of waves as they gently roll onto the shoreline of a beautiful tropical island. Then imagine that you are sitting on an intimately laid out table for two – the décor intricately arranged, the linen neatly laid out.
Your loved one sits across the candlelit lit divide, staring affectionately into your eyes.
You see the flickering of fire torches as they cast dancing shadows on the dimly lit pier and stemware on the table, beside which there is a private butler at the ready to attend to your every need. Then imagine no more for this is a real night at Tavanipupu Island Resort.
