As a regular visitor to Alotau it has been a long time since I thought about dining at the Masurina Lodge . Not any more .

Enter through a fairly innocuous door to the Dining Room and a new world opened up . A beautiful well designed restaurant appeared . A superb little venue with two teppanyaki tables on the side , a well provisioned buffet , with crabs and craytails , and soft serve ice cream and the ubiquitous tagalog lemon iced tea for only $20.00 . A philipino chef keeps the place ticking over from a modern well equipped kitchen downstairs which has to be one of the best in the South Pacific .

Jeff's Bar and Grill is definitely on the agenda for future visits . And a great spot to drop in for breakfast or lunch for all those visitors off the cruise ships where the friendly staff will make you feel right at home . And if you want to delve deeper they even host local cooking classes for visitors off the regular cruise ships .

The buffet was amazing , and I am told the steaks are just as good . Drop into this little jewel in Alotau . Food is great , staff are wonderful and the prices are more than reasonable .

A fun place to hang with friends and family. The drinks are reasonably priced, the karaoke list is exhaustive and the staff will go the extra mile to get you home at he end of the night. Highly recommend.

If you are intending to visit Papua New Guinea than you must include Alotau in your itinerary because Alotau gives you the best of two worlds - the westernized and the cultural. AND it is the cultural you want to experience. We visited Alotau on the Princess Cruises Sea Princess on 24 February and went on an organized tour to the "Kenu and Kundu Festival" viewing the local canoe races, cultural displays, and musical offerings. (Kenu means canoe.) The canoes can hold up to 24 rowers and a captain steering the canoe from the rear. Take a camera and tele lens with you because you will want to take many close up photographs! Cultural dances are performed by many tribes living around Milne Bay. They are cultural dances and the performers DO NOT wear brasseries (Bras) so if you are somewhat shy - don't look! Well, why would you want to go to cultural performances if you do not want to look??? Anyway, I took about 250 photographs of the various displays and performers and am glad I can give my friends an idea of what the Papua New Guinea Milne Bay offers. Yes, after having spent some 4 hours at the festival we did have a beer at Alotau's best bar and really enjoyed it. BUT we were glad to have the beer after the festival instead of before! Yes entrance to the festival cost about AUD56 per person but it is worth every cent. Don't forget to take a photo of people chewing Betel nut! That is what causes the teeth to go red! There is, however, a downside to betel nuts. Many locals dip it in to lime which causes a chemical reaction and gives them a high. Similar to marijuana and the like. Don't try the stuff - it doesn't do westerners any good! I hope you enjoy Alotau as much as we did. AND TAKE YOUR CAMERA wherever you go - please...
