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.

Visited Black Coral twice during our stay. First night we found the drink service very slow, and it was quite late so not very busy. Food was pretty good, nothing to write home about but we enjoyed it. Went back a couple of nights later...for my daughters birthday and it was favulous - staff brought out the cake I had organised and all gathered around to sing her "happy birthday". The steak cooked on the hot stone was one of the best and most memorable meals I had in the two weeks we were in Fiji. Lovely to sit outside under the fairy lights.More

The service here was fantastic. We have two young girls and the setting was perfect for them, right beside a park and lots of space to run around. Kids buffet is nearby too so if you want to take advantage of that while having a...nice meal for adults then it’s perfect. The pork ribs, ten spice chicken are highly recommended. Something on the menu for everyone, and the best of the restaurants at PIR.More

We were recommended to dine here by other guests at Lomani and to be honest it was slightly underwhelming. The service was fantastic, waiting staff made this restaurant, food let it down. My husband had the seafood platter but most things were over cooked and...under seasoned. I had the steak which came on a hot stone, the steak was lovely but had a huge bit of fat on it that should have been removed before coming out as you can’t render it on the one of those stones. I struggled to cut it with the knife as no steak knife given. The vegetables were raw and couldn’t be cut either. Not the best eating experience but as I mentioned the staff were greatMore

We booked on Thursday for Saturday night dinner. Busy night with probably not enough staff. Only two of four guests at our table received their dinner! Somehow the order vanished for the other two. Service was well rectified by manager Justin when brought to his...attention more than an hour later - a free round of drinks and late dinner. Food was okay for the price. We had two other dinners outside the resort-at Dick‘s place at musket Cove; also at Lomani. Much better food and value for money, particularly at Lomani.More

This restuarant would be fantastic with just a few more staff and procedures. My booking was lost, luckily it was just myself so they could find space for me. The service was terrible. I had to keep calling out to staff to take orders. My...full meal arrived without my drinks although I asked for them many times. The food however was great. I had the tuna on their signature sizzling dish and the kokoda starter. Loved the maple sweet potato.More

Considering it has been open only for 4 weeks after Covid lockdown, the food, service and surroundings were great. A good selection to suit all tastes and a variation of choices from day to day.

Ate here once during our stay at PIR and it was fantastic, I wanted to go again but alas, it didn’t fit with what others wanted to do. Totally recommend the Kokoda (best I’ve ever eaten) and the garlic prawns. Delicious. Our waiter Miso was...excellent and very attentive!More

We dined with our family. The pork ribs are delicious and a must try. If you exchange you half board credit from the buffet you can eat any main meal from the restaurant so why don't have the full pork ribs and then you can...at least share some with envious family members :-)More

We ate here one night a a large family and were disappointed when compared with other options on the island. Food was good, but not always what one expected. One example was the cheese platter. A large plate with just the one cheddar cheese (in...spite of menu mentioning several cheeses). When queried the response was "You want more than one cheese?" with total incredulity. They took it away and it came back with a couple of slices of Camembert added. It is also more expensive than the other options, but it didn't live up to the difference. We decided not come back for the rest of our stay. We were disappointed and decided to go elsewhere for the, rest of our stay.More

Luckily we were staying at Lomani instead but if you love screaming kids, average food which luckily is cheap you have found the place. Favoured by the mid-range budgeters this is very hit and miss, mostly miss.

We went here twice, the scotch fillet was to die for. The outdoor setting is very pretty and it has a lovely children's playground that kept the kids occupied. On our last night the staff sang to us which was so lovely. Thoroughly enjoyed our...meals here.More

Black Coral is an amazing feast for the eyes and stomach. Exec Chef Amesh and his team work hard to deliver superb quality meals at an affordable price point. The staff are warm and very friendly and the musicians play songs you know and love...exceptionally. I highly recommend dinner at Black Coral.More

We loved eating here as it was a much nicer atmosphere than the buffet. I read that it was hard to get in to this restaurant so I emailed my requests prior to arrival and sure enough we were booked in as requested. Staff were...so friendly and seemed to enjoy chatting to us each night. As per other reviews the ribs are amazing. Food could be slow coming out but Fiji time no worry no hurry.More
