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.

Staffs are really stressed, due to lots of customers. Sometimes you have to wait long for the meal, as there is no enough staff. The meals are average.

Fantastic food and great spot overlooking the water. The staff were so friendly and welcoming and ther was great live music! It was my go-to spot every evening for 4 days while I stayed at the Hilton. Loved this place and can't wait to return.

How can I begin? This restaurant alone was the highlight of my trip. You are treated by the staff as though they have known you forever. The restaurant is kept spotless, the cuisine is just delicious, and the presentation is excellent. Mel, Sikeli, Morna, Luisa,...Savana, Rusila, and most importantly COOLIOOOO are excellent staff members; words cannot describe how appreciative we are to have them serve and look after us! Everything about our breakfast experience was so intimate and wonderful. I heartily urge everyone to bring their children here for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. They will always remember their time spent here. The whole staff gathered together to sing us a farewell song at the conclusion of our stay. The way they valued our presence so much affected and amazed us. These are moments I've only seen in movies, and now I got to experience them firsthand. Thank you all so muchMore

We stayed at the Hilton and dined here with our toddler. The staff at Nuku are fantastic and should be commended for their hospitality and service. From the moment you arrive to the time you leave, you are greeted with a Bula and smiles. They...are quick to take orders and check in on how your meal has been going. They were absolutely great with our toddler by giving hi-5’s and playing little games with her. The breakfast menu is amazing and has so much variety for adults, children and those with food intolerances. I literally had a little bit of everything to be honest and each item was delicious and filling. The barista made coffee was also relatively good considering I am picky when it comes to coffee. The dinner menu is outstanding with there being something for all to choose from. Don’t even get me started on the drinks menu, it’s extensive and has so much variety. Being pregnant, I was unable to drink alcohol however the mocktail menu was great and allowed me to enjoy non alcoholic drinks with my dinner. Our favorite dinner menu from the buffet has to be the Taste of Fiji. The food had Fijian food with a twist. It tasted absolutely amazing and we couldn’t get enough of the various flavours 🤤 even our toddler enjoyed this buffet selection. The buffet does cost $89.00 FJD per person which is pricey if doing this every single night, especially if you are not big eaters. Otherwise you can just just do the dine in menu option which has other meals at various prices. They had traditional Fijian dancing as entertainment which was amazing. Our toddler loved the traditional dancing and was so excited to join in at the end. They also had a singer and musician play for entertainment which was great. Overall the food here is of good quality and it has lots of great flavours. I would highly recommend dining here whether it’s breakfast, lunch, the buffet or dinner menu.More

The breakfast here is amazing! We ate here for five days straight and there was always enough variety that we could try new foods each day, while still enjoying our favourites everyday as well. The staff are lovely, with warm greetings (and plenty of 'hellos'...and high fives to my 19 month old daughter who adored them all) and speedy service. Special thanks to Iki in the kitchen for looking after our daughter's requests.More

First time in nuku. Love the f&b staffs. Very well organized and friendly smiles. I wish I could say the same about the dinner I had. Mash potatoes was lovely but the portion size was way too big. Lamb was undercooked but well seasoned. Special...mention to LAISA amazing service and a great leader. Overall food was disappointing for the price I paid but the service was just amazing.More

Great for breakfast - usual fair but superb fruit selection (if you’re starved of passion fruit where you come from, lock in!). Dinner is a great place for views and dusk for sundowners, but don’t sit too close to the live band. The steak looked...fantastic as it came sizzling in its pan past our table…sadly I didn’t order it and all 4 of us were left a little underwhelmed by the evening food.More

I had the pleasure of celebrating our 4th year wedding anniversary with my husband and family at this beautiful restaurant and resort. Firstly, the ambiance is just superb, the Staff are even beyond words that could describe how friendly and attentive they were. From the...Entrance we we're greeted by the Supervisor on shift Miss Leba and her friendly team Marsha,Coolie,Elenani,Morna,Josefa and Mary. They made sure we were taken care of. The overall experience was very special and pampered. We were grateful the Food and Beverage Manager, Tabua, came by our table to check on us and asked if everything was ok or if we needed anything else. Food in General is exquisite, that indulges your sensations and was well prepared by Chef Para and his Team. To sum things up, My husband is a very cautious person when planning for a special occasion and Nuku Restaurant exceeds by far what he expected which he really surprised me for such a night. Vinaka Vakalevu Nuku Team. You all made our night a memorable one. We'll be back for sure.More

Staff is amazing. They are extremely nice and go out of their way to make sure you're happy. I came here everyday of my vacation for breakfast and a few times for lunch/happy hour. I have a special diet and they accommodated me every time....They see hundreds of people a day and yet remember my name. It's a big restaurant but feels like my neighborhood pub with an amazing view. Highly recommend.More

This was the first time for mum and I to come to Fiji not knowing a lot about Hilton. Our package included daily breakfast at Nuku and did not disappoint. The food that was served was lovely and the service of the staff was even...better. Special thanks to Lite and Berty for always greeting us with big smiles and making us feel welcomed. They both ensured that we felt at home every breakfast. We hope to visit again but next time with the rest of the family. Thankyou Nuku restaurantMore

Only if u book ahead and ask them to keep kids away. I'd say no go to the other resturant they have on the beach. Children don't go there is better for a special occasion
