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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Very good food and wonderful staffs. I sit next to the waters, and stupidly dropped my iPhone into the shallow waters, and thanks to the restaurant security guy, he went in the waters, although shallow, to pick my iPhone back. It still worked and hence...I can write this review! Thanks Salis!More

Tui is the best! Best Fijian food I have ever had!! Kovu that he recommended was beautifully presented and tasty! Complete with a fresh coconut and local beer. We also had the chicken curry which we have been looking out for in our stay in...Denarau. I wish the hotels would make more Fijian curry. Faafetai lava! We will be back!More

I came for dinner tonight with my husband and baby. We arrived early for dinner as my baby needed to go to bed so we asked the waitress to order us whatever she recommended and asked for it all to be brought out as quick...as possible due to our child needing to go to sleep. Needless to say we waited an hour and a half only for our garlic bread and chips to arrive while other tables around us got given their food. Our baby had enough and had totally lost patience, we ended up needing to cancel our whole dinner + entree order. We were charged $30 to sit and wait for nothing, we left hungry with a cranky child and now we are going to bed without dinner. This wasn’t “Fiji time” it was a joke. Totally inconsiderate and upsetting.More

We arrived to Fiji first thing in the morning and while we were waiting for our room to be available at the Radisson, we decided to take a taxi to the port for lunch. While visiting Fiji, you’ll discover that taxi drivers are very friendly...and talkative, so I asked him for a place to eat good, authentic Fijian food. Right away, he answered to go to Nandina. When we got there, the restaurant had a perfect location, right at the Marina, but it was quiet. Regardless, we decided to try it. We ordered a Vonu beer and a glass of Australian wine. For food, we asked our waiter for recommendations and she told us to start with a Kokoda and a Cassava. They were both under starters, so it was a good way to introduce us to the Fijian cuisine. Both dishes were very good and fresh. Not big, because they were starters, but super tasty. I highly recommend this place if you want to try authentic Fijian food. Bula Vinaka!More

We wanted to enjoy Fijian cuisine on our last night in Fiji. So we sought out Nadinas, a gem at Denerau surrounded by other food options. If you love good food and are a foodie wanting to savour the uniqueness of this cuisine this is...a must do. For us this was an opportunity to try dishes we had not seen available anywhere else in two weeks in Fiji such as the rou rou. Nadinas is a Fijian food champion as it puts these food treasures on the map. We loved the food and the hospitality of this place, and our last night chats with the Nadinas team, from different parts of Fiji. Bula vinaka.More

The food was fantastic. I had the traditional style mud crab which was traditionally messy but well worth the mess. The wonderful staff kept me hydrated during the meal. I could not recommend highly enough

My Dad and I wanted to experience an authentic Fijian meal. On the recommendation of our waiter, I selected the Walo (Spanish Mackerel) and my Dad the Pork Belly. I tried the local 'potato' options - taro and cassava. The meal was delicious, the local...music great and the views even better. My dad tried the local beer - Vonu - which he enjoyed. Thanks again.More

Somewhat underwhelming and disappointing. Service was slow. Lobster was outrageously over priced for what you got. Chicken curry on the dry side. Prawn dish that was ordered was not what was served up. But to be fair we weren’t charged for this. Hard to recommend...sadly.More

We had the best night at Nadina Restaurant, celebrating my husband's birthday and enjoying exquisite authentic cuisine. The cassava and dalo chips were yummy-- so glad we tried them instead of boring garlic bread. And the kovu was absolutely delicious. Full of flavour. The service...was excellent too. All in, two thumbs up and highly recommended.More

We found the food approachable and prepared in Fijian style of foods which we missed to some extent at the resort we were staying at.

When we were there (February), lobster was about Fijian Dollar $135/pc depending on its weight. But they were not live ones. Mud crab was Fijian Dollar $88/pc.
