We had a seafood platter which was amazing!! Highly recommend the civeche. Stunning location and great view. Staff are super super friendly, we had our 6 month old with us in a stroller and once our food arrived the took him for a spin around the restaurant while hubby and I enjoyed our food and our bubs fell asleep!!!

We had lunch here while waiting for the ferry to the islands. Honestly it was expensive and not that great. The service was friendly and generally good but I wouldnt rush back.

It was a great experience to try the native Fijian food. The grilled fish of the day and the grilled lobster, with Fiji mornay sauce, were excellent. The banana pudding was good but didn't like the little cake it came with. Beautiful setting and attentive service. Nice to have a ocean view and live music.

This restaurant is a nice introduction to Fijian cuisine although we find service slow and the food itself unimpressive (milder than the real thing) and overpriced (same price tag as 4-star hotel restaurants). If you crave authentic Fijian food, visit small villages or outer islands (e.g. Ovalau) where locals use real coconut cream, not the watered down version here. The... More

We went for dinner , last evening on our two weeks stay in Fiji archipelago and enjoyed it much . Typical Fijian seafood and other dishes are reasonable priced for Fiji standards . Nice hospitality . Absolutely no regret !

We sampled a number of restaurants at Port Denarau and we found Nadina to offer the most authentic and delicious Fijian food. It's discreetly tucked away in the corner of the complex and we accidentally stumbled across it. It offers sea views which we found complements the food on offer. The staff are very welcoming and friendly and the chef... More

I will say that my wife liked it better than I did. It was completely okay, but I think they could have done a lot more with the food as presented. We got a seafood platter. The octopus was quite good. Everything else, including the lobster didn't really rise to the occasion Service was so-so. Kind of disengaged. And also... More
