when you convert from Fiji dollars you will appreciate how our high dollar makes Fiji good value.

And it depends where you eat. Some "chain" resort restaurants can be quite expensive. But restaurants away from resorts sometimes have better food and good prices

Where are you going in Fiji?

Purchasing water will be more expensive, if you purchase it at a resort than at a market.

See you posted on the Taveuni Forum. Are you considering a resort on the island? If so, would have your driver stop on one of markets on the island on the way to your resort instead of purchasing water at duty free or one of the markets in Nadi. Luggage weight with Pacific Sun is limited and strictly adhered to. You could end up paying extra baggage fees, if you are overweight.

Taveuni is remote and some resorts are isolated. Nothing like the the resorts at Denarau with lots of restaurant choices. Resorts offer meal plans. There may or not be be restaurants depending on where you are staying. Recommend contacting resorts you are interested in for tour/meal prices and dining options.

Drinks at resorts can be pricey. For having drinks in our bure/room we take the amount alcohol allowed by customs with us in our checked luggage or purchase it at duty free at the airport in Nadi. Helps keep the price down.

Most of the places in Fiji aren't too bad for food prices. If you are in a more secluded place then you will obviously pay more for nicer food. The supermarkets can be quite expensive depending on what you want to buy, if you want foods that you are used to like oreos etc then you will pay more. But their own equivalent it normally just as good!

Buying alcohol is probably the worst to be fair! A normal bottle of malibu is around $170, so expensive!

If you plan on going to Nadi Town, take a trip to Nadi Farmers club, they have really reasonable food, and very yummy! There is also a chinese restaurant across the road which is also very good!

Cannot wait to go back for my second time in 74 days!!!! :-)
