Best places to dine out in Fiji

Wananavu Beach Resort Restaurant

Lovo
Fire for the lovo

Easy walking or driving distance from Starfish Blue, Wananavu offers breakfast, lunch and dinner. Eat inside or open air deck, the Wananavu singers serenade nightly with local and well-known songs accompanied by a ukulele. Check with the resort, but every week, mostly on a Thursday, they offer a lovo (traditional feast) and meke (traditional dance.) A must see. Nightly they offer a sample from the kava bowl. Moderately expensive
