This newly renovated resort has a lovely open dining restaurant with a bar.  They have a woodfired pizza oven and offer a range of delicious local dishes and curries.  They also have a traditional Fijian Lovo dinner with entertainment and BBQ.  There are more international items on the menu to suit all tastes.  We recommend Ultiqa and eat here often. Ring to enquire about Fijian night.  Payment is only accepted by card – no cash.  We recommend ringing a day before to let them know you are coming for dinner and that you are from Villa Tinikatolu.

The Restaurant and Bar has various dining options from their airconditioned restaurant, the front decking or the back casual undercover garden or beer garden.  They often have themed nights such as buy-one-get-one-free pizzas every Friday, Mexican meals for “Taco Tuesday”, barbeque buffet nights on Sunday and traditional Fijian feasts. 

We eat here regularly in the back garden and love their fish dishes.

Open all day you and can also take away. As the supermarket is part of the site, it makes a very convenient place to shop for supplies.  All the organic produces from the Grace Road farms are sold here.
