Excellent restaurant.
The food is awesome and the view on the ocean incredible.
There is also a small shop where you can buy things.

“Not a Friendly Place With Too Many Rules”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2014

When you are ready to enter the restaurant, you are greeted by the first rule that you should take your shoes off before entering. Okay, this is the Fiji way. The next sign gives you the "Feeding Times". We did not take this sign in and went onto the porch where the food is served and received an unfriendly reception as we did not observe rule number two: feeding times. Rule number three, no cell phones or computers, etc. are allowed. And the list goes on. We saw the owner, Rona (sp?), talk to a staff member in a very condescending manner. And she was not at all very friendly toward us. Perhaps she is friendly to you only if you are staying there. The Greek salads were good but what we received for a steak dinner for the price did not make it a good value/choice. So much that makes a good restaurant is the service of which this is definitely lacking. If Matei had more dining choices, this would of been a one time stop for us. We are so thankful that the Makaira Resort where we stayed served great dinners nightly. If you are planning on staying in Matei, we recommend Makaira resort for not only the great service and beautiful views, but with only one or two restaurants to chose from, John's stellar cooking at Makaira was a much-welcomed relief.

“Best Burger in Fiji”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2014

A few friends of mine recommend this place to me a while back and I was finally able to make the trip over to Taveuni. It was by far the best burger I've had in Fiji! We were seated out on a balcony overlooking a white sandy beach with a nice ocean breeze, which definitely added to the burger experience. The staff was very friendly and professional as well. Coconut Grove is a must stop place for lunch if you visit Taveuni!

“Breakfast and beyond!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2014

We loved everything, really. We especially loved the shakes and homemade breads at breakfast, and my husband loved the lamb chops. Samosas are yummy!
