“Not worth your time or your hard earnt $$$$”
Reviewed May 5, 2013

We had the seafood platter and was disappointed when it came out as a cold seafood salad, with a curry mussel dish, served with boiled sweet potato and fresh seaweed???? Neither of us could finish it as it was revolting.
Kids fish and chips, at least the chips were nice. The aioli dressing was the nicest I've ever had.

The wahu fish was overlooked and like chewing on my work boot.
Terrible food
Long wait for service

Sunday night band was good though.....

“View and drink great, food not so”
Reviewed April 5, 2013

Popped in for lunch while staying next door at First Landing.

Perched above the entrance to the Vuda Pt Marina, the open air location gives great views back to Denarau, across Nadi Bay and out to the Mamanuca's. A warm and muggy day, the breeze when we visited was welcomed.

Served promptly, our Long Island Iced teas where great and only a short wait until the food came out. Nothing to rave about, the fish was barely warm and had that distinctive cooked from frozen taste. A shame as a better dining experience would see us eating there more often, rather than just having a drink when we visit next.

“Bit pricey and not quite there”
Reviewed January 16, 2013

Toasted cheese sandwich came out still grated and for the price expected a bit more. The breakfast was ok but for the price was a bit small. Great coffee! Service was polite and attentive.

“A great place to eat”
Reviewed August 11, 2012

The Sunset Bar and Restaurant and this, the Boatshed restaurant, are in separate buiildings, but not far apart. However they share the same menu.

Generally at lunchtime people tend to eat at the Sunset Bar which we did. However, on one occasion when it was windy we ate at the Boatshed. It is more sheltered but does not have the same views. It has a more formal feel - probably better at night. But we did not venture there in the dark.

I have done an extensive review of the food at the Sunset Bar and Restaurant and the comments I made apply equally to this adjoining restaurant.

Highly recommended whichever restaurant you visit.
