My husband and I stopped into Cardo's for a quick bite to eat. The menu was quite extensive, but as we only wanted something quick and light to eat we both ordered the pork rolls. They were possibly the best pork rolls we have ever eaten. The pork was tender, the crackling was just right and the sauce was divine. The staff were very friendly and even offered to take a photo of us. The setting was lovely, the prices were very reasonable and we will definitely be back.

As if sitting on the waters edge on a balmy night in the middle of June watching the yachts bobbing on their moorings wasn't enough for a positive review, the good choices and value for money options at Cardos soon had my family demanding we return time and again. Considered more rustic than fine dining, we certainly had more than enough oportunity to see many dishes presented to our table from many sections of the menu. The Asian section had a certain western flair but were both cheery and filling. Steak was always perfectly cooked with just enough accompaniments and inexpensive sides available. Local beer, soft drinks and cocktails are reasonable but wine drinkers may be dissapointed at the selection and price per glass of ordinary Australian wines. The lunch menu is limited but for as little as $10 FJD for the fish and chips, it is a value lunch with enough to keep every family member satisfied. Local live music starts at Cardo's araound 7.00pm and is a fabulous touch to a very pleasant dining experience. Get there early for a water front table or book one in advance it's well worth it.

Missing NZ steak we ordered one here. It was the best I think I have ever had. The wait staff so friendly and the live music was so good. These guys know how to look after you.

Was a favourite of ours when in Denarau, not any more. Chaos describes our experience. We "dined" there last week 24.06.14 and lost all confidence in this venue.
Error after error made it almost laughable. We seated ourselves after several floor staff ignored us. Waited at our table for ten minutes for a menu, waited another ten to place a drink order. Drink order was wrong on arrival. 35 minutes after ordering our meals i enquired where our entree was as the waitress was on her way to our table with our mains. The wine list we asked for never arrived, The meals were ordinary including the rock hard potato like vegetable on mine accompanying my dry and overcooked steak. The Mahi Mahi was also overcooked and as a result very dry.Three ladies dining at the table beside us in the dining area started smoking during our meal. The staff refused to move them to the smoking area. They could not care less, even though we had our 6 year pld with us. Thanks team for a smoky dinner, a real blast from the past !! Disgusting!!
Very difficult to get wait staff to place another drink order or clear our table. They did not have any clear direction or organisation despite the vast number of them. After our plates were finally cleared, other wait staff kept coming to our cleared table with new meals asking if we ordered it. This happened four times in 20 minutes as we finished our drinks. We had bets on how many times they could stuff up the service. It was so bad it was funny. The Three Stooges could not have been any funnier.
As much as i hate to say it, give "Chaos Cardos" a big miss, try Yandina or Lu Lu's unless you want the comedy show we endured.

Firstly what a fabulous location right on the water overlooking the port, watching the boats come & go. Being 3 of us we ordered a cooked seafood platter which we shared. The platter was a decent size & more than enough for the 3 of us. The fish for all 3 of us was a stand out. I personally loved the Kokoda raw fish salad. The only small negative was the garlic bread we needed to remind the waitress that we hadnt received it, we were going to cancel & give it a miss but so glad we didnt. While it neither looked or tasted anything like garlic bread it was the best for dipping into one of the sauces that came with the platter it was amazing!
I would absolutely recommend Cardo`s with free wifi & a beautiful location whats not to love?
