“Great location, very good food”
Reviewed May 26, 2013 via mobile

My wife and I dined here during our stay in Fiji. The Restaurant sits around the pool and on the beach and we had a great spot on the sand. Cooled by a light sea breeze, we enjoyed seafood dumplings followed by crab tortellini and bugs steamed in ginger and chilli. The food was very good and whilst not cheap the food and ambience were worth the price. We would recommend this for a romantic or special dinner whilst relaxing in Fiji.

“Not so good given the location”
Reviewed May 17, 2013

We had a very simple fish meal but not impressed. Very costly. Food was okay but a little tasteless. Service was okay but one felt that you had to be on your way once you had eaten - ie table cleared far too quickly and no warmth in staff.

Bula 255100PaulaI,
Thank you for taking the time to review us. We appreciate our guest's feedback and always discuss with our staff. We offer 3 different ways of serving our fresh fish and the "simple" option is indeed that. It is for the benefit of those that prefer the flavour of the fish itself to be predominant. I hope you will dine with us again next time you are in Fiji.

Was a lovely meal, we thoroughly enjoyed it and would go back if ever back in Fiji. The prices were totally acceptable and myself and my partner both left very satisfied.

“Has become very expensive”
Reviewed May 5, 2013

We loved this restaurant in 2012 because kids were spoiled with great food at great prices and mum and dad got a great setting and menu. But in 2013 peak season, kids' portions were small (aimed at under 5s i reckon) and pricing doubled. What annoyed me the most was that as we left the restaurant, we noticed the 2 course deal Monday-Wednesday (entree main or main dessert for FJD90) that we should have been offered by the waiters in case we hadn't seen the sign. Perhaps before/after telling us the specials? For the same food, we did entree/main, we paid FJD150 each. Not happy. That said, food was good, so we went again a few days later.

Bula HellasHellas,
Thank you for your review. We appreciate hearing feedback from our guests and always review with our staff. I'm glad that you enjoyed the food at Flying Fish Fiji. To offer the quality of food we do, we source a lot of ingredients such as meat, prawns and other specialty items not available in Fiji from the best suppliers in Australia and therefore subject to import taxes.
Our chef also hails from Australia and has worked in some of the best restaurants as is evident from the quality of our food. We are offering a different experience to the normal Fijian restaurant and as a result, our prices reflect this.
While prices do sometimes increase do to rising costs from suppliers & exchange rates, they certainly have not doubled. Our 'special 2 course' menu does not offer the more expensive menu options which you may have ordered for your meal. Your disappointment in not being verbalised the special menu as you had not seen the sign at the front desk is understandable and this has been discussed with our floor staff. It is certainly not our intention and we are in the process of acquiring new menu folders for specials so as to avoid this.
Thank you for taking the time to let us know of your experience and we hope to see you again
