“Average food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2013

Bread was nice in appearance albeit a bit stale. Food was better then the restaurants in the centre of port however did not live up to the fine dining genre. Nice ambience even though there were only three tables full on the night we chose. The food is not bad, just not memorable. More predictable hotel style. Lovely Fijian chef came to the table however I didn't have the heart to tell her about resting steaks or picky things like that. Produce used was of high quality.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2013 via mobile

We had a lovely dinner at V. There are a lot of restaurants to chose between at Denarau but V is in a different class to the rest. The venue is refined, The service attentive without being intrusive and the food is really good. The menu is well constructed with some really interesting choices. While reasonably expensive, It is much better value than a lot of the other restaurants around the Denarau area.

“Fine dining surrounds, average food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

We dined as a couple, coming over from the Hilton next door.

We had a reservation and were given a great table, tucked away in a private corner looking out throught the large glass windows at the gardens and water features. The restaurant is clearly meant for a fine dining experience, with linens galore, tables very well spaced, and a beautiful refined ambience.

Service was very professional and attentive without being intrusive.

Food was, to be honest, nothing spectacular. We had the tasting menu. Everything was done reasonably well but there was nothing inspired or exceptional. It was classical French style cooking, seemingly without any Fijian influence, so was really just food that you can get back home.

Wine list was good for Fiji, but as with another reviewer, they didn't have our original choice of champagne.

“Great attentive staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2013

We really enjoyed our meal at V while staying in Denarau. The food was very good but what really made the evening memorable was the extra lengths the staff went to to accomodate both ourselves and our guest. From the extra bread basket (excellent variety thank you) while we were waiting to the descrete attention while we were talking. Well worth a visit and in reality not much more expensive than the other resort alternatives.
