Nuku Restaurant & Bar

Casual open-air restaurant with five star cuisine

Welcome to Nuku Bar and Grill, our casual open-air restaurant with five star cuisine, overlooking our swim up pool bar with coconut trees framing the expansive ocean views.

Our menu is inspired by an infusion of our local Fijian cuisine and is influenced by the diversity that is now Fiji. We offer a local twist on international favourites. All our ingredients are hand-selected daily from the local markets or from our favourite organic farmers. Our experienced chefs can cater for specialty dietary requirements upon request including an extensive range of beautiful vegetarian options.

What You Can Expect at Nuku

Both exotic and homely options

Our signature dishes include Fiji’s traditional dish Kokoda, and international favourties such as chicken kara-age and fresh sushi. Other favourites, such as nasi goreng or spicy noodle salad to Indian staples like chicken curry and spicy dahl soup. We also have western staples like burgers with locally-sourced flavourful beef, fish tacos, juicy beef brisket and lamb shanks.

There’s a new special on the board each night. One night you might find a plantain filled with pate and poached with coconut milk on the menu, the next you might have locally-caught prawns, or another, a western twist on our favourite carb, dalo, turned into a gratin or made into gnocchi.

Our herbs, lettuce, and eggs are organic and come from farmers down the road who grow exclusively for us.

We also grow our own rosemary, sage, lemongrass and other herbs on site. Our sea food is responsibly sourced and caught from the surrounding region.

Breakfast, lunch and dinner

Something special every time

In the morning, alongside a breakfast staples like a full buffet, savoury omelettes and tasty breakfast burritos, you’ll find a plethora of locally-grown, in-season fruits, and a health shot made of freshly pressed turmeric.

For dinner, try some local delicacies. Rakiraki is known for growing the best fiddlehead fern in Fiji, and we serve it in our tian, a mousse layered with locally-smoked walu (also known as spanish mackerel).

Try it on it’s own, or as a snack on our house made cheese platter (we make a range of our own cheeses including halloumi, ricotta and lebna), or at breakfast freshly-churned into honey butter to spread toast.
