Fijian food is fresh and vibrant, and makes good use of all that the land and the sea have to offer. Modern Fijian fare is a delectable blend of traditional dishes, and influences from Indian foods and spices.

Enjoy a range of just-caught seafood, in particular the signature dish kokoda, raw fish marinated in coconut cream, lime, onions and tomatoes. Another must-try is lovo food: translating to ‘feast cooked in the earth’, the lovo process sees heated rocks placed in a shallow pit which is then used to bake food. Similar to the New Zealand hangi, food wrapped in leaves is added and covered until the food is cooked, taking on a delicious smokey flavour. Try these foods alongside staple accompaniments including sweet potato, taro and cassava.

Of course, no visit would be complete without sampling the national drink kava (or yaqona), made from the roots of the Kava plant. The order of serving is dictated by status of those present
