Fine Dining on the Coral Coast
It’s true that the dining experiences in Fiji are a lot more casual than elsewhere in the world. Think “island-style” with your flip-flops and your wet hair. However, if you are looking for somewhere to celebrate a special occasion or just to treat yourself and your loved ones, then the most choice you’ll get for fine dining in Fiji is on the stunning Coral Coast. The southern coast of Viti Levu, Fiji’s main island, is brimming with five-star resorts offering speciality-dining options for those special moments. Check out your options in this list of fine dining restaurants on the Coral Coast.
