Gourmet Cuisine – Fiji Islands
Wherever you choose to dine, Matangi’s talented chef and kitchen staff will tempt your taste buds with an array of fresh fish and seafood caught by local fishermen, imported meats, salads, locally grown vegetables, tropical fruit from surrounding gardens, freshly baked breads and sumptuous desserts.
The traditional Fijian Lali drum announces the meal service (just in case you are too relaxed or too busy to notice). Soon you will become accustomed to the timing of your meals at the resort not by your watch, but to the beat of a drum.
Matangi’s cuisine is largely influenced by tropical surroundings, Fijian heritage and the unique flavours of the South Pacific.
Meals are served in the magnificent “Vale-Ni-Kana” Dining Room located only metres from a pristine white sand beach. While you dine, enjoy 270-degree views of the ocean and Matangi’s exquisitely landscaped tropical gardens.
Daily menus are planned using the finest and freshest ingredients available. Special dietary needs are happily arranged.
A large selection of world-class Australian and New Zealand wines and French Champagnes are available to complement your meals. Tropical inspired cocktails, rums, beer and an extensive selection of fine spirits from around the world are also available.

Lunch 12:00 pm – 2:00 pm
