At Matangi Private Island Resort our cuisine is largely influenced by our tropical surroundings, Fijian heritage and the unique flavours of the South Pacific. Every effort is made by our team of local chefs to blend tropical Fijian foods including tapioca, taro, breadfruit, Fijian spinach, coconut, fresh fish, and seafood. A traditional Fijian feast called a ‘Lovo’ where food is cooked underground in a earth-oven is offered once a week, weather permitting.
Our gourmet dining combines 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. Our daily menus are planned using the finest and freshest ingredients available. Vegetarian options are offered in our daily menu, and special dietary needs are happily catered to.
To complement our Fiji gourmet dining, a large selection of world-class Australian and New Zealand wines and French Champagnes are available. Our beverage list also includes tropical inspired cocktails, rums, beer and an extensive selection of fine spirits from around the world.
