Founded by a school chum of mine, Tiko Eastgate, Tiko’s Foating Restaurant is moored in Suva Harbour. It now has new owners and consistently provides good local and international cuisine. Music is often provided by Jese Mucunabitu. Locals like to take out-of-town guests to this floating restaurant, which years ago served as a cruise ship with Blue Lagoon Cruises. One hopes they don’t lean to seasickness, for the old craft does tend to roll a bit when freighters kick up a wake going in and out of the harbor. Your best bets are the nightly seafood specials, such as walu (Spanish mackerel) and pakapaka(snapper). The fish is fresh, the service is attentive, and Jesse Mucunabitu, a terrific musician-singer, usually performs at dinner — all of which makes for a pleasant night out.

    Heard about Tiko’s restaurant back in Australia.
    Tried to find an email address to make a booking but couldn’t find one.
    Would love to hear from the restaurant re bookings.

    We enjoyed the best time together last night at Tiko’s Floating Restaurant on the Suva Harbour in fabulous Fiji! The atmosphere was brilliant, the food equally so, the old Queen outdid herself resplendent as she was in polished timber and gleaming brass, and the staff were most attentive and helpful. And the prices were reasonable for such a feast. Thank you for a wonderful night to remember forever Tiko’s!!!
