Chefs, located right on Port Denarau Marina, is the best restaurant in town and it knows it (thus the smug white tablecloths and formal European decor). They jump for local VIPs (the bread and butter of their business), so don't be surprised if you are stonewalled for dinner because visiting diplomats or the Bank of Fiji have rented out the entire joint. It's worth coming however to chow down on excellent dishes with local flavors such as the filet of ulavi (reef fish) in herb and potato crust with grain mustard sauce and vegetable medley, or coral trout baked in banana leaf with lemon grass, lime, and coconut. Of course, wealthy Fijians like European standards that are difficult to find elsewhere like beef tartare and tiger prawns in parmesan, pesto, and red pepper roulie with homemade pasta and banana crepes. Lunch is more lighthearted, with the excellent lamb korma burger garnished with mint and gardens greens, or the marinated walu (a.k.a. butterfish), lime, and salad. But lunch or dinner, do not skip dessert: opt for the passion-fruit crème brûlée with honey wafer and fresh fruit or the Fiji coconut cream pie on pineapple coulis with vanilla ice cream.

Open daily 11 am to 10 pm.
