Restaurant Recommendation: Colo-i-Suva, Fiji

Colo i Suva restaurant Fiji

Colo-i-Suva is a rainforest preserve with a few hiking trails outside the capital city of Suva, Fiji. It houses an eco resort, and we visited their bar/restaurant for lunch.

This house-like space is inviting, and one side overlooks a small lake with plenty of visible fish. I recommend a table waterside to enjoy the view.

The menu features Fijian dishes, as well as international fare (a schnitzel was on the menu when we dined there).

Colo i Suva food

I always like ordering kokoda, the Fijian ceviche with coconut milk. The fish in the kokoda at Colo-i-Suva was more on the raw side, which I prefer for a juicier texture.

I recommend getting a tasting platter of traditional local food if they’re offering it. Mine came with a sample of fileted fish topped with small pineapple chunks. The pineapple was mixed with chili pepper, and I really liked the heat-and-sweet combo. For veg, there were spinach and eggplant dishes. The platter also had fried cassava and taro, plus a dessert of plantain in a simple syrup.
