The Legend The early 1800’s witnessed the arrival of Espero Cardo and his herd of some of the world’s finest beef cattle to Fiji. Originally bound for Australia, this shipment of prized animals from the pampas of Argentina was pirated in the Koro Sea by war canoeists of the Tavuteke Clan. The services of stockman Cardo were necessary and so his life and cattle were spared. The Fijian grasslands proved ideally nutritional for raising the perfect beef beast. Now, four generations later, the perfect steak is available in Fiji’s best little steakhouse of the pacific. --- Full Menu all day dinning, NZ steaks, Burgers, Kids Meals, Pizzas, Local seafood, in house desserts, daily specials, live local

Was looking forward to a nice grilled chicken salad to find the salad was very confused with raw long beans, soggy blue beans and a mango chutney thrown into it😭😭 Others had a burger .. in over toasted buns and fries which were re-fried😝

Had breakfast and dinner here today. Both were excellent. Of special mention would have to be the lemon grass creme brûlée. It was divine. Thoroughly recommend this restaurant. The staff are friendly too and prices moderate.
