For our last night at The Warwick Fiji we decided to treat ourselves and booked a night at their premiere seafood restaurant, The Wicked Walu, famous locally for both its water views and exceptional food.

The Wicked Walu

As you can see from the picture above, The Wicked Walu sits on its own private island, connected to the resort by a short causeway, which gives the restaurant 360 degree water views of the water.

Ordering from the menu was tough, as there are a number of good choices, including a tempting chilli ginger mud crab, the beef and two prawn, and a dish called the Fijian Delight, which included crab mash, mussels, prawns and lobster tail.
With too much to choose from we played it safe and ordered the Seafood Platter for two, which was quite reasonably priced for what was on offer.

While we waited we watched the talented staff singing goodbye to a table of guests, then walked out to the open deck area to look at the water.

The sea surrounding the island is teeming with life, no doubt attracted by the enticing smells. We spent some time on the outside deck watching the myriads of fish swim by, which even included small black tip reef shards and a pair of coral sea snakes!

We are big fans of seafood platters, and know a good one when we come across it. The Wicked Walu platter included the local specialty Kokoda, oysters, mussels, scallops, fish of the day, seared tuna and a whole lobster.

Needless to say it tasted as good as it looks, and although we were near starving from a day of kayaking and snorkeling, we struggled to get through it. So far it is the best meal and overall eating experience I have had in Fiji.

At the end of the meal we went back out to the deck to get some fresh air and noticed a local sea snake trying to gain entry into the kitchen. This was concerning to me, as I believe sea snakes should stay in the sea and not wander into five star restaurants, but the professional staff handled the intruder with ease, showing it back into the ocean.

Overall the experience at The Wicked Walu was unique and a highlight of our trip to Fiji. I would highly recommend eating here to anyone visiting the Coral Coast area, you will not be disappointed.
