Why Warwick Fiji Wicked Walu Restaurant Makes the Perfect Sunset Backdrop 


With beautiful architecture, a mouthwatering menu, stunning sunsets and friendly staff, Wicked Walu Restaurant is perfect for a romantic dinner or a night out with friends. 

Fiji’s diverse culinary scene has influences from Indian, Chinese and Pacific Islander cuisines with fresh seafood, tropical fruits and organic produce in abundance. These ingredients provide the base for delicious and healthy meals, while friendly Fijian hospitality adds to the overall dining experience.

Located on its own private island at the luxurious Warwick Fiji, the adults-only Wicked Walu is a true gourmet gem in the heart of the South Pacific. Here’s why the Wicked Walu makes the perfect sunset backdrop for a decadent dining experience in Fiji.

The traditional ambience

The Wicked Walu features stunning architecture and decor that instantly takes you back to the days of Fiji’s rich cultural past. The open-sided restaurant offers superb views of the surrounding ocean and resembles a traditional Fijian bure – a thatched roof cottage – with high ceilings and short, stone walls. The natural sand floors add to the rustic ambience, and tiered sections of the dining space are separated by stone-sided steps. The feeling of sand between your toes as you indulge in the restaurant’s fine cuisine is an experience you’ll never forget. 

The interior is tastefully decorated with amazing carved ceiling panels, dark wooden furniture with comfortable cushioning, real clamshell sconce lighting and traditional Fijian artwork and sculptures, creating a warm and welcoming atmosphere that perfectly complements the stunning ocean views. The outdoor seating area places you right on the cusp of the island overlooking the waves, the perfect position to enjoy the sea breeze, phenomenal ocean views and sunlight, sunset or starlight above.

The mouthwatering food

The menu at the Wicked Walu Restaurant is equally impressive, boasting a range of delicious seafood dishes that showcase the best of Fiji's fresh and flavourful ingredients. Highlights include the huge seafood platters, which feature a selection of fresh lobster, prawns, oysters, shellfish, and local fish. For an authentic epicurean experience, try the Fijian kokoda: a traditional, mouthwatering ceviche-style dish made with fresh raw fish marinated in coconut milk and lime juice. You’ll also enjoy a huge range of other dishes, from chargrilled steaks to sides and delectable desserts. 

To complement the delicious food, the restaurant offers a wide range of drinks, including creative cocktails, fine wines and spirits, and cold beers. You can also enjoy a range of non-alcoholic beverages, including freshly squeezed juices and mocktails.

The spectacular surroundings

The restaurant's location on its own private island also adds to its traditional Fijian charm. Take a short stroll across a stone isthmus from the Warwick Fiji resort to reach the Wicked Walu, where you’ll be greeted by friendly staff and the sound of gentle waves lapping against the shore. The sandy island is dotted with tall, swaying palms and surrounded by crystal-clear waters full of colourful coral reefs. After your meal, stroll along the shoreline and see if you can spot fish or the small reef sharks that are frequently seen in the shallows.

The warm smiles

The team at the Wicked Walu Restaurant is known for their friendly and attentive service. From the moment you arrive, you’ll be greeted with a warm Fijian welcome and made to feel right at home. The staff are knowledgeable about the menu and drinks and are always happy to provide recommendations or answer any questions you may have about your meal. If you have specific dietary requirements, the staff are more than happy to cater to your needs. 

The spectacular sunsets

Of course, the true highlight of dining at the Wicked Walu is the stunning sunset views. As the sun begins to dip below the horizon, the sky turns a fiery shade of orange and pink, casting a warm glow over the ocean. There’s nothing like enjoying some delicious food with someone special while basking in the glow of a tropical sunset. Once the night descends, the stars glimmering off the water provide the perfect romantic backdrop.

It’s easy to see why the Wicked Walu Restaurant at Warwick Hotel is the perfect sunset dining location. With its stunning traditional architecture, delicious menu, beautiful island setting and friendly staff, it's the ideal spot to unwind and enjoy the natural beauty of the South Pacific.
