Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The boat actually moves quite a lot even though it's anchored to the shore, on our visit there was little to no wind but the pot plants inside were all visibly moving. Service is quite good but I had reserved a birthday dinner and requested...no obvious 'decorations' but they put it anyway. Service times are quite quick. Our entree was well plated and tasted fantastic. The mains weren't so good, the steak temperature was good but under seasoned, parts of it were burnt and they put a garlic bread under it, which had soaked all the sauce like a sponge. The fish main on the other hand was better but not worth the price. Overall I'd only recommend trying seafood here. Food: 2.5/5 Service: 4/5 Ambiance: 3.5/5More

Great restaurant for a break from our cruise. The atmosphere is interesting aboard a floating boat. Food was excellent and the service flawless. We thoroughly enjoyed the entire experience. Some would say the prices are high but in Fiji dollars I would say just about...right for a Seafood restaurant.More

This restaurant is great for a special occasion or romantic dinner. I had the lobster and my husband had the snapper which were both delicious. The location and setting adds to the uniqueness of this floating restaurant. The views are beautiful.

The restaurant is floating therefore it moves while you eat, felt like being drunk. However the atmosphere is lovely, the place was quite busy so bad side of this was it was noisy and crowded and felt war. Good in a way windows could be...widely opened to let fresh air in. I gave 3 stars because the foods were not impressive. We ordered charcoal grilled mini octopus and prawns for entree, that was OK, charcoal gave a good flavour, the meat was a bit dried. Our main was Surf and Sand which was lobster and fish. Again the meat was dried and hard. What I liked the most was the salad bar offered for free buffet style, and they were yummy with ferns and seaweed.More

Great ambiance and food. What a lovely place. I had seared tuned wrapped in bacon. It was SO GOOD. All of our food was good and the ambiance was great - a lovely old boat with wood paneling and so romantic.

Food was divine. Timely service and the staff were very professional. When we arrived it was high tide and there were bits of rocky movements felt which was a tad bit uncomfortable but then it normalized and we enjoyed the night.

Just home from visiting family in Fiji. I have dined at Tiko's before and was keen to take my brother there for the seafood during our visit. Atmosphere and service was great as always. However two things: I got food poisoning and spent the night...vomiting and the next few days planning my movements in relation to the available toilets!! Having ordered the Walu steak I suspect the problem was rancid cooking oil!! The other thing was that the portions of the two main courses were far to large - 2x Walu steaks on the plate were way beyond me as were the 2x fillets of fish my brother was served. Smaller portions with a greater emphasis on the vegetables would be worth considering. Having dined at the exceptional seafood restaurant Fleur's Place (now closed) at Moeraki in NZ's South Island Tiko's would score '0' on a scale to 1-10 compared with '10' for Fleur's!! 'Disappointing' - I won't be going back or recommending Tiko's to friends. Tony Silvester-ClarkMore

Lovely Fijian food, with arguably the best view in Suva. Staff were friendly and helpful with recommendations of local dishes. On the more expensive side but worth the trip

Excellent food, drink and atmosphere! Staff are very friendly and helpful, especially with my disabled dad who is in a wheelchair and the staff carried him all the way up to the table. Food is very tasty with great ambience! Highly recommend!

I was with a large group of colleagues, some based in Suva, some from the US. I had heard that Tiko's was the best restaurant in Suva- so I was looking forward to it. Not a fish eater normally, I opted for some steak and...was not disappointed. My colleagues all seemed pleased with the food. Their was some drinking going on but the overall ambiance of the room at the back of the boat, facing the sunset, was not lost. Waves make the boat rock a bit, but after a bit it was unnoticeable. Our waitress was fantastic and very helpful. She covered the entire party of 15 herself.More

This restaurant is beautiful inside and has an amazing view. The food is not cheap, but the menu is h-u-g-e and so are the portions. They serve a range of fish and seafood and our server was very patient explaining and describing the dishes we...were curious about. The food was beautifully presented and we did not have a long wait, despite the restaurant being quite busy. The only criticism is the over cooked fish (every time even when we asked for medium rare). The salad bar was a great opportunity to try some of the more traditional side dishes that we would not otherwise have given a go. Definitely recommend making a reservation as this place is popular.More

Moored on the seafront, Tiko's Restaurant is well worth a visit. The quirky cabins on board are superb. The seafood is wide ranging, well prepared and beautifully presented. A visit to Suva is not complete without a visit to Tiko's.
