It was a little confusing as to where Copra Shed was and figured this was it as there was a big menu on the window. When ordering, I noticed their TA award on the wall and it said Captain's Cafe. Oh well! Glad we made...the "mistake" as the fish n chips were really good. We actually went over to the Copra Shed and sat down. It looked like it would've been more expensive to order from their menu to be honest. It was a little more upscale. However, we were basically seated in the same area along the marina. While it was hot (no breeze coming from one direction), it was still ok and the views were good. We actually went back a few times for lunch and always got the fish which was about $18FJD I think. Not gigantic portions but at least 3 small filets and fries which was plenty for me. The menu was large, so definitely try other things while there!More

The town of Savusavu is majestically located and very friendly, but it is certainly not your typical tourist town. Walking into Captain's Table felt like a breath of fresh air. It was beautifully situated on the harbor, attractive, airy, and had an expansive menu. Some...of the dishes were presented in ways that I was not used to, but all were delicious. (Also, their iced mocha was to die for!). We liked it so much that we went back twice more during our stay!More

I had an excellent easter special 4 course meal here, all for just 50FJD, with amazing local dishes including kakoda and lobster and coconut crusted fish, all with interesting local sides and well cooked. Ate like a king and was treated brilliantly all evening! So...much better than eating at the expensive local resorts.More

Each time I visit Savusavu, I enjoy the atmosphere and beautiful scenery of the Savusavu Yacht Club. I would go across to the Captain’s Cafe and have my daily dose of delicious, refreshing Fruit Smoothie which consists of pawpaw, pineapple and banana. On this trip...I was served a glass of a concoction of it that was deadly sweet. It tasted like bottled juice was added to it. I enquired about it but was re-assured no sugary or flavoured cold drink was added to the Smoothie. I drank it thinking it was my taste buds being sensitive. I couldn’t sleep the whole night! It was disappointing because it’s my favourite drink when I get to Savusavu town. Also the day before I was served this drink in a glass covered with an overflow of smoothie which ended up all over my phone. Also the straw is paper which begins falling apart shortly after using it An inconsistence taste and sloppy service is unacceptable. Very disappointed.More

Bustling little cafe right on the water. Quite a modern decor, clean and fresh. Food and drinks were OK. Pretty tasty. But really it was the feel of the place that was best. Locals and visitors table to table.

Well placed on the water front with friendly, helpful staff. Coffee is excellent and some good value meals to be enjoyed too. A lovely spot to sit and chill.

A wonderful waterside venue. We had the seafood catch of the day and it was delicious. Came back the following day and tried their cafe, also excellent. We had the fish and chips, locally caught fresh fish. Outstanding

We absolutely loved our Fri nite pizza and icecream here. A true Savusavu gem😁😁 We ordered the vegetarian and chicken and pineapple option, loved the cheese toppings.

At the counter, your presence is not acknowledged until 10 mins later.... the staff dont greet customers appropriately..... in fact no salutations at all ..... i went twice, the same weekend, and both times, my order was confused with someone else's order.... and since they...dont give the customers their receipts for the orders, its easy to mislead customers and overcharge.... disgusting and lazy ...they keep the receipts to themselves and pass it to the kitchen.... and then the person in front serving mixes up the orders, cause the receipt in somewhere in the kitchen.... this is just lazy... get a note pad, write the orders, pass it to the kitchen.. wtf!.. the receipt belongs to the customer.. Ice mocha is terrible... ..other meals take ages to prepare...More

Watch many varieties of fish swim by as you enjoy a meal in this serene environment. The food is great, reasonably priced and this place is open till 9 pm. It is located centrally, and the staff can give you information about the best travelling...tips, adventure and accommodation, which is very helpful for people who have travelled for the first time!More
