Geckos is across the road from the Shangri La on the Coral Coast. Food was just ok (surf and turf was very average and not worth it, kids bolognaise was good, kids meal of Mac and cheese was very small!) but there was a polynesian dancing and fire dancing show for no charge, which made it all worthwhile! The dance show was really good. Make sure you check which night the dance show is on before you go.

This is a pretty cool place to hang for a family. The food was tasty and quite good value and the kids enjoyed the fire twirling and local dancing shows.

We booked into the restaurant to see the fire dance display.
The food was pretty good and quite different from the resort food where we were staying.
The wine list is fairly average and after 1 bottle of Riesling they ran out, so opted for the Pinot Gris.
The friendliness of the staff and the warm welcome we received was very refreshing and made us feel very at home.
The dancing and fire dancing was great to watch as well.

Staying at the Shangri-La we visited here in search of better and more reasonably priced food, and found it. Went on Sunday night so caught the fire and dancing show which was great.
The food was really reasonably priced and great portion sizes. Wine was really good too, about $100 cheaper per bottle than at the resort!!
We ordered starters which arrived promptly but they then forgot our mains and when we reminded them at 8.30pm they quickly got them out and we had to scoff them down to get back to the SL by 9pm, which was a shame.
Overall really nicely cooked food, good portion sizes, friendly staff, great show and very reasonable prices.

We saw all the reviews in the holidaying in Fiji Facebook group about Geckos& their famous fire show. So we made sure we booked & went.

The food was expensive for what it was.. $27aud for looked like defrosted frozen chicken au Mignon with some iceberg lettuce & cucumber.
My kids meals were basic & overpriced & they didn’t like it.
But ..... we went for the show. And it was lovely, engaging & the fire show was awesome.
Cocktails list was also reasonable.
So I’d say Go!! Fun few hours out with lots of laughs, but don’t expect amazing or resort standard food! My kids still had fun & liked playing pool.
