The food is congruent with a Mediterranean theme; baby octopus salads, roast vegetable arancini, Italian pizza, fresh pasta and a divine selection of appetizing tapas to share. Children will find menu favourites to devour here with ease.
Goji Restaurant is the Marriott Fiji’s main dining space; however it definitely retains a sense of stylish intimacy.

Be ready to loosen your belt buckle and tuck into the most decadent breakfast buffet spread yet. Think, gourmet omelettes, amazing pastries, a drool worthy pancake station, huge fruit platters and an exotic Asian tastes section. Come evening at Goji, there’s an extensive a la carte menu and also a themed buffet evening every night of the week. Cheers!
