Think Musket Cove and you think of the country’s biggest cruising yachts regatta. But also think fine food in good surroundings.

Musket Cove Island Resort and Marina on Malolo Lailai island in the Mamanucas off Nadi has plenty of this too.

Their culinary team led by Kiwi executive chef Peter Becker sources nothing but the best and freshest local and imported produce.

Mr Becker says there are several dining options available, from gourmet cuisine at Dick’s Place bar and bistro to something light at their marina edged Coffee Cove or a cook your own BBQ at the famous MCYC island bar and BBQ.

“We have an organic farm with a large percentage of fruit and vegetables coming from our very own,” he said.

“We also offer great value for money wines and cocktails. For breakfast, lunch and dinner at the heart of the Resort overlooking the lagoon pool and beachfront.”

He added one of the best ways to discover a culture is through food, where the menus showcase the best and freshest local produce and seafoods from their neighbouring village.

“We also offer a true taste of Fiji and its varied cuisines. Enjoy our A La Carte or indulge at one of Musket’s legendary theme nights.

“‘The Trader’, situated on the edge of our Marina is dubbed as a wonderfully relaxing venue for a cafe style meal, gourmet pizza, ice cream or merely to chat over a cup of coffee or freshly squeezed juice.”

The Trader cafe serves a large variety of coffees, teas, and cool drinks ideal for a day in the tropics. The menu encompasses a good choice of light healthy bistro cuisine.

 

Organic Farm

Located on the back side of the island allows them to provide the organic farm freshest produce.

Chef Becker said: “Our herbs, lettuces, fruit and vegetables are harvested and delivered to the Trader and kitchens daily. We pride ourselves on our sustainable farming techniques with no herbiscides and pesticides used. We also supply free range eggs and our Musket organic honey is produced right here on island.”

 

Island Bar

The Martin Livingstone designed bar and chill out areas exude a relaxed atmosphere.

Known affectionately by locals and Yachties alike as the Island Bar it is linked to the resort by the marina walkway. This sand between the toes beach bar with casual atmosphere must not be missed.

Drinks at yacht club prices and with cook your own BBQs, this venue make for a perfect informal evening’s entertainment.

Also at Musket they offer a variety of private dining options. From a private champagne picnic on a secluded palm fringed beach or romantic candlelit dinner on their private jetty.

Chef Becker said he was pleased to stylise a menu to suit any occasion.

“Private group picnics with friends or family can also be arranged. Whether it be a Fiji family style feast at Coral Cay Island or BBQ at the MCYC Island Bar. Nothing is too difficult.”
