Dining at Barefoot Manta Resort
The South Pacific Ocean is not only our playground it is also the source of standout seafood. Barefoot Manta takes full advantage of its delicacies in a predictably sustainable manner. Both dinner and lunch menus often have a seafood dish worthy of high praise. Think Mahi Mahi, or Wahoo, presented with a healthy salad, a stir-fry or popped into a savour the flavour curry. Read on to fuel your taste buds and familiarise yourself with our dining options.
Start the day right with a selection of tropical fruits, pancakes, bottomless tea & coffee and juice. The omelette station is a real treat. Here our smiling chef will whip up a tasty protein combination, satisfaction guaranteed. Other hot menu items regularly feature ‘must try’ homemade hash browns, roasted tomatoes and the like.
Lunch is served in our main bure. There’s outdoor and undercover seating options. Take a table or dine communal style alongside the Bamboo Bar. The menu changes daily and there’s always something for everyone. Pacific Island flavours merge with modern dishes. Servings are generous, handy to fill the belly after a morning of exploring our marine wonderland. Of course the Bamboo Bar is open to all should you want a nice ice cold beverage to compliment your lunch.
The Sunset Deck is where it’s at. Dine beachfront on the stunning white sand, among swaying coconut palms, overlooking the stunning ocean views that entice all to indulge in island life. Our talented chefs at Barefoot Manta will ensure your dinner is a pleasant affair. A cocktail enjoyed under the expansive night sky is a must.
Note: Most dietary requirements can be accommodated. Please ensure you advise us of any dietary requirements or allergies when making your booking.
Although we’re a remote location, our Manta Island chef continually prepares a range of simple, hearty and delicious meals. The use of seasonal ingredients (most of which are sourced or grown locally) is paramount to the fresh flavours on offer. Come evening time entertainment with the band boys singing traditional Fijian songs around a beach bonfire.

Weave your own plates for your dinner, participate in a cooking lesson making the traditional dish Kokoda then watch on as our team prepares the lovo (earth oven) and places the meat, fish, and vegetables that will be cooked for your dinner. A few hours later you will be able to watch the unveiling of the lovo and sit village communal style with other guests to enjoy the meal as family’s do in their village. After dinner be entertained by your “Fiji Family” as the staff gather and perform a Meke (traditional Fijian dance & songs) especially for you. Yes you will be encouraged to join in.
