Reelax’n our boat gives us the freedom to visit local Fiji islands and recently we visited Musket Cove Island Resort to find the The Trader Cafe re-build had finished and they were open for business. When visiting Musket Cove Island Marina there are a few options for food, sometimes we pack a picnic and make good use of our boat’s facilities and eat on board.  Many times we’ve walked up to the resort restaurant and indulged in a hamburger or their fantastic thai beef salad, when we found The Trader Cafe was open, we jumped at the chance to try it out.

Top 5 Reasons to Visit The Trader Cafe Musket Cove Island Resort Fiji

1. Location

Located at Musket Cove Island Resort Marina only 45 mins from Port Denarau in Fiji, The Trader Cafe is a welcomed addition to the quality food options already available at Musket Island.  The best bit, it’s only steps from the marina and ferry jetty.


2. Decor

I’m a total sucker for nautical decor, The Trader Cafe had me at the get go.  Classic nautical styling with modern touches combined with comfortable, shaded seating options means settling back for the afternoon will be just the ticket. We enjoyed the lounge seating and cool breezes on the veranda, there is also outdoor tables with seating and indoor dining.

3. Food & Drink

We took one for the team and tried a range of menu items and can happily say all high quality and super tasty. All meals were a generous portion.  The Trader Cafe has a variety of non-alcoholic & alcoholic beverages to keep you well stocked for the afternoon.

4. Prices

Range from FJD $18-$35 with a few cheaper items in the display cabinet, including meat pies, sausage rolls and a selection of freshly made cakes and sweets.


5. Atmosphere

Relaxed; the type of location you where you don’t just eat and run. We enjoyed our final moments with my parents at The Trader Cafe before they jumped aboard the Malolo Cat to start their journey home to Australia. We’ll certainly be a regular, next time I think we’ll need to try The Trader Cafe’s wood fired pizza.
