Description: Inspired by Mexico's rich culinary history, Mamacita Restaurant and Bar offers its distinctive food from the Wyndham Resort in Denarau, Nadi and from Damodar City, Suva, Fiji. Mamacita is part of the global story in the journey of tastes and flavours, tantalizing both travelers and locals. Its delectable cuisine is extracted from the Mexican culture of street-food and age-old family traditions of cooking banquets using the freshest produce. Uniquely crafted nachos, tacos, fajitas, quesadillas and enchiladas are house staples localized reflecting Fiji's agricultural bounty. Its bar remains unparalleled in range of tequilas on the local scene. Mamacita weaves wholesome Mexican traditional with contemporary Fijian richness through an innovative cuisine blending the uniqueness of a Mesoamerican culinary fare with the philosophy of fresh and local. A seamless layout embracing kitchen, dining and bar areas offers intimate warmth. Thoughtful attention to detail extends to decor reflecting Mexican culture through photographs, the quintessential sombrero and other memorabilia.

The traditional Mexican practice of planting and harvesting to cooking and eating is parallel to the ongoing offerings at Mamacita. Innovating a culinary fusion resulting from the blending of native Mexican and Spanish conquistador food and tradition, Mamacita is proud participant in the global food journey and unmatched in the Pacific.

My husband and I went to Mamacita when we were staying next door at the Radisson with our two year old son. We couldn’t fault the service at all and the wait staff were extremely friendly and helpful, although the meals weren’t too exciting and for what we paid (around $100 FJD - we just ordered a cheesy garlic bread for our son to have) we weren’t disappointed but we didn’t return again during our visit to Fiji.

Food was great, service was good and the setting was ok.

We had an enchilada, burrito, fajita, guacamole with corn chips and tequila and lime prawns which were delish. Was a great place to have casual lunch and a few drinks.

I was a bit skeptical of this place given a bad mojito experience I had at the Denarau marina the night before, but I was pleasantly surprised. The margarita I had was very good! Also the tacos were tasty and the mole also was quite good. I didn’t have the guacamole, so can’t comment on that. Service was a bit slow and we did have to chase our server to take our order and bring our bills. Other than that, Definitely recommended if you are in Denarau.

Highly recommend.
Party of six staying at resort. Had breakfast on first day and all parties were very happy with their meals.
Waited until last day to have dinner at Mamacitas. Big mistake. Best meal of the week after a couple of disappointing meals at other nearby restaurants.
All 6 of us enjoyed our meals. Quickly delivered. Hot. Very tasty.

Had heard a lot of great things about Mamacita's, but found it quite average. The food wasn't really 'mexican', it was a gourmet take on it. Limited menu selections, not super flavourful, and particularly small portions.

The granite tasted good, but wasn't worth the $17 they charge for it. Service was really good though, and place was buzzing.
