Greg Maloney, General Manager of Radisson Resort Fiji said, "It is an honor and privilege to be recognized for this specific award.  Over the years, the challenges in food and beverage have always been a point of contention for visitors to Fiji and we had to step up to the plate so to speak, to ensure we did all we could to change this.  The menu we provide is varied and features local produce in a diverse culinary style.  A specialty of the restaurant is Kava Ice-cream which is quiet unique.  In addition, there is a wide selection of wines not readily found in other locations around Fiji enhancing the overall dining experience. This is also a strong acknowledgment for the team at CROSS who have worked hard to build and deliver an exceptional product"
