Lovely looking restaurant with tables around the island so you can sit outside and enjoy the views. Only stayed for some dessert but it was quite nice at a reasonable price. We stopped here after kayaking to the blue hole, highly recommend it!

We stopped at Oyster Island Resort for lunch while driving up the coast of Espiritu Santo from Luganville. Set on its own small island, the resort’s private little barge ferries guests to and from the mainland in minutes. As our boat approached the little island, we could see a stretch of beautiful white sand charmingly dotted with little coconut and... More

We visited for lunch. I had a pizza and my wife the fish. Service was friendly but slow. The food was OK but nothing that would entice you back. The table by the water was lovely though.

On Sunday's, when the fish are biting! Friendly staff, good food, seating undercover of pandanus thatched roof as well as waterfront options. Pick up from main island and transport via local boat across channel adds to the adventure. Haven't yet stayed on this island but intend to on my next visit. Waterfront bungalows look adequate ... location is everything.

We went the first sunday that we were there, and because people raved about it, even though a bit disappointed the first time, we got NO seafood at all the next Sunday. There was plenty of food, and the only seafood was the processed packaged fillers in a seafood pasta, nothing special.

Chocolate ribs were special but all the food was nicely presented and tasty. The sweet was a cream and sponge roll. When I asked for some fruit they brought out a yummy fresh fruit salad. It is especially good you combine your buffet lunch with a canoe( canoe hire is then free) paddle from the resort to the Matevulu blue... More
