Coffee and food reprive

Port Vila has numerous outstanding food places to eat, Jill's is certainly one of them. The coffee here was good, especially the Iced Coffee....very refreshing and it hits the spot of a hot day. The burgers and the comments were outstanding - juicy and full of flavour.

Located centrally, this is a good place for quick and casual meal. The menu is pretty straightforward as you get in other places. I liked the tex mex menu although the taste was mild then what I'm used to. Busy restaurant, especially during lunch time, but I though the service was efficient and quick. Not the best food in Vila,... More

Jill's is the place to go if you're after anything American or Mexican. The food is delicious and the service is fast and always delivered with a smile. The staff are lovely, it's conveniently located right in the middle of town, and the food is reasonably priced. You can sit in the front section and have a meeting, catch up... More

Firstly it has great customer service. As soon as you walk in someone serves you, take your order etc. Meal came quickly and the food was delicious. Went there a few times we were in Vila and loved it. Great food and very good value which was important to us as we were travelling on a budget.

We went to Jill's Cafe after we waited (and waited!!) at Au Peche Mignon for food that never arrived. Their loss is Jill's gain as our lunch was great! We had two burgers and some cheese fries between us and all were freshly cooked but arrived incredible quickly. Service was excellent and it was also very clean and reasonably priced.... More

Whilst shopping we decided to try Jill's Cafe for lunch based on reviews we had read. It did not disappoint. Great food, hamburgers, Mexican, hotdogs etc. very reasonably priced and fast friendly service.
