heard great reviews about this place so 10 of us went for lunch and were disappointed, food wasn't fresh… salad was soggy and tom was on the edge of being rotten and the sea food was overcooked! however the kids meals were fantastic, chicken was cooked perfect!

We came here for lunch and enjoyed both the service and the food. The food came out quickly and was reasonably priced. I had delux nachos, my sister had the American burger. The food was very rich, but they were our choices. I hear that the breakfast is the best in town, we will go back and try it.

We thought this was a good option for lunch, but were really disappointed. The beer wasn't cold, which was a surprise, and the burgers we ordered did not match the description on the menu. We sent one burger back, but still it did not come out as described & the meat patties weren't cooked properly. I guess everywhere has good... More

I live in Vanuatu and as the old saying goes “Eat where the Locals Eat”. Jill’s Café is one of the places that I frequent; more than regularly. Jill’s have an excellent menu, from which the All American Breakfast is my preferred selection. Jill’s have clean toilets and views over the harbour from the open air section of the café.... More

We usually enjoy the food at Jills, but last week for a change I ordered Caesar salad as I felt like a light lunch. Well it didn't resemble Caesar salad as I know it (yes I am a bit of a purist). There was NO parmesan, egg, bacon or anchovy (unless it was in the dressing). Instead there were ingredients... More

Nice for a cheap burger and chips style lunch. Not the best customer service but you get the impression they're trying.

We had lunch on a Saturday, ordered ice tea, chicken schnitzel and a burrito. Ice tea we got has no sugar and when asked they said they don't put sugar we have to do our own. We couldn't do it ourselves because the glass is full of ice and we can't stir it. They still insisted that they can't do... More
