Quick and friendly

Good portions, quick service and generally 'burger cafe' type food. Coffee is okay and service is very friendly In the centre of Port Vila and not far from the seaway. Nachos are 'home made'.

Jill's is a good spot to grab a bite to eat or a drink if you are shopping in port villa. You can get a seat with a view of the harbor and the staff are friendly and helpful.

Just popped in for an iced coffee - very good and cheap price compared to Melbourne, plus there was a good sized ice cream scoop. Yummy.

Had a flat white to take away. Much cheaper than sitting down, was in a hurry so that was why I didn't stay, coffee was large and divine and much cheaper than having in! Didn't realise there was a different price.

After reading all the reviews my husband and I were excited to try this place on our last day in Vila. Unfortunately the food was expensive for what we got - the sandwich I ordered tasted as though it had been packed for a picnic - the tomato was definitely not freshly sliced - and the cheese fries we ordered...

Jill's is my favorite place to eat in Vila the staff is so nice, the food is good, and the prices are relatively cheap (for Vila standards).
