This cafe was excellent!!!! Great food, great service and best ever fresh fruit drink. Prices excellent. Only set back is that they close at 5.30pm, so can't do dinner. Don't miss this cafe you will love it and the meals are big.

We enjoyed the daily special of veal schnitzel ....delicious! Restaurant was very busy but plenty of wait staff meant we were served very quickly. Good mix of tourists and locals....always a good indicator if the locals eat there! Relaxed cafe with a nice vibe and yummy iced coffees!

We had to try Jill's especially after reading all the reviews. I had a chicken burrito and a lemonaid and my partner had a Burger. She was very happy with the burger and the chicken burrito was better than I had expected, the lemonaid was great (as I remember it from back home). Worth a visit, we may be back... More

Friendly staff and greater selection of food than anywhere else. Had lunch there and had mexican food. very tasty. if you are running out of reading materials you can buy a second hand book and the proceeds go to help animal welfare.

We ate at Jill's café several times recently and as always (third visit to Efate) we found the food and service to be of a good standard. It's always really busy which must say the café owner and staff are doing something right.

Stopped here for a late lunch one day, and was surprised at the large menu on offer. A range of burgers, drinks and Mexican meals, and it does cater for vegetarians. A separate breakfast menu is available also. This is the most beef hubby has eaten in his life during our time here, but he can't fault it. The Hawaiian... More

Large informal cafe with great breakfasts. Large portions, good value in Port Vila. Wish we would have found it earlier in stay, we would have come in more often.

Jills cafe has apparently been in port Vila for years, and serves up good basic food. The selection of hamburgers will compare favourably to anywhere in the world, which is surprising for a pacific nation as normally beef is more of a rarity in such places. Its not until you realise that cattle farms are extensive on the both Efate,... More

Quite large cafe, centrally located in Vila, with huge staff, friendly and OK service. Menu selection is mainly burgers and Mexican and prices not high. Since no Maccas in Vanuatu, this is good choice for a lunch.
