The milkshakes are really good and so is everything else I have tried on the menu. I go there about 3 times a week and there is so much to choose from I... read more

Jill's was wonderful, wish we had found it sooner. Good simple meals at a reasonable price. Service was very good.

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...

An 'American Diner' by it's own description. The food was fantastic and well priced. Loads to choose from (you have to try the nachos and their homemade lemonade), Generous servings, and the breakfasts were amazing too! The staff are just gorgeous, and you'll probably run into Jill herself! We went back twice!

When in Port Vila we always visit Jill's lunch. Consistently good. The staff are always pleasant and the iced coffee and vanilla thickshake are excellent.

The food is just like an American diner. If you look at the labels they even import many of the ingredients from the States. Prices are good. Food is always good. One of our kids favourite places to eat.
