Expensive but delicious

Situated within the Grand Hotel and overlooking the bay and the island - it is a fantastic place to enjoy a delicious albeit expensive meal. Must try dish are the banana fritters and the Taste of Vanuatu.

An older property in Port Vila but elegant and well maintained. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The food was delicious and we didn't have a very long wait for any course. Lovely view across to Irririki Island, which unfortunately isn't operational at present. The wine and cocktail list are quite small, but offer some nice options. If you are... More

There is no street noise and the atmosphere was great. The service was prompt and staff were very friendly. The menu had plenty to choose from and... More

Within the Grand a Hotel is this lovely restaurant. By day (& probably evenings if you don't mind the mozzies) this has a great balcony area with lovely views towards Iririki. Inside also has lovely views. We went here twice during our stay & thoroughly enjoyed both meals. They do theme nights a couple of time a week & we... More

We had dinner here and was impressed with the quality and the generous servings and the excellent service (Alice, you are so lovely and we were so pleased to get to know you). The prices were comparable to other restaurants but you get the beautiful views of Iririki Island and the harbor thrown in for free. We enjoyed it so... More
