Air conditioned, lovely view, tasty meals

I ate dinner here twice in a two week stay and both times the service was fast and friendly and the food was flavoursome and well presented. Although I try not to dine at the same place twice during my visits, the last time it was just too hard to pass up the air conditioned comfort with a lovely... read more

After a week in Port Vila, we wish we had come back here sooner. We came here 12 months ago and enjoyed every aspect, and we weren't disappointed with our return trip. The soup was the same as last time, absolutely delicious and a great price for 900 Vatu. Entrees of garlic bread and beef skewers were delicious and good... More

The meals were truly excellent. Unfortunately what took the shine off it was the wait. We were one of only 3 tables there for lunch, and being a larger group (8pax) we did wait more than a while for our meals. Otherwise it would be 5 stars!!

We had a delicious meal at Crystal's restaurant at the Grand Hotel Casino. We hadn't booked for dinner, but there was no need as there were hardly any other customers - maybe 3 or 4 other tables. The service was wonderful, and the food was delicious, although it wasn't cheap. It was my partners birthday so I secretly told the... More

Crystal's setting right on the water across from Irirki Island provides a fantastic outlook for an evening meal: if you time it right, you'll be enjoying pre-dinner drinks watching the sun go down. If it's not raining, grab an outside seat. Service is usually pretty good, but seemed a little slow despite us being the only ones in the restaurant.... More

The Hotel and restaurant have lovely ambiance but the restaurant was deserted. Which is a shame. The staff are experienced and efficient providing a good service. The menu was ordinary, good range of deserts which my husband enjoyed. The food was on a par with a good steak house, not a high grade hotel. a shame. Not the best meal... More
