Dined at this restaurant 3 times, breakfast, lunch and dinner and sat outside on the balcony overlooking the clearest water - the setting is just picture perfect. Lunch was the best, the sun shinning off the water, boats coming in and out of the harbour, para-sailing - it is the best watching spot on the water. The staff speak good... More

Our first stop in Port Villa craving our normal coffee. A bit surprised that there is actually no 'fresh' milk and mostly longlife milk, but we soon got used to it.

Our family (2 adults and 2 small children) ate at this restaurant purely because of the hot spots voucher. I am SO glad we ate here! Wow! The meals were beautiful, the service was second to none and overall, it was an amazing experience! After dinner, our waiter was very apologetic that he was unable to order us transport back... More

We were looking for a restaurant to celebrate our wedding anniversary and Tillys was recommended to us and it did not disappoint. It is located on the waterfront but at night there aren't many lights so if you are after a view lunch would be a better option. The food was the best we ate in Vanuatu and the restaurant... More

Visitors and expats can buy restaurant/entertainment vouchers for 1000 vatu ($10) from various places around PV, we bought ours at Goodies. Tilly's restaurant had a very good deal, so 4 of us had a truly out standing meal (again). We had a gorgeous table on the balcony overlooking the water. Our Ni Van waiter (didn't catch his name) was extremely... More

This restaurant was recommended to us so we thought we’d give it a try for dinner on Sunday night. We arrived and were greeted by a friendly welcome and ushered to our table.

We had lunch here twice during our stay in Vila and both times the food and staff were very good. Lovely sitting out on the balcony watching the world go bye. Good fresh ceasar salads, chicken and a prawn. The staff were exceptionally friendly and knowledgeable about Vanuatu. Delightful place for lunch.
