Tillys is a hotel more known for business travellers rather than tourists. Traditionally everyone can been seen to download their emails (free wifi) while having breakfast. Good dependable fare with a friendly staff is a focus for the whole hotel. They have a grill special only on the weekend which is huge value ( share between two), and is popular... More

Excellent food and service.

Mains of eye fillet for me and an exceptional local tasting plate for my partner. Staff just great, especially Willy, no issue when we... More

Popped in on a Thursday night. there were tables inside but none left outside. When we expressed our desire to sit outside, staff moved a table outside near the pool overlooking the bay. Food was great and the setting beautiful, peaceful and quiet. The staff and service was also very good. We had a lovely night.

This was a perfect choice for our last night in Port Vila. Our maitre d' was a wonderful host, seating us by the pool with a view over the water to the cruise ship leaving the harbour. The food was delicious and the service was extra special.

I've been here a few times either for dinner or brunch. Food is good, with a good range on the menu and it's well presented. I liked the Melanesian sampler which is a good option for those wanting to try the local produce. Friendly staff as always in Vanuatu. Awesome view in the day and good coffee. Recommended for a...

We sat on a balcony table with a terrific view- the food was fresh and 'lively'. Good range of dishes to suit both meat eaters and a vegetarian's tastes.
