The restaurant interior and view (from right at the top of the bay) is beautiful and even better we were able to dine on the jetty on the water for the same price (which held in total 2-3 tables for couples). We ordered from the tapas menu which wasn’t particularly cheap (~AU$12 ea dish), but was good food and worth... More

The mains were also very tasty, but we perhaps ate a little more than we needed to. The stuffed chicken breast wrapped in prosciutto was a favourite of my son's and... More

I have been to Tilly's quite a few times, and I think the service gets worse and worse. Previously I needed to wait 45 minute before waiting staff came to take our order, then it took around 1 -2 hours to get our meals. my friend got eggs benedict which he said was way to salty, and I got banana...

After 4 hours on the plane, having a big dinner was out of the question, ordered Tappas, this was the best food I have had for some time. Last night in Vanuatu and we had a good bye dinner, it was spectacular, can recommend that the Eye fillet and the Chicken Breast in Prochutto is a definate winner. Well done... More

Late breakfast/brunch. Very good choice and service. Definately come here to soak up the views even when it rains. Couldn't fault it and free wifi was a bonus.

We enjoyed our cocktails and tapas at the end of the jetty on our first night in Port Vila. Loved it so much that we ensured we visited it one more time on our last night. Best food and world class service!

Great breakfast spot and good veg options. Also a favourite spot for afternoon coffee while we watch the sun set - a real treat. The banana bread with coconut jam is really good. Staff are friendly and generally a good option for a chilled hour or so in Port Vila.
