The food was mostly good, we enjoyed the beef, croquettes and the chicken. First time trying salty fried coconut, this was very rich. Unfortunately we didn't enjoy the dessert. On a positive note, the service was attentive and friendly, and the view very nice.

We chose here to celebrate with a breakfast after reading the reviews: I ordered the baked eggs in Napoli sauce very nice indeed and would definitely recommend them. Bacon as a side would be better then the baguette which I didn't eat. My hubby ordered the big breakfast and indeed it was big and very enjoyable, the really funny thing... More

Dear Carie B Apologies for a delay in my response. The great egg mystery has created quite a stir (in a fun way). Breakfast Chef Unity is adamant as to where she places the eggs each breakfast dish and on such a big dish and says they should be under the toast and they are the first thing she puts... More

Best Tapas I have ever had! Swordfish was to die for and the service brilliant. The view from the Restaurant was amazing and price wise was comparative.

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.
