Enjoyable and relaxing time

We stopped by at Tilly's late afternoon for a drink and decided to stay for dinner. It was just great relaxing in and by the pool. The place was quiet (not too many kids), which suited us. As the sun was going down we decided to stay for dinner. Meal was great. Service was very good. Sunset... read more

My husband and I enjoyed our first evening meal while in Port Vila at Chantilly's on the bay. It was really beautiful to sit in the on the deck to watch the sun go down (before the mozzies came to attack). The service was very slow in this place but we found this to be the case at almost all... More

This restaurant, situated in Chantilly's on the Bay Resort, was outstanding. We started our afternoon with a couple's massage at Body and Soul Beauty Spa in the same complex, then had drinks at Banyan Beach Bar and watched a cruise ship glide out of port and into the huge blue sea before going to Tilly's for what was one of...

Romantic location but duck spring rolls need to have a thinner roll and not pancake style. Beef curry was very dry. The dinner menu needs an update but happy that their breakfasts are great as the location a stroll out of town is lovely.

Title sums it up, food was better than some restaurants we have been to, service was good, but it was still pricey, it was a pleasant evening though

I am a local living in the Mele area. Tilly's is a wonderful place for breakfast. Great specials. Good coffee. Wonderful staff. Lunch menu is very nice and dinner looking out over the bay, delicious. The chocolate on chocolate dessert was delicious.

We had a light lunch of tapas dishes. Very fresh food, Tusker on tap and good service. Worth a visit, particularly on a hot, steamy day as you can dine indoors in the air con but still enjoy the view

We chose Tilly's having read great reviews! Very disappointed. Location was great. Service was very very slow it took us ages to get orders taken and then even longer for our meals to arrive, coffee was average at best, crockery was dirty, my partner had poached eggs which were average and I had the blueberry pancakes which turned up missing...

One of the best night's we've had in Vanuatu. The food was fantastic, from the house made pate` to the deliciously moist chocolate cake we couldn't fault it. The staff is attentive, polite and very professional. Whilst it's considered fine dining we really didn't find it that expensive compared to other "non-takeway" places in Port-Vila. Whilst the sunset over the... More
