Vila Chaumieres is a little bit out of town so expect a 10-15 minute bus ride from the town centre and for the bus to charge you 200 pp rather than the standard 150 pp for town destinations. Located on the lagoon, it's definitely an intimate setting. it is important to remember that if you're in Vanuatu at night there... More

We had lunch here with our driver Clement while out for the day. Beautiful setting on the lagoon. Had to try the local famous Coconut Crab, and it was lovely! Happy, friendly service. Clement said he loved his Fish and chips!

This restaurant sits over the lagoon so the location and view over the water is spectacular. The meal was very good as was the service, we would happily go back. It was one of our most expensive meals in Vanuatu so it is definitely not for the budget conscious.

We have visited here on 3 prior occasions and had never been disappointed. I had the Coconut Crab ( again )done in chili sauce - the chefs ( Samson ) signature dish and I reckon it gets better every time, my wife had the half lobster ( entree size) and it was also another hit. Keep up the good work... More

My sister and I went here on our last night in Vanuatu on recommendation and we loved it. I had the steak, my sister had the seafood pasta. Both cooked perfectly. We each had a cocktail - not the strongest mix, on the expensive side - but enjoyable. The restaurant is tucked away, you wouldn't know it was there unless... More

Loved the crepes, beef wellington & the onion soup. Very nice terrace out on the water - ate here daily for a week as we were in house and loved it. Gorgeous at night with the water lit up and all the fish in view - just a pleasant during the day.
