Worth the wait, amazing food!

We dropped on by during a trip around the island on the advice of our bus driver. We weren't disapointed. Our bus pulled up and the driver ran in to tell them that there was 16 of us and they confirmed that was ok. When we walked in a man was already hurrying about setting a table for our... read more

Perfect night out for romantic dining. We shared the lobster more than enough for the both of us. ( for me a bit dissapointed that it was served at room temperature) onion and fish soup were delicious.

Such a gorgeous little hidden away spot on the lagoon, watch the fish and sea life while enjoying the beautiful ambience of the lagoon. Great service and beautiful food!

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.
