ROMANTIC SETTING ON THE WATERFRONT

We had a really enjoyable meal with full service here as a family of 4. A little on the pricey side, but with such a lovely setting and immaculate if somewhat "stiff" service this would be a wonderful place to have a romantic dinner for 2. Really loved the walk through the gardens and thought the... read more

This little gem is such a great find! An intimate little jetty over the lagoon, you can watch the local wildlife while dining. The food was exquisite, one of the best meals we have had in a long time! We had the seafood pasta as a starter and it was divine. Cannot recommend this restraint highly enough!

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 large... 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
