Vila Chaumieres is a must in Port Vila. I ate here several times during my recent trip to Vanuatu and it was by far my favourite! The coconut crab is to die for... along with several other dishes! The restaurant is located right on the lagoon giving you a unique dining experience. I will definitely be back!

Recommended to us for a special occasion but was very disappointed. Food was OK but nothing special, the service lacked the personality you would expect. Three mains, two entries with 2 bottles of wine for AU$400 and they wanted to charge 4% surcharge for Mastercard! Seriously? Over-rated and overpriced....had all the signs of 'needing new owners'.

We were so looking forward to a lovely lunch as we had eaten here on our last trip to Port Vila. We got here to see that the chilli crab that we had enjoyed last time had been withdrawn . So I tried the Poulee Fish which was tasty but very dry. My wife had the Fish soup which also... More

We were looking for somewhere nice to eat for our last night on Vila when I remembered researching Vila Chaumieres on Trip Advisor when planning our holiday. As we were staying down the road at Sunset Bungalows we called in at lunch and had a look around. We were impressed with the ambience and location so we booked in for... More

We stayed at the accommodation and ate a few meals at the restaurant during our stay. The food was always excellent. The seafood I had for lunch one day was the best meal I ate during our Vanuatu holiday..wonderful delicate flavours! The wine choices were also great. Then there is the gorgeous setting right over the water, so close you... More

We had a fabulous long lunch last Sunday. My husband had the Fisherman's platter as pictured above and it was wonderful. My friend and I had the lobster and it was great followed by a pawpaw and cointreau souffle. All this was washed down with a few lovely bottles of French white in a sublime setting. I enjoyed the meal... More

Wow what a difference a year makes. Went to this restaurant 12 months ago and couldn't fault it and we went back again. Talked this place up in my last review. Well sadly there is nothing to rave about. The Chicken stuffed with mango had no mango and was so dry couldn't eat it. Also my friend had the lobster... More
