Amazing location, very good food

We just had lunch at this amazing location, enjoyed local coconut crab, lobster, prawns and sreak- all very nice. The restaurant ist very well located at a lagoon, there is always a nice breeze, the location is just magnificient. Food is very good but pricy.

We had lunch here and what a great place to relax by the water. The location is excellent right on the water. Plenty of food to choose from and we enjoyed our meals.

Yes, loved a bouillabaisse. The rich base soup with great seafood. New Zealand mussels, fish, prawns were nicely cooked. The curries did not have much of an Indian flavours, but were nice and not too spicy. The size of the meals were decent and not too expensive. The service didn't impress me at all.

The food was awful and overpriced. Also had food poisoning after eating calamari salad from here and was sick for over 2 days of my holiday. Would not recommend.

Long wait for meals despite restaurant being half empty. Lovely ambiance and good waiting staff but spoilt by bad communication regarding payment options. Such a shame as it could have so much to offer.

Taking your girl out for dinner and having her pay for it +5% because they don't accept your card AFTER you made sure they would by showing the card beforehand is not impressive. Nor is the 1.5 hour wait before food arrives in a near empty restaurant. The patrons response? This is Vanuatu.

We recently had dinner at this restaurant and agree with others that it is in a lovely setting overlooking the lagoon. In terms of value, we found it to be very overpriced for the quality of food received and would suggest there are far better options in Vila for what you would pay here.

Situated almost over the lagoon. We had a lovely evening meal with nice wine and friendly service as the sun when down.

This restaurant was just up the road from Cocomo Resort, where we were staying. When we arrived, there were no other guests at the restaurant that evening. Nevertheless, we were made very welcome, and sat in the beautiful tropical garden right beside the water, watching the fish and starfish. Our meals were beautifully served, and the service was excellent! The... More
