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

We are a party of five adults and one child and one member decided she wanted to try their "specialty" Coconut Crab. (We have since found out most restaurants do not serve it now due to its seriously depleted numbers) We walked in to a beautiful restaurant overlooking a floodlit lagoon with lots of marine life. First thing as soon... More

We decided to go to Vila Chaumieres, albeit expensive, as we were having such a wonderful holiday in Port Vila. The restaurant entrance is very daunting to find at night, tradesman's entrance, dark winding path, quite long, with little signage. Found the delightful setting, over the lagoon, soft lighting. This was going to be so romantic. Da daaaaa! Ordered wine,... More

After reading reviews on Trip Advisor and in Island Life magazine, My wife and I decided to forgo the higher prices and dine at Vila Chaumieres. We arrived slightly after sunset and if not for the driver pointing us in the right direction, we would have had difficulty finding the restaurant. There was one small sign pointing down the sparsely... More

The setting was really quite enchanting and the staff pleasant, but we felt severely "ripped off' by the cost of the meal. My husband had a seafood crepe which was in a small oval bowl and quite ordinary, despite the price tag. My souffle was a perfect texture but had hardly any flavor.

We had very high expectations but even if the setting is very nice we were a bit disppointed. The service is really too slow and the food on the avarage and it doesn t justify the price at all. They didnt even want to call us a taxi but they suggest us to go on the street. Definetely overrated

I am a big fan of seafood and was looking forward to eating here. My expectations were fulfilled when the first meal was bought out to me, the Lobster Salad. The portions of the lobster were very decent. I ate this well prepared meal over looking the sunset. The Seafood Pasta I had the following night was amazing, all parts... More

Having eaten here previously were keen to experience it again and our entree of seafood crepe showed us we werent wrong in choice. It was quite a large serving and my travel companion had seafood bouillabaisse which was also wonderful. The main meal however didnt follow the standard - i had the pork which ended up being a pork chop... More
