This is an amazing place to eat, the food is amazing, the location is wonderful, you eat right on the water, and the service was absolutely wonderful.

My friend and I were in vanuatu for a week and wanted to try coconut crab and have a splurge lunch somewhere scenic. I was a little turned off by the TripAdvisor rating, but villa chaumieres came highly recommended by our hotel manager. The setting is very pretty and quiet perched on the lagoon, the seafood was perfectly cooked and... More

Wonderful recommendation from our local host saw us at this lagoon front restaurant. Everything was perfect, make sure you get there to see some of the sunset and enjoy a lemon tusker over the flowing lagoon. The food was very nice, coconut prawns and curry coconut mussels for entree. Thank goodness we only ordered one portion of the coconut crab,... More

We had a wonderful meal here with very attentive service in a beautiful setting. Food was great, knowledgable and friendly staff. We took our 9 & 11 year olds who really enjoyed their Calamari salads as we enjoyed our main meals. Wish we had found this earlier in our trip.

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 We got here to see that the chilli crab that we had enjoyed last time had been withdrawn .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
