Le Cafe du Village was, years ago " the place to go", but sadly over the last few years the place lost its passion. With a lick of paint lots of love and wonderful helpers and a brand new fully equiped kitchen we have brought her back to life. Come meet our wonderful staff, look over our interesting lunch and dinner menus as you sample from our expanding wine list. Come, Relax and Enjoy.

Delicious

This was nearly opened when I went. I sat on the waterfront, ate a devine meal and had cooling drinks. Fantastic way to end a day of exploring.

Service was very slow and the meals pretty average. Shame as great location and views - this could be something special if run hands on by the management instead of just leaving it all up to the staff. Who by the way were lovely but inexperienced.

Hi, Very sorry your experience was not a good one. We, as owners are very hands on, only being away from the restaurant when buying stock etc. We think our staff are great, very friendly and helpful, But we all have our bad days. More

Cafe du Village is located in just the perfect location right on the waters edge overlooking Iririki Island Resort. The location is perfect, food is fantastic and staff could not be more helpful, who could ask for more.

Café du Village is a welcome addition to Port Vila, especially in the aftermath of Cyclone Pam, with access to fresh seafood, fruit and vegetables challenging. Many other restaurants were closed at the time so we ate at this haven several times during our stay in Vanuatu and each time the food, service and atmosphere were exceptional. Staff remembered our... More

Lunch yesterday was fantastic. The steak and kidney pie was simply perfect and it's accompaniments of kumala mash and mushy peas just complemented the pie perfectly. I sampled my partner's osso bucco and it was melting tender and very tasty. Love the hospitality and the it's the best location in Vila.

We hadn't made a booking but were shown to a table on the wharf area. Our meal was very very good.beautifully cooked fish and mussels. The owner, a Kiwi, was ensuring everyone was happy and was very chatty.

Went here when in town after visiting the local markets. It is a very quaint restaurant on the harbour front so very pretty. However service was very slow (only 6 people in the restaurant) and the food pretty average. Could do with a bit more supervision and fresh oil for the chips.
