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.

Hidden gem

A delightful waterfront café hiding behind a high fence on the main road into Port Vila, and decorated in fresh blue and white. Extensive, moderately priced menu with plenty of kids' options. Large servings, well presented.
