A magic setting to watch the sun set and enjoy a few drinks. The new owners and the staff are very welcoming and the whole place has a fresh and inviting look and feel to it.. We enjoyed our first meal there last Sunday and it won't be the last. Delicious dips with the entree (bread, dips and crudites) and... More

Thank you Cindy and Dean to both your staff and yourselves for welcoming us during our 6 day stay. If we stayed longer we may not have left. We started with lunch and had drinks that evening and then sat and fished near your little jetty. We took the best pina colada onboard the sunset cruise so conveniently docked under... More

A great spot right on the bay. Has a lovely village feel, great style and excellent staff. This is a great spot to relax and watch the world go by on the water of Port Vila. The coffee is great, the team do their best to be of maximum help and it never feels crowded or stuffy.

Such a lovely setting. Right on the waterfront. The food was fantastic, average prices for Vanuatu, which is expensive but that's how it is there. Really pleased we chose there to eat. Nothing to dislike.

We visited here a few times to come back and enjoy the delightful location and friendly service. The menu is still new but hopefully a few more pacific/seafood dishes will make an appearance to make this experience even more enjoyable. A great spot in the heart of Vila!

First time visit to this restaurant, which has just had new owners take over. What a surprise, an excellent meal and service was first class. Price very reasonable compared to many Vila restaurants. Ask for a table at the water edge, absolute stunning. Thanks to all, we will be back.

New owners Dean and his wife make this restaurant visit especially memorable! Chatty and making us feel instantly comfortable and welcome we really enjoyed our meal here with our two children. The staff were attentive and the food was excellent...best steaks and the children meals were appreciated.

This restaurant sits next to the Grand Hotel Casino and has a very easy to miss entrance. It is on the Port Vila harbour with its glassy mirror image surface that provides that peaceful water and its many reflections. This is a French restaurant and it delivers in every respect a first class experience. From the delicious, well presented cuisine... More

Thank you for your lovely review. Yes we will be working on getting our street entrance, signage and lighting over the next month. The sunset cruise boat does look good coming back into dock all lit up. More

I gave this review 4 stars mainly for potential. It was our favourite place 5 years ago, I was very excited about it, but now it changed owners (from French to NZ) and the food is not the same quality. I understand it just reopened a few weeks ago but I really hope they will focus their menu a bit... More
