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.

Great meal, good view, wonderful service

Easy to walk by if you are not looking for it. Down a little alleyway opens into a great open air harbourside venue. Extensive menu. Everything we had was execellent. The staff were amazing from the lovely manager down to the friendly waiters. In my view the best fine dining in port Vila.

Perfectly cooked seafood is a rare occurrence in a land where the locals enjoy fish cooked until dry and that's what made Cafe Du Village all the more special. With food direction by Fiona Gillanders, one of Vanuatu's best menu designers and chefs, a better than average wine list, delightful venue and caring hosts (Dean & Cindy), Cafe Du Village... More

I visited Vila at least 50 times in the last 10 years and I never stopped by the Le Cafe du Village. I am so upset for what I have missed for so many years. Best place in Vila to drink, eat, relax and also cool down the heat jumping directly from the restaurant waterfront terrace into the crystal water.... More

We ate at about 10 restaurants in our week in Port Vila, and this was the only one we returned to. The setting was lovely, the food was innovative and delicious, the prices were right. Try the chocolate fondue!

We had lunch and enjoyed it so much that we went back for dinner. Staff very friendly and had remembered us by name. Lovely manager came to chat and check if our food was to our liking. Cocktails enjoyable and food tasty and well presented. View across the lagoon by moonlight was magnificent!

The food was just great (3/4 meals, the pasta dish just didn't quite blend well - the flavours weren't quite right). The outlook is stunning and the staff were lovely. A great place to go for a quiet Sunday lunch.

Right off the busy main road down down a narrow alley the whole of Port Villa harbor opens up. Complemented with some great food and service this was a brilliant family evening meal

Dropped in to pass on greetings and stayed for lunch - a delicious seafood chowder. Staff were friendly and service was excellent. We'll be back again.
