Consistently good food

Living in Port Vila this has become our go to restaurant for a great meal, gorgeous harbour views and lovely hosts. Food is usually always well prepared and tasty. It's pretty hard to beat their bangers and mash or their steak and kidney pie. You won't go home hungry with these two dishes!

Like stepping straight into Europe, this charming little cafe at the end of town had good menu options and friendly service. Menu looked very appealing, and although we only snacked and had a few drinks, it was well worth a seat at the waters edge to take in the activity around.

We stopped in for a coffee and we went back for dinner. On the waterfront across from Irriki Island. The staff were great and the food excellent.

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
