Lovely place to relax with beautiful views and yummy food

We stumbled across this lovely restaurant and it was quite lovely, especially the views! Meals were nice, a bit pricey though. There was free wifi which was great as we could get in touch with family that we hadn't while on the cruise. The menus were a littly ratty and worn (no biggy) but the... read more

Great location, friendly staff but more expensive than Sydney! A$43 (vt3500) for a relatively large meal of local food taro and sweet potatoes, would have cost a few dollars in the nearby market. Other mains A$30 on average. Pity as its one of a few with vegetarian options.

We had been recommended this restaurant so we're looking forward to our evening there. It was a weeknight and we were the only diners so felt quite lonely in this vast restaurant. Lovely location and potential but the decor was underdone. Food was quite nice but disappointed that many choices on the menu were unavailable. Was quite disappointed with the... More

Too early in this visit to say much but our several, previous visits were very happy occasions and we came direct from the ship to La Tentation.

I have always wanted to visit this restaurant. What a location over looking the harbour. I thought that as they were open a few weeks after the cyclone we would make the effort to support them. My question is why open if you are going to provide substandard food. we called in to have lunch. Decided to order chicken club... More

I had the pleasure of enjoying breakfast and dinner at La Tentation a few times on my holiday to Port Vila. La Tentation is located on the Vila waterfront close to Nambawan cafe. There's plenty of parking around. Most tables have a view straight onto the waterfront. You have the option of dining on the deck under cover or inside.... More

Terrific outlook. We sat outside on the patio which had good views over the lawns and onto the bay. You could see the cruise ship, watch the jet skis and other water sports. We had one of the lunch specials. Food was excellent and only cost 1200 vatu. Service was extremely slow but it was so relaxing just sitting and... More

If you're loking for a place to enjoy a cold drink or a coffee in the centre of Port Vila then this is a nice casual place to have it. Right on the waterfront with cool breezes and great views it is a great business meeting place as well. I always look forward to my daily cup of coffee here... More

I've eaten here twice in my two weeks in Port Vila, and will certainly make this a regular spot. I've had very enjoyable steak meals both times, but am tempted by the daily specials. Prices tend to be rather high, but solid quality and tasteful. Main down-side is it's not air-conditioned - although I manage to get a table directly... More
