Amazing location, great views.

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... read more

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

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

Very nice and breezy setting with open views of Port Vila Harbour. Very spacious and clean. Service prompt and presentation of food exceptional. menu a bit pricey but prove to be popular with the amount of people there

This restaurant tucked away off the main street, right on the waterfront is a lovely surprise. The location is beautiful overlooking Irriki Island and the bay, an amazing place to watch the sunset. The meal was beautiful, I had the Fish Chowder which was amongst the best that I have had at any restaurant, all of the meals were really... More
