called in most days for coffee (and some times cake) because of the view and internet use. Lovely coffee, great atmosphere. I had lunch one day - the club sandwich and certainly very tasty. I would certainly go back - at any opportunity

Often have coffee here in the morning as its such a great location but have given up eating here (have only tried at breakfast or lunch) as its pretty mediocre. Coffee is not great but passable (who does great coffee in Port Vila anyway?). Wish they did decent food as I would eat here more often (plenty of positive reviews... More

I celebrated my Birthday at La Tentation, the staff did a wonderful job dressing up the table for my birthday, a surprise indeed. We had a variety of meals, I loved the Coconut Prawns for entree which were cooked to perfection. For the main meal I chose steak and lobster both of which I really enjoyed. My husband chose other...

My husband and I visited La Tentation and were seated at a table overlooking the waterfront and we were also able to watch the cruise liner leave the harbour. The staff were delightful and very helpful, our cocktails were well made and had a good kick to them, but the meal of grilled wahuwahu with pawpaw sauce and the stuffed... More

Fantastic service from Massie our waiter. Food was great and reasonably priced. I had garlic prawns for my main and was told that because the dish was so popular that they had run out of rice. I was given other options to have - mash or chips. My husband had the steak with lobster tail and said that it was... More

We came to Vila on a cruise ship and had planned on having lunch at La Tentation. Sadly the water taxi driver told us it was shut for renovations. Accidentally, after we'd already eaten, we discovered it was open so decided that an "after lunch" lunch was in order! The staff were very friendly and the view is wonderful. There... More

What a great restaurant. Best pot of tea! Fab pancakes. The staff are delightful, so gracious and they remember returning customers which is really endearing. Lovely views onto the marina. Well worth to kick back and soak up the port vila atmosphere!

We are vegan, so we know we are the minority, but when we saw the menu here we were thrilled...it had both vegan and vegetarian options listed on the menu. Sadly, that was the end of the thrill. The meal was poorly made, lacked any consideration of flavours and was clearly not meant to be ordered by anyone. Sweet potato... More
