It is funny that our last memories of this building was when last in Port Vila this place was Rossy and when we can back we had to try again albeit under another name. We had a lovely dinner with the highlight being the fresh Tuna sashimi. We were looking forward to catching a fish on Nautilus in the hope... More

We ventured out of our resort for dinner on the final night of our stay on Efate to La Tentation. My wife is vegetarian so the suitable options on the menu at other restaurants (including at our resort) were limited or uninspiring, so a quick search online suggested that this place would be worth a try. And it definitely was!... More

Many of the higher qualifying restaurants in 'tripadvisor' for Vila are 'in resort'. But you don't want to eat in all the time and if you do you are missing Vanuatu. La Tentation offers good quality service and fine food and well priced. A good range of food styles and always welcoming and friendly. Right on the harbour with a... More

We went to La Tentation in July 2012 and we not very impressed... expensive, unsparing food and not particularly good service. In our most recent trip––this month––we ended up going twice. Everything seems to have changed. The menu is very interesting, with a great variety (especially for vegetarians) with some very nice aelan kae kae influences. The food was very... More

We stopped in here for a very nice fresh juice and decided to go back. It is located right on a quiet part of the main street, opposite the water. We had a really nice entree and the whole lobster as mains, which was amazing and great value. This was one of the best places we ate and I would... More

La Tentation is a real favourite of ours as the service is incredibly friendly, efficient and always good value. The restaurant is set in the little plaza next to BRED Bank and provides a fantastic outlook over the harbour in any weather. The food is always consistent and there are regular specials offered to make a nice variety. The coffee... More

Off the main street in a small court right on the waters edge, this place has great ice coffee. You can sit in the alfresco area in front of a grassed area looking out over the bay and surrounding hills. Lovely staff who greet you with a friendly smile. Recommend a visit to La Tentation while in Port Vila.
