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.

We came to La Tentation with the staff team from our non-profit organisation for desserts and drinks. The waiter seated us at a nice outside table. We sat down and he brought menus, and then I told him that we were just going to be ordering desserts and drinks. He became annoyed and told us that we weren't allowed to... More

Everything was perfect. Four of us ordered four different meals. We ate in silence because it was so good. All of not wanting to share our food but needing each other to taste it so they could know how good it was. If its a special occasion this is the place to go. Not cheap but not outrageous prices and... More

Wow! If the spectacular bayside view isn't enough to make you want to pull up a chair and take the weight of while, whilst the cool ocean breeze blows away to heat and humidity, then the Tuna Tataki should swing it! It was simply the best. Freshly off the hook tuna, expertly 'cooked' with a perfectly light and zesty dipping... More
