Ahhhh, cofffffeeeeee....

I know, it is now February and I am still writing about our cruise way back in July 2015 but we did so many things I just had to keep writing about them. After docking in Port Villa we checked out the Portside markets, which is a must and then headed to town on one of the small boats as... read more

We have been to Le Tentation for coffee a couple of times whe. We go to Vanuatu. We used to go there when it used to be Rossi's for the views and convenience to the town centre. Rossi's is gone and the new owners have renovated to a high standard, but I find the coffee not that good and neither... More

Laid back, but friendly service and good food made this a great find for us. We were almost going to give up on finding somewhere for lunch after stopping at one spot in the main st charging AU$10 for a bowl of chips, but then we found this place. It was basically empty because it was getting late for lunch.... More

Located in the centre of town close to the post office. Nice views. Had a great breakfast on our first visit but the second visit for dinner was poor & the food was very bland.

Very good coffee, well priced menu and central to the center of Port Vila. The restaurant has a grassed area outside for children to access and picnic.

So after you have duty freed fung kuei, duck down the side street to La Tentation for a relaxing view and friendly welcome. Although we didn't eat it, having seen the seafood platter including fresh lobster, it looked amazing. They offer 10000 vatu lunch specials, but we just settled for a bowl of chips and two pretty good cocktails and... More

Modern establishment on the waterfront. Great sea breezes and shelter in the afternoon by plenty of palm trees. Fusion menu which has something for everyone. Free wifi attracts a lot of "one cup" visitors, but plenty of room.

Situated on the waterfront this restaurant offers a partial view of the sea. The food on offer a lunch time is reasonably good and the place is clean and efficiently run. (It also has a very clean loo...which was a priority for me as we were just about to go out on a long trip. You do have to ask... More

A nice pretentious restaurant which has gulped up a bit of the harbour to ensure diners are protected from the passing locals. Food expensive, served in the latest fashion but presented little value for the price. The only reason to eat here is for good old colonial style bragging rights.

We have been to Port Vila 7 times and had not eaten at La Tentation before. We were after a bit of lunch and it is a very nice looking restaurant so we decided to try them out. They do have lunch specials for 1000vt but none were appealing so we just went for steak sandwiches. All I can say... More
