We took our 'Free Beer' from our boarding pass there. Actually it is buy one and get one free! The beer was OK but not special. The pizza we ordered was small, no other way to put it. It was acceptable but pricey. However, the Creme Brulee was so good we went back another day for more! Rated as safe... More

The best pizza and loved being able to still watch the netball and rugby from home over delish cocktails.

One of my favorite spots for a beer. I haven't eaten here yet but the food always looks delicious. We sit upstairs at sunset and watch the water, it's lovely. Big screens for sports fans upstairs too!

Really enjoyed the beer, cider and food at this establishment. I myself drank cider which was some of the best I've ever had, and my friends tried the beer which was also enjoyable. We ate burgers and sandwhiches here on our first day in Port Vila and found it to be of a high standard compared to many other places... More

After a rather long day walking around the shops, we decided to grab a beer at The Brewery. We had been given a voucher when we cleared customs at the airport on arrival in Vanuatu for "A free Nambawan beer when you buy a Nambawan beer" (worded exactly as it appears on the voucher) to use at a number of...

Thank you for your comments regarding our voucher, it is very simple you buy a beer and the next you buy is for free, therefore if there is 2 people you both buy your first beer and your second beer is free. I hope that clears it up for you More

I loved this place. You can sit out in front of the bar and enjoy the passing traffic, pedestrain and other wise, and just chill out! Such a great idea to have your own little brewery/eating house in a spot like Port Vila. The beer isn't exactly cheap, like around 400 to 600 Vatu for a Schooner, but given the... More

We have been to the Brewery Bar a number of times, but not since June 2012 and that was just for a drink. The place may have changed hands since then which may account for the less than good reviews or it was just a bad day. Things like that happen. We have never had a bad experience at the... More

Overpriced, you never see the locals eating/drinking there, which for me is usually an indication that its not very good. Ordered a BBQ platter, what we got wasn't really what was described on the menu, meat was very dry and the chicken still had these hair things sticking out of the skin.

Over-priced and under-performing. No prizes for the beer - suggest you stick with Tusker. Must admit the pizza I had was ok but my partner was very disappointed with her considerably more expensive meal. High marks for imaginative creative writing on the menu. Rude owners don't give a damn - they live there whereas you are just passing through. If... More

We were looking forward to eating here, however we were disappointed.
