I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Port Vila, the food is consistently great and the portions are very generous. The staff are amazing and so friendly. Some times you will catch one of the staff doing some accoustic regae covers of well known songs and it adds to the atmosphere. We stayed on Erakor for 10 days... More

Food was first class, better than any other food in town and with a beautiful vista! We cancelled other reservations to dine back at aqua. The chef and staff really look after you and made our stay very special. Don't miss out on this one!

We usually have a meal at Aqua on each visit to Vanuatu but this time left quite disappointed. We like the atmosphere and being able to feed the fish that come into the spot lights from the deck but the food was very average. Example: the Reef & Beef which was described as eye filet with prawns and scallops was... More

Tyrone Mann and his clever team cook up a storm in the kitchen to provide you with some of the tastiest meals around using the organic produce available in Vanuatu. The atmosphere and picturesque views are the icing on the cake. The restaurant staff are friendly and always happy to help. I highly recommend a visit to Aqua if you're... More

Erakor Island at sunset is magical. You can paddle in the lagoon, sip a cocktail, or just sit on Aqua's desk and watch the sun go down over the reef. We dined here twice in January 2014 and had previously eaten here in 2012. Both times we came for the view but on our most recent visit I noticed a... More

My friends and I all found that our dinner was flavorless. The restaurant is right on the lagoon and has an incredible view for sunset.

Fantastic food. Only restaurant worth eating at. Went twice and all meals were fantastic! Service was super slow and with kids this is not good but if you are in no rush then great. Steak great and specials also great. Definelty visit here.

My girl friend and I visited Vanuatu for 10 days. Having eaten out every night of our trip, we experienced many fine restaurants that Efate has to offer. Undoubtedly topping the chart has to be Aqua on Erakor. Exceptional food, quality service, great atmosphere and all on a beautiful island paradise.

We visited Aqua twice during our stay in Vanuatu and it was lovely both times. The eye fillet was small but delicious however my husband's rump was quite tough. The menu we viewed from the bar was different (in the main course meats) to what we were handed when we sat down, so we had to start again with our... More
