Description: A great place to hang out for the day. The Beach Bar is famous for its wood fire pizzas, but offers a large choice of alternatives as well. The kids just love playing on the beach with all the free water toys while Mum & Dad relax in the beergarden. Sit back and enjoy the stunning sunsets over Mele Bay whilst enjoying a cold beer or glass of wine. Keep an eye out for the special "Friday Night Fire Dancing" evenings, Tuesday Movie nights on Port Vilas biggest screen, right on the beach and Sunday Sessions with our great new show "Sunday Sunset Circus"

This restaurant is worth visiting just to see the fire show. The dancers that put on the show are very talented and very fit! We had booked a table through our resort and when we got there they had put us on a table with another family staying at our resort. I think this is a great idea as we... More

During our stay we had 2 dinners and 1 lunch here. Food is fairly standard with the Pizzas as the best option though the burgers are also good. On Friday and Sunday nights they are very busy with the Fire Show and Circus but to get the best view for the shows it is better to sit on the sand... More

Located right on the beach at Mele Bay, this open restaurant has excellent pizzas. A limited choice of other dishes are also available. The Friday night fire show and Sunday night circus are well worth seeing, especially for young children. Get there early (at least an hour before sunset) and get a front row table for the free shows The... More

This is just the greatest little teaser for tropical life. A very basic bar. No frills, basic furnishing, no walls, just a roof, outlook over the water. Burgers and other basic cafe foods, cocktails and beer. Service is good but you are in Vanuatu, be patient and have fun along with the staff. Watch the cab/bus drivers play pool have... More

We were staying at mele and visited a few times on various times, if you are going to see the fire show it would pay to book a table, they also have movie nights, great pizza and other bar meals

Great relaxed bar with a variety of bar food, burgers and wood-fired pizzas. Friendly service. We got the garlic bread which was a garlic pizza - delicious flavours. We also got a meatlovers pizza to share (pizza's are 11" so ample to share) which had lots of toppings and tasted great. One Tuesday nights all pizzas are 1000 vatu each... More
