Get the buffalo wings or pork rib tips for something small, or any of the Mexican dishes for something more substantial. Be there on a Friday night to experience the night life of Port Vila.

This used to be a highlight of any visit to Vanuatu, these days it is a relic of it's former self. It would appeal to someone who is into an American based theme. Beer was cold, staff were friendly enough.

We really enjoyed our meal here, after a lot of what we would call average food else where on the island we were glad to find this place. Beef ribs were recommended by the waitress and were a good choice, also had a pizza that was good, lots to choose from, good drink selection and cold beer. Not right in... More

We'd walked up from Port Vila to visit the Handicraft Market and stopped into the Saloon for a late lunch. We both chose burgers. When they arrived they were 'huge', with homemade meat patties, just what we needed. The young lady behind the bar was very friendly and approachable. A neat dining experience.

Great place to eat. Good service, and food is awesome. Close to everything right in town. We spent another week here in Port Vila in June and found it a great place to eat. Top marks War Horse Saloon.

Taste wise, it was quite a disappointment to us, despite much publicity about its ribs! Having said this, if you are a meat fan, this place do serves large portions of meat.
