Had an iced coffee while I waited for the taxi to pick me up after visiting the handicraft market. Very quiet when I visited, service ok, pleasant place. Great coffee!

Unfortunately we did not enjoy our meal at the Saloon. Both the burger and nachos were tasteless. The service was good.

Service was outstanding, food very tasty and a nice place to watch the world go by pit the front. We had pork ribs to share, then a burger and enchilada. Large serves and prompt service. Would definitely go back.

The atmosphere at the War Horse Saloon is fun but it is expensive and the food wasn't that great. I had a quesadilla that was a little oily and my co-workers were satisfied but not raving about their food.

Disappointed in our dinner at the war horse. Burgers and fries was the most appetizing. The ribs which come so highly recommended need to be cooked longer. Service was brash and forgetful. Be careful because at the end of your dinner there is a 4% credit card fee!!! Absolutely absurd.

At first I wasn't sure about a US style ribs and Mexican place n Port Vila. However was I wrong. Ronald runs a great casual establishment where the ambience and price really works. If you want a relaxed western type meal this is the place to go.

Great food , cold beer. Great location but not sure how crowded it would be when the boat comes in. Otherwise all good with lots of memorabilia.

Good place to sit and have a beer after visiting the handicraft market. Sit outside or inside and enjoy the local beers

I'm from Canada and can say this food is the real North American deal! The ribs were so delicious. It has an American style bar with lots of beer. If you want the American experience then this is the place.
