A fun night with fabulous food

Everyone in our group that visited The War house raved about their meals, the fun hostess, the great service, the awesome vibe - top place - we loved it so much we visited twice as the meals well priced and were massive (the ribs were like out of The Flinstones) It was a rocking little place!

We called in to have lunch. Ribs were great but quite expensive once price was converted over. Hard to enjoy your meal with people smoking around you. Maybe next time we will try for dinner

A must visit to this old fashion saloon bar in Vanuatu. The service was excellent, meals fantastic (make sure you go with an empty belly though as they are huge). The owner was very welcoming and made sure we had a great time. The staff couldn't do enough for our party of 13 people. Love it, Love it, Love it..... More

Tucked in a corner away from Downtown Vila is a little slice of Americana. Upon arriving, we were greeted with smiling faces and I was transported back to a Southwestern US roadhouse. The service was prompt and friendly. The menu was a little limited, but offered a good variety of TexMex fare at a reasonable price. They have a good... More

Friends and family went for dinner, all meals were great except for the beef ribs. 1kg of ribs, 200g of meat, full of fat. Steak really good. Chicken bombers awesome, chicken stuffed with jalapeno mixture, loved it. Pepper sauce for steak a bit weak. Mexican food served also. great service. Had shooters, glass was a bit tiny, half nips in... More

I decided to use one of those coupons in the booklet I received at my hotel (Chantilly's), which offered a free margarita for any main meal. It was lunchtime, so I opted for the half rack of pork ribs, and it came fast and was delicious. The margarita hit the spot, too. I'll definitely go back, to try one of... More

A late lunch at this place was so wonderful. If I remember correctly, I ordered a medium-cook big-size steak which they called "Texas" something and it was so great. Big dish with plenty of sides such as fries and mash potato served with huge piece of beef. Troy, one of owners of the War Horse Saloon knows how to operate... More
