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... read 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

Having sailed the breadth of the Pacific from French Polynesia to Australia I have to say that Vanuatu beef is amongst the best I have ever eaten. Clean, locally grown, grass fed organically grown meat -- almost anywhere you eat beef in Vanuatu you're going to enjoy it. This place goes the extra mile, however -- one of the best... More

This was my husband and my family's favorite restaurant in Port Vila for both the lively bar and the quiet eating area with the best BBQ anywhere in the world. His last night there, he and I did not leave brawling but rather happy - only to have him die in accident in our home. Ignore the two recent posts... More

My wife, myself and my 11 month old daughter had lunch here. Buffalo wings and pulled pork burgers, which were really quite tasty. We sat outside on the verandah as inside had quite loud music playing (even though it was lunchtime). They had a highchair but it was broken. Service was good. We ended up chatting with one of the...
