Filled with very noisy , very, rude , swearing, drinking and smoking ex pats and locals. Food was terrible, not cooked to order and expensive for what it was. Bill was wrong and they were not happy to take the voucher from the booklet you get with discounts etc in it. Avoid at all costs

My family enjoys ribs and I can safely say that the beef ribs we had were one of the best. We ordered two full racks for 3 of us and could not finish them not due to lack of trying. Service was friendly and prompt. I would highly recommend them.

I have never said this in a review but this place has the cleanest and loveliest ladies loo in the world. The Margaritta's are huge and delicious, I will post a photo. The ribs weren't juicy with chunks of meat and the chicken fajitas were very oily but yummy. The Onion Rings were delcious. I highly recommend the Margaritta's. Funky... More

Had dinner here tonight with my husband and 4 year old son and it was great! We were greeted as we got out of our taxi and were really looked after by the wait staff. The place has a casual, relaxed pub atmosphere. The food and drinks came in a reasonable amount of time. The menu has every burger you... More

This is a belated review but my wife & I experienced the fun ambience & wide selection of draught beers when we did the Taste of Vila shore tour on our South Pacific Islands cruise last August. The War Horse Saloon was one of the bars on the tour. We didn't get to eat there, but we thoroughly enjoyed our... More

Took visiting family including 3 teenagers here for dinner last night. There was 6 of us. Worst experience ever in Vanuatu. Waited over an hour for our meals and it wasn't busy. No one came near us for all that time until the end when we had to call staff over several times to ask how long out meals would... More

It is decorated in a saloon style and the food is predominately Mexican and American burgers, steaks, ribs etc. I had the ribs and my husband and 15 year old had chicken burgers and chips for lunch. Best ribs I have had in years and they said the burgers... More

Stopped by for a quick drink while roaming around Port Vila. The place looks like a traditional US saloon (pretty cool decor & check out all the number plates on the walls!) and offers a decent selection of drinks plus food. We have not tried their food, but some of it seemed rather pricey. Service was relaxed but friendly.

We had drinks and dinner here last night. The meals were huge. The staff are friendly and know the meaning of good service. Our waitress, Nina, was excellent and went out of her way to hail a minibus home for us.
