We went as part of a tour of Port Vila at night, the staff were super friendly and the manager (Chris? I didn't catch his name) gave us a great meal as part of our prebooked tour. The beers they brew on site were very good, the porter had a good oat/rye flavor but we both preferred the Tex/Mex (lighted... More

One of the best kept secrets in Vila. Probably due to the fact that it's a few minutes from the town centre.Well worth the hassle, just make sure your taxi driver knows what it is and where it is before you get in. Hopefully that shouldnt be too much of an issue now that it's becoming more well known and... More

Really enjoyed our meal here. We just felt like something simple and tasty so we had hamburgers and the owners own beer, Seven Seas. The meal really hit the spot and was exactly what we felt like. This is a great place for a casual meal. Highly recommended.

I visit the War Horse regularly so it's about time for a review. The beer. I understand the beer is brewed in-house and it is very good an reminds me of beers/ales I've drunk in New Mexico, USA. I regard it as an ale rather than a lager. I think there are only two types on tap, or at least... More

The Warhorse is an odd sort of place. The surroundings show efforts to create an American West kind of feel, sadly some of the ornaments are a bit plasticky. The resulting ambiance is a wee bit confused: there's John Wayne cut outs, plastic mounted deer heads and some decently authentic old movie posters. The entrance sports a great looking covered...

Great bar on Wharf Street.....this place is decked out like an American Saloon, great music, great food and the decor is something to see. The Buffalo wings and Ribs are some of the best ive tasted. Had a great afternoon on our second last day in Vanuatu. Wish we had found this little gem earlier.

A bar full of characters but essentially great drinks and food. The buffalo wings are yum! Watch out for people grabbing wallets and bags on the outside tables though...

Had read about this restaurant in local tourist book. We thought we would try somewhere different ... it certainly was. Great movie memorabilia. Beer was cold and good. Meal was rushed we no longer finished our entree ... before the chef rang the bell for our mains. In fact he kept on ringing it, she asked if she could bring... More
