You really have to see the place to understand, but it's uniquely decorated, and a lot of fun to look around. Great atmosphere.

Port Vila is full of restaurants charging Australian prices for not that much. The Warhorse is a wonderful and timely change! The ribs were huge and just delicious. The vegetarian fujitas, sirloin steak and the poulet fish special were all great. The prices were sensible and the service was all that one could ask for. Don't go to a restaurant... More

This seems to be the new "in' place in Port Vila. It has just moved closer to town. First class interior decorating. Very friendly bunch of people I only had a drink, not a meal so I can't comment on the food. If you want to mix with the expat locals this is a great place to go

We love going to the War Horse Saloon. The food is very yummy and great value for money. The microbrewery beers are delicious and unusual. There is always a fun atmosphere. Great place for a quite dinner in the dining room or a few social beers and a 'pub feed' in the bar. The owner is very funny as well!

It's hard to come by a cheap meal in Vanuatu - not that we're complaining - we ate some of the most delicious food in Vanuatu during our trip in February. However if you are looking for the best value, most delicious steak and ribs, you cannot go past War Horse Saloon. I had the "Cowgirl" steak - more than... More

An American themed restaurant in Vila. Went there for the ribs & was not disappointed at all. The Beef Ribs were succulent & dripped with smoky flavour. Portions are large American style. The chips were excellent too & done very crisply. The beer is brewed on premises & is worth trying. Service is very good. The restaurant could do with... More

Thank you for visiting our restaurant and Texas Saloon while you were in Port Vila. We are aware of the lighting issue and I agree it does seem a bit flat. We like to be as "green" as possible but the options for lighting are not great in Vanuatu! We are looking for a softer energy efficient bulb for our... More

I regularly visit this great establishment for a bite to eat and a beer on the way home from work. One could say I'm a regular. However be aware on every second Friday night,If it's fine and not raining, a group of hot rod enthusiasts take over and meet up. They apparently have rights to preferred parking and run of... More
