The restaurant is just on the waters edge and you're free to go for a bit of a swim or snorkel before or after lunch, the seafood is all fresh and you can even choose the fish that you want. Food servings are very generous and the bar is well stocked. It has a nice laid back, easy going tropics... More

Great location. The seafood chowder was heaven in a bowl. The burger was enormous. Should have just stuck to the chowder and had the burger on another occasion not both together, just too much.

The Wahoo Bar & Restaurant attracts the local expats, the view is great, the service friendly & the food & drinks well priced. A little way out of Vila, but a nice drive or bus trip. Definite arvo relax spot, have a look :)

The seafood is the highlight of the restaurant but they also have great steak and on the day we went there was a delicious goat curry on... More
