Fabulous place for some food and drinks late afternoon. Service was average, but the sashimi was amazing.

Back home again after a quick trip over the hill to Wahoo Bar for lunch today. Coconut prawn curry was well-spiced, generous and delicious. The water and islands view was as stunning as ever.

I cancelled my original review because, as the manager/owner quite correctly pointed out, I had shown my visit in the wrong month. We visited in late February but the place was closed. However, that was no great loss as we simply went next door to Francesca's Ristorante which I rate far more highly. We went back to the Wahoo in... More

Interesting and yummy food in a simple but gorgeous location, sit on the deck and drink in the view. Well worth the drive over the hill.

Our friends took us touring around the Island and our halfway stop was at the Wahoo. This is Jims favourite spot and we can see why, the location and setting is nothing short of spectacular. A most relaxing atmosphere right on the ocean. The day we were there was on mothers day and the staff looked after the ladies with... More

We had a superb meal on Sunday. The new specials are delicious. Fantastic spot for lunch and the team looked after us well. Nice to see you all and thanks for the free cocktail (with Hotspots voucher)!

The sunset was gorgeous from this place, along with some very nice cocktails and lovely food. Also, can I just say that this place took relaxing to a whole new level. We had the fish, which was cooked perfectly and enough to serve a whole family.

This place is a must when you are on holidays in Vanuatu. We came out for lunch and it was amazing. The fish was caught that morning. I have never had snapper taste so good and the tuna, well even the kids ate it. We came back to Wahoo again a few days later and the quality was the same... More
