The restaurant is situated overlooking Havannah Bay with casual outdoor seating under cover and access for guests to get down to the water for a swim or snorkel before lunch. Good for kids. 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

There was shade for those who had enough sun and plenty of tables in the sun also.The views from the deck were very nice. Food portions large....well what we ordered at least ( catch of the day,...

We were staying just down the road and ate here 2 times, ribs were so yummy. The second time we got a fresh crab done in Chilli sauce - it was so tasty. good drinks at good prices. also the banana fritter for dessert is a must. The BEST sunsets on the island

We shared a large coconut crab cooked two ways. Half was cooked in a creamy curry sauce and half cooked in a creamy garlic sauce. Both were delicious and the stunning views of the bay made it perfect.

Worth a visit if touring the island of Efate, away from Port Vila. This open air restaurant has a great location looking out over the sea towards Llepa and Tranquility Islands. The service is good and the quality of food excellent. We had a great lunch - even though it rained!

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
