We stay here for a afternoon and have the lunch special, unfortunately we want the Fish & Chip it's sold out, we did try some other things. The potion is good and value for money, the staff is nice and good service. We enjoy the time to stay here :)

Emily's Cafe I feel was the best value meal by far in all my travels to Vanuatu, their 1000 Vt specials are excellent.

Thank you for the great review! Its always lovely to have families and watch the children enjoy the playground. We do pride ourselves on staff friendliness and good size meals at reasonable prices....children can be fussy, so I'm glad that they too enjoyed the food. Maybe see you back here on your next visit?

Thank you so much for your review - the burgers are a favourite here! I am happy to hear you re visited and found 'consistency' in the meals as is sometimes hard to get here in Vanuatu. Be sure to come in on your next visit Regards Bob & Emily More

Emily's is a great spot for a quiet meal with good prices and good quality food. They make a great Big Fala burger and I love the noodle dishes. We ate here twice last week for dinners, it is consistent with the dishes offered. We will be back again :)
