Open 7 days for lunch, this venue is a favourite of locals and tourists looking to get out of Port Vila. Wahoo Bar is right on the water's edge at Havannah Harbour. Renowned for its fresh local seafood, prawn curry and Vanuatu's largest hamburgers, the restaurant has great views and outside seating. Visitors can swim and snorkel on site and the venue is child friendly. The Wahoo Bar is also open for sunset drinks every night and the sunsets can be quite amazing. The restaurant will stay open for dinner but prior reservations must be made.

Stopped here for a late lunch on our self-drive around the island. The harbour is very sheltered so even if the weather is crap in Port Vila it could very well be quite nice here, as it was on the day we went. Tuna sashimi was yum and you can get lobster and coconut crab if you choose. Caters for... More

Hidden away on the other side of the island. You need a good 2 hours from port vila to get there but when you do. The seafood is great and prices very reasonable . Kid friendly and quick service. After lunch you can even go snorkelling.

We visited Wahoo restaurant during an around the island tour. We were very impressed with their menu and their friendliness. Crab and lobster were available as well as huge steaks. A surprise restaurant to find halfway around the island.

We had lunch here on a Sunday during a drive around the island and left feeling very disappointed after poor service and tasteless food. First of all we were happily waiting for our lunch, enjoying the view and chatting about our upcoming stay in a locally owned bungalow, then an uneasy feeling of a lot of time passing fell on...

My wife, my 11 month old and myself had lunch here twice - once on our self-drive round island day trip and another special trip there for lunch. The first day we went they had fresh caught snapper - my wife and I shared one and it was fantastic, can't say enough about it. The other day we went was... More

Turned up at 2.30pm to order fish. The waiter started with would you like the lamb curry, its fresh. When i said no i'll be ordering fish he said they have none! A seafood reasturant with no fish! One table of six sitting behind us had just finished eating fish. My wife and I ordered the crispy calamari.It was burnt,... More

Dear Damon and Sarah We are very sorry to hear about your poor experience at the Wahoo Bar. The Wahoo Bar does pride itself as , and is primarily renown for, a fish restaurant because when the fish are biting we do serve the most beautiful fresh seafood.
