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.

Great spot for lunch

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... read more

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...

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. Unfortunately, as per the previous reviewer, you came at a time when... More

Enjoyed a nice lunch at Wahoo Bar today. Whilst they had no fresh seafood due to the storms earlier this week, we enjoyed a huge beef hamburger. It was very filling, and HUGE! The staff were helpful. The view out to Havana Harbour was divine. The only hiccup was that the Midori Splice had a touch too much alcohol. Other... More

Thank you for your great review on Trip Advisor. We apologise for the lack of seafood and appreciate your understanding that we had a close call with a cyclone which affected the seas and any chance of catching fresh fish for the past several days. Glad the hamburgers hit the spot and that you enjoyed your time with us. We... More

Expensive, poor quality, and had to return food.... not a great lunch out... The hamburger had to be returned - half cooked (and we weren't alone), and for 2200 Vatu - sadly lacking in extras... The spicy fried calamari - asked for - extra spicy - came COLD - literally - out of the fridge - albeit some pieces had... More

Wahoo is eating and drinking on a deck over the sea. Little boats anchored off the restaurant. and with a view out over the bay to Lelepe Island. You will... More
