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 location, fabulous people You feel as though you are away from everything. If the weather is raining in Port Vila head to Wahoo & pack the sun screen as you snorkel and relax in the sun on the deck. Staff are so friendly & helpful. This little gem is a must

Enjoyed a lovely lunch in lovely surroundings. The food was excellent, between us we had a mixture of seafood, including lobster, and steak. Setting is lovely and we wished we had taken our swimming gear to be able to snorkel of the beach, water was so clear. Anyhow, staff very friendly and helpful and definitely a place to consider visiting.

This is such a beautiful part of Vanuatu and we are so glad we got our Van driver to take us around the Island which takes 3 hours but with our bunch of tourists took 8. The food was great we only had fish and chips, burgures and chips and Wahoo and salad and of course drinks, but all fabulous!!

I was looking forward to having lunch here after all the good reports I had had from fellow travellers. I have to say I have mixed feelings about this restaurant, the location is superb, with wonderful views but the food is a bit hit and miss. I can highly recommend the fresh fish, whole snapper was fresh and well cooked.... More

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.
