Breakfast was a little pricey and nothing special but the WiFi's free and the waitstaff were very patient in helping customers log-in.

My husband and I ate here twice and wish we would have found this gem earlier in our vacation. Great food at great prices.

During our stopover on our cruise, we needed the Wifi and were directed to this little place in the back of a strip center. Wifi was pretty good for these parts! But we had to buy a little something so my husband had cappuccino and the taxi driver next to me suggested the Vanilla Ice Cream. It was awesome! They... More

The upside is that you can either have free wifi if you buy lunch OR you can buy wifi ($5 for 30 minutes). The downside is that the service is slow. Sit at a table and wait. If you walk up to the counter, you may not be greeted nicely. I wasn't.

We went to this café to use the free wifi. I think it is the only place to get something to eat and drink in Vaitape. Nice little café to have a cold beer and a cocktail and have a little rest while catching up on emails.

Enjoyed the paninis for lunch. One day they were out of tomatoes but I don't think that is unusual on the island. Another place was out of fajitas and the grocery store was out of lettuce and fresh milk. It's an island, roll with it. Service was friendly and wifi available.

The food was good for a quick lunch. Free Wi-Fi helped keep in contact with family. We split the grilled cheese and ham. The fries were fantastic.

Great prices, and quality mai tai's and pina coladas. Great local beer on draft. The ahi is wonderful and fresh, wonderful flavors and service is perfect. WIFI works better than at our hotel. Our VAVAU guide told us about it.

This place was suggested by a tour operator as belonging to a friend, and we had over 4 hours to wait for a boat back to our resort, so we tried it. Big mistake. It's not much more than a dive in a run-down strip mall on the "main" muddy road. Maybe if the servers were friendly or the food... More
