Description: Built in true Vanuatu style, with a cone Natangora roof and an open air deck for fresh dining, Oyster Island Restaurant is renowned for serving some of the best food that Santo has to offer. Light and modern dishes with a South-Pacific influence are offered, using the freshest organic ingredients sourced from local markets and farms. Highlights of our menu include the freshest Oysters in Santo, which during harvest season are collected daily of course! Our lobster, crab, and poulet fish dishes are second to none in the region. We serve only 100% Organic Santo beef, which is world renowned for its tenderness and succulent flavour. Other favourite dishes include Spiced Coconut Prawns, Lobster, and Lime Pan-Fried Scallops. Our delectable dessert menu is the final temptation of the evening. As with everything on Oyster Island, our dining times are relaxed therefore we do not have a set time for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Your meal will be prepared for you when you require it, and a cooked breakfast menu is available throughout the day. Our staff would be pleased to offer you room service if you wish to have your meal served on your private waterfront balcony.

“Our Honeymoon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2013

WE spent 2weeks on oyster on our honeymoonThe bungalows we stayed in was beautiful,secluded and very clean.The managers Olle and David would catch up with you everyday making sure everything was ok.Plenty to do there with snorkling tours,trips to the blue hole,you can get a picnic lunch and be dropped at a secluded island for the day.We hired a kayak for the time we were there which we kept tied up to the bungalow so we could take off in it whenever we pleased.The food was beautiful,friendly staff and the snorkling is great.Lots of different fish,sea snakes and turtles to sea.We even spotted a dugong.You could join in on the daily volleyball game which the staff get together and play.We loved it so much where returning next year....great place

“Sunday Buffet..Good Food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

The restaurant was crowded for sunday buffet. The customers included scantily clad swimmers from the beach and vacationers from the bungalows.

Nothing fancy but the food was good with a selection including 3 meats and about 10 sides. Felt almost like a church potluck with a few mystery dishes.

“Bon Appetit!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

The food here was interesting, well presented and definitely good value for money. The pizzas are some of the best I have ever eaten and and the Cheeky Mango Chicken and Santo Blanket were tasty, succulent and thoroughly enjoyable. The only variable seems to have been the change of chef at the end of the week of our stay, after which the food was not piping hot when it reached our table, something which my wife and I had remarked upon as being a real plus at the beginning of the week.

“good”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

well worth the trip, good staff and lovely location. would have loved to have done one of the boat trips from this location but no time left. not sure how welcoming they were to the locals we had with us. we were paying for all, so service should have been the same. n.b: this is a historical review - things may have changed.
