Description: Tilly's restaurant is the main restaurant of Chantilly's on the Bay hotel. It is inside the hotel building - situated out front on the water. With a diverse menu - that fits with the hotels tag line - Port Vila's best little international hotel. We like to think of Tilly's as the best place in town, with great, views, great service, great food and a great wine list. Do try us out.

“Beautiful spot! Amazing food & service, best we had in Port Villa”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2010

We were expecting Chantilly's to be a bit more pricey but it was actually more reasonable then our hotel restaurant (Sunset Bungalows) and we found it to be great value for money.
My partner and I had a table on the balcony which was beautiful! I highly recommend reserving a table outside. The staff was the best we had experienced, very friendly and helpful. They also had obvious knowledge of their product and were very prompt (unlike many places). Aru especially was very helpful, his cocktail on the menu is also very yummy.
The food itself was also amazing and we were both thoroughly impressed with the place leaving very satisfied.

“Excellent Service - Great Tapas”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2010

As we were staying at Chantillys on the Bay it was great to have a well priced restaurant with reasonably priced wine on site. I have spoken about Chantillys under Hotel Reviews. If we went out for the day and felt like something light in the evening then Tapas it was. We sometimes took a plate to our room if we were tired from a day out but otherwise it was delightful to sit on the terrace and chat with the friendly staff and other guests. As it is a boutique resort everyone chats to one another. Alan in the restaurant could not do enough for us. Add Tamanu on the Beach to a great lunch out with superb food, service and views over a pristine white beach. Give Harbour View Chinese Restaurant a miss (new owners in July with no idea how to cook. Grand Hotel Casino was also very good.

“3 day old food rehated ? Unacceptable at any price.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2010

Tilly restaurant was 3 quaters empty so we should have taken this as a sign things wouldn't be good. I had the doouble cooked pork belly. Well, it was more likely 3 times cooked, it was days old and had just been re warmed. It was dry and revolting. It was also served with an old kumara gratin. I sent the meal back and the staff apologised and said they'd give us two very good desserts to compensate. The desserts were also bad, but i didn't have the hear to say anything else. When the bill arrived the desserts and uneaten pork dish were ALL on the bill. They then took off the cost of the pork. Later that evening I felt nauseuas and unwell. I am positive it would be from the unhygenic re-heating of an old dish, unacceptable at their expensive price, unacceptable at any price.

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2010

We booked this restuarant when staying at Le Lagon and when the taxi driver came to pick us up he said you have chosen a bad restuarant there food is poison. We were then a little concerned and he said he could recommend much better places. So we trusted him and off we went. He showed us a few places that looked rather average and in the end we decided to take the risk and go to Tilly's. Best decision we ever made we sat out on the verandah over looking the lagoon in this beautiful restuarant. The manager was Australian so very easy to understand. The meals were great, service was fantastic and price was reasonable. Would highly recommend Tilly's to ther guests be aware of fake taxi drivers giving you false information. I think they get a cut if they take you to certain restuarants.
