“Island Night”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

We headed over to Erakor for their Island Night VT3950/person. Food included a Melanesian feast of steak , chicken wings, whole snapper, stew & a variety of vegetable dishes from eggplant to sweet red peppers to kumala to a stewed green leaf in coconut dish that reminded me of taro leaves I've had in other Pacific destinations. All food was tasty & well prepared against a backdrop of lapping waves, kava ceremonies, singing, dancing & arguably the best fire dancing show I've ever seen! Drinks weren't extortionate though cocktails took a while so we ended up ordering an ice bucket full of Coronas. Best moment: watching half the group jump on their chairs when a tiny sea black & white snake wriggled from the water. Would happily recommend!

“Only restaurant worth visiting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2013

Fantastic food. Only restaurant worth eating at. Went twice and all meals were fantastic! Service was super slow and with kids this is not good but if you are in no rush then great. Steak great and specials also great. Definelty visit here.

“Incredible experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2013

My girl friend and I visited Vanuatu for 10 days. Having eaten out every night of our trip, we experienced many fine restaurants that Efate has to offer. Undoubtedly topping the chart has to be Aqua on Erakor. Exceptional food, quality service, great atmosphere and all on a beautiful island paradise.

“Fabulous atmosphere and views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2013

We visited Aqua twice during our stay in Vanuatu and it was lovely both times. The eye fillet was small but delicious however my husband's rump was quite tough. The menu we viewed from the bar was different (in the main course meats) to what we were handed when we sat down, so we had to start again with our selections. The staff are very friendly and the management is good. It wasn't our best meal in Vanuatu but you can't really beat that beautiful view of Erakor Lagoon.

“Great Location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

Went to Erakor for a few cocktails and a meal. Food quite pricey for what you got. Was not too hungry so had entrees only. Filled a gap, but nothing spectacular. Lovely spot, table on deck by the water, watching the fish swim around the the cruise ship leaving out at sea. Service okay.
