A walk into the movies - saloon style with chic. Good homebrew, nice food, great staff and of course Boots doings his trick.

“If you have nothing else to do”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

Dont think it was worth the trip out of Vila, food was OK but nothing to rave about. Not sure about the animal roaming around the place, we went on a Saturday night and there were onlt two other tables being used. Might be better if it was full. Service was excellent. Very quirky not sure about the Gorilla on the couch or the Kangaroo on the loo.

“Terrific!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

I loved the War Horse Saloon. Donna is great for a chit chat and Lyn the waitress is lovely! Food is just to die for...make sure you are really hungry because the meals are HUGE! Will definately be going back this holiday!

“Cats and Dogs”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012

We went here a couple of times. Sheena the bar manager was awesome. Beef ribs were great, pork ribs okay. The other food we had was good. Really interesting place to visit and don't forget to check out the ladies loos.

“Im in Vanuatu NOT America!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012

This place is in the middle of nowhere and we only went to it because another family from our resort were going and we thought it would be nice to go together.The advertisement said it had games (eg Wii etc) for the kids to play while waiting for their meal - well it did not! They state they have the best burger in town - I beg to differ. We should have just jumped back in the bus when we saw no other diners were in the restaurant. In fact we were the only customers the entire time we were there. The staff are friendly enough but I can not see this place being around much longer. Their was a stuffed Kangaroo (well that is what it looked like) sitting on one of the ladies toilet seats and the owners dressed the 2 dogs that were roaming around the restaurant in hats and sungrasses!!! If anything, we had a laugh at their expense and drowned our sorrows with Kava from a local village on the way home! I would not go back their again!!
