“Great Place for Value Food and excellent beer”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2014

The War Horse Saloon is a very friendly place where you can get a very large serving of scrumptious food and some really excellent beers brewed by the owner.

We enjoyed the burgers but were tempted by a lot of the menu.

The atmosphere is straight out of the western movies (with updates for TV to watch essential football matches) and somewhere you always feel you will get an honest tasty meal and friendly service.

“Such a strange place”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2014

I don't think the Saloon bar is the kind of place you go by mistake. It attracts a crowd of OZ expats, bikers and big eaters. The food is average - but the portions are huge (we shared the ribs among 3 people).

“Best Wings in the South Pacific!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2014

We were there with friends, and enjoyed an amazing "American Feast"

All my friends had ribs, though I chose 4 servings of chicken wings (buffalo wings), with their awesome blue cheese dressing (I miss the USA). It was great and then we proceeded to get slightly tipsy. Great night out!

“I just love the poppers !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2014

I visited the War Horse Saloon a few times for drinks with friends, entertainment and food. The place is amazing for its setting, very much like a Saloon from a Western movie! The food is simple but delicious and I am in love with the stuffed chillies (poppers) and the BBQ ribs, not to mention the buffalo chicken wings and all the rest. Drinks include a lovely draft Boots bear produced by a local brewery, as well as everything else at reasonable prices for a great night out, especially when live music is playing. Staff is well trained and very friendly. A unique and fun place in the heart of Port Vila. I'll be back!

“American Ribs, American Paraphernalia and a big horse on the roof”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

Friendly yes, Otto made sure every one was happy, well watered and fed. We had a game of darts, not a good game but it was fun. The place is decked out really well, with the cow hide chairs, saddle stools, and the toilets well if you just go to look at the ladies toilets it was worth the trip, they are decked out to the nine's It was a great night for Bundy lovers at 550VT a glass, some what enjoyed the meal, there was a lot of it. Beef ribs were ok, didn't fall off the bone like we were used to in America, but we didn't enjoy the pork ribs they had sort of a gamey flavour. So this was a hard one to rate, as I loved the atmosphere, but wasn't a huge fan of the food. Oh and the locals they don't know about it so it is on Wharf road, Port Villa.
