Based on reviews on Tripadvisor, I emailed Linda (one of the owners) from Australia a couple of months before going to Vanuatu. I wanted to book a special celebratory meal for my mother on the last night we were at Port Vila.
Linda reserved the best table in the house. Right in the middle of the alfresco patio on the edge of the gorgeous bay. We arrived before sunset, as recommended by other reviewers and were rewarded by stunning views. Linda even kindly offered to take photos of the two of us so my mum has wonderful memories of her special night.
The food was great. Very fresh and contemporary cuisine. I had the prawn and avocado cocktail and mum had prawn skewers for entree. We both had the opulent fish for mains but mine was cooked in the banana leaf with coconut. Delicious.
Overall, this restaurant deserves its number one position on Tripadvisor.
Just beware that it is right out of town beyond the cruise ship terminal so a taxi will cost more than going into Port Vila if you are staying in a resort like The Holiday Inn as we did.
Thank you for a wonderful evening Linda.
