This is a wonderful spot for a fabulous night out. It was windy so we had to sit inside but it is fresh and bright. The entrees were delicious, and the mains steak and fish curry I would both recommend. The staff were lovely with...More

We popped and had a drink while we waited for our takeaway meal. It was quite busy and setting of chairs from the roadside right back to the beach area. Our meal was tasty but quantity small. Thank you

Over a number of years, this is just our fourth visit to Vaima - we have never been able to share the enthusiasm of previous posters regarding service and we have always had a problem regarding the attitude of the owners towards their staff. On...More

Beautiful location on the beach or if you prefer, inside with the lagoon view. Make reservations for the sunset or you may be disappointed in the times that are available. If you want to eat a nice meal on the sand, this is the place...More

We love our food and were really impressed. The staff are all attentive and friendly. The owner gave us a lift home and was a very friendly nice man. We had a table on the beach which was just lovely especially with the full moon!!

Even with a late call they squeezed us in at 8. I had a beautiful pair of seared tuna steaks with piping hot vegetables, pawpaw salsa, lime and salt. It was divine. I noticed they took care to clean not only tables but chairs as...More

We dined at Vaima's 2 times while staying just a few doors away. The first time was out of convenience due to the restaurants proximity to our villa. The second time was due to a great first time experience. The restaurant has a lovely, warm...More

We are situated right on the beach. Imagine sitting on the beach with the sun setting, sipping your favourite cocktail and enjoying some of the best cuisine on the island - how romantic! We also offer a pizza take away service - forget the cooking - enjoy our pizza in your room/hotel or just sit on the beach with your feet in the water enjoying the food. We can cater for small private functions and weddings. Look forward to seeing you at the Vaima. We recommend that families book between 5.30 and 6.30 pm.
