I had lunch at the Aviat and the service was fast and efficient. The meal was delicious and at K45 for lobster, it was also excellent value.

Had a very disappointing lunch here. Went for the much-hyped lobster and it was a serious error. The lobster was a tiny portion and they had sabotaged it with some weird 'cheese' sauce which looked and tasted unappetising.

The lobsters here are fantastic. Priced at only K60 for a substantial amount of lobster you can't go wrong. My favourite is the sambal but all are good.

Lovely setting under the mango tree outside however with no breeze or fans it was stifling hot and sweaty. The service was slow to begin with but then our dedicated bar tender turned out to be excellent. The food from the restaurant is always excellent ie hot fresh and arrives quickly. Altogether another pleasant evening enjoying friends company

The Aviat serves good food at reasonable prices and has comfortable areas both inside and outside to eat. Overall its one of the better places in Moresby for a night out.

I was taken to the Aviat Club by a member whilst visiting Port Moresby. If you enjoy tennis, pool or a drink - the club facilities are great but I guess the bottom line is you need to be signed in by a member.

Description
Technically a club but someone may sign you in if you are tidy.It is pretty loose in PNG regarding menmbership,so long as you are tidy and polite.The Sambal Lobster woooooow I have never had anything as good.Old and a bit threadbare this club is a place to chill out ....and of course partake of the best Sambal lobster in the universe.
