In this overpriced country, Jill's is more reasonably priced than some. Between 800-900 Vatu for a burger - no fries. The burgers were large and tasty although they were out of tomatoes and had a funny pink sauce on them. If I went again I'd ask for ketchup . French fries were Western style and better than those we had... More

Dropped in for lunch, ordered nachos & burger, one coke = $35 husband couldn't finish his nachos. What is going on in Vanuatu, food is very expensive.

Burgers are simple but tasty and arrived quite quickly. Staff helped us find a table with a fan over it for our baby. This is the 2nd time we have been here and will definitely come back

Fresh American style burgers and great fries. Extensive selection of meals. Simple decor and can get a little hot but there are loads of fans. Very accommodating with meal modifying some of the meals and catered well for children.

I went here for a very light lunch, but ended up ordering a surprisingly large nachos dish. It tasted really good, and was accompanied by a massive salad. The staff, like most of the places I have visited in Vanuatu, are amazingly kind and courteous. The setting is enclosed but does have an open space area.

Large portions; good quality food. The Cafe is really breezy and comfortable to sit in on a hot day. Good value too even with the appalling exchange rate Vatu to sterling.

A pretty place to have a drink and some food. Wifi there and a bibliotheca where you can buy old books for 400 Vt or 200 Vt when you exchange( bring one & get one). The original Dutch lady that runs the place inserted the Dutch secret of " gezelligheid". Good coffee, food and a nice place to cool down.

We stayed in port Vila for a period of 6 weeks and Jill's ended up being a firm favourite with us! The staff were always super friendly and attentive. We particularly enjoyed the lemonade which was really refreshing on a hot day. We only wish it didn't sell out so quickly! The food is definitely comfort food - big portions,... More
