This restaurant was recommended to us and it was a great disappointment. Went with kids. They ate but our meals just didn't turn up. We left after 90mins having not eaten!

The food here is excellent. We ate here 3 years ago and again this trip and it is consistently good. Service is very good too. Will go back again when next in Vila.

The food was so fresh and delicious. Although late at night the outside eating area was still lovely with a cool breeze. Staff were friendly and welcoming.

Really good Chinese. Anything with beef is simply yum. Great local produce. Value for money. Terrific view. Same owner for years. Locals love it!

When we discussed going to a Chinese restaurant in Port Vila, I was skeptical (we live in Perth West Australia - where there are great Asian restaurants). Everything from arrival to departure was more than I expected. The food was outstanding, different to what we have had previously but very very good. The drinks list was reasonable, the wine was...

Wanted to try the coconut crabs since it is a famous local delicacy and not easily available elsewhere. Called the restaurant and spoke to the owner and she confirmed they have live coconut crabs ( dead or frozen ones are useless for Chinese cooking ). It was well cooked and quite tasty although expensive. Service was good and washed down... More

We have been here several times, we had decided to go Thai, but to our dismay found it to be closed, so as we were so close, decided on Harbour View. The only problem I find with most Chinese Restaurants, HV as well, is the food is very salty. We would like the spicy dishes, hotter. The 2 spicy dishes... More
