As we were staying here, breakfast was always nice and thanks to Sylvia and Erima who always greeted us with a lovely smile and asked to get our coffee. Had dinner here too, a number of times, the roast was lovely, curry nice another night, cocktails by the pool, staff always friendly and nothing was too much trouble.

I was sooo surprised by this little gem. We had our dinner plans change last minute on Sunday night.....and were wondering where on earth we would go, as so many places are closed of a Sunday. I suggested the 'restaurant at the casino', and I am so glad that we tried here. We ended up coming back again for dinner,... More

We tried Crystals a couple of years ago, the service was appalling. On that occasion there was one other couple, and four of us, we waited well over an hour to get our mains. But one could not complain about the service this time. The ladies serving were very sweet. We shared a prawn Caesar salad, which was divine. Then... More

We dined at Crystals a few times during our time in Port Vila. We had limited funds for dinner. The staff were very accommodating in allowing us to share entree size dishes. I would recommend the house made bread and beef skewers.

An older property in Port Vila but elegant and well maintained. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The food was delicious and we didn't have a very long wait for any course. Lovely view across to Irririki Island, which unfortunately isn't operational at present. The wine and cocktail list are quite small, but offer some nice options. If you are... More
