Superb restaurant - world quality chef. We stayed at this Hotel and enjoyed several lunches and dinners at Crystals Restaurant and each meal did not disappoint. I particularly enjoyed the dinner specials each night - Curry, Middle Eastern, Seafood, Sunday Roast to name a few. All meat and fish is sourced locally therefore each meal was just so flavoursome and... More

I cannot speak highly enough of this restaurant. The staff are so accommodating and the food is of a very high standard. Eye fillet is the best I have tasted! Would definitely be back if I'm in Port Vila again!

We simply had to go back. Fine dining somewhat overpriced (typical of Vanuatu) but brilliant food. Just cannot go past the mini chicken rolls. For main the prawn and lobster tortellini is the best ever. More like a mini dim sim packed with seafood presented in a rich tomato and pea sauce. Absolutely Devine. Really efficient staff. Top class venue

This restaurant is part of the Grand Hotel and Casino. A great place for lunch. Good service, nice food. Good value. We had a cocktail and lunch overlook the harbour. Four our of 5 rating.

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

Good Hotel, Restaurant and Casino Myself and two friends dined at The Grand Hotels, Crystals Restaurant recently while staying at a resort in Eratap. We had lunch one day and the food was really nice but we found the staff were a little vague when we questioned them about a couple of items on the menu. We also decided to... More
