We couldn't go past the Oxtail Soup (best ever!) and the crispy Prawn salad with Grapefruit and Avocado and hot chilli dressing - triple yum 😃 Of course, the view's not bad either and too much Pavlova was consumed. Well worth the walk from the town centre.

My husband and I had dinner here during our 5 night visit. The food was excellent as was the service. The restaurant wasn't busy the night we were there so we got a seat with a wonderful view out over the water. Would recommend

My wife and I had dinner at Tilly's last night and it was delightful. Our favourite meal throughout our time here. Staying at Iririki, it was a bit of a walk to the restaurant. We found ourselves wandering along a poorly lit, half finished path about 1km north of our drop off point. However, it turned out to be well... More

We went for lunch for my birthday and thoroughly enjoyed it. The cocktails were really good and every single meal was really delicious! Recommended.

Stopped in here twice for late breakfast and coffee. Its a really nicely laid out with great outlook and next to the hotel pool. Loved their breakfast menu, and their lunch and dinner menus looked impressive.

Although it's a little out of the city it is still within walking distance. They have perfect tables right out to the water and they have a light shining so even at night when it's dark you can see the fish. The food is good and reasonably priced, only downside really is the location.

I had a massage at the spa and then lunch at the restaurant to kill the 5 hours of my layover in Port-Vila on my return trip to the US. The lunch menu was quite varied with many selections that sounded wonderful. Service was attentive and the atmosphere pleasant. There is a wonderful view of the water, so if you... More

Really enjoyed my breakfast here! The banana smoothie was really yummy. The service was pretty poor although we did have a big group of around 8-10

Tilly's restaurant is the main restaurant of Chantilly's on the Bay hotel. It is inside the hotel building - situated out front on the water. With a diverse menu - that fits with the hotels tag line - Port Vila's best little international hotel. We like to think of Tilly's as the best place in town, with great, views, great service, great food and a great wine list. Do try us out.
