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

We have just experienced a delicious meal-meeting both our expectations and our needs. My husband only wanting a smaller meal and these were available. The desserts were ones where nothing is left on the plate. Service was excellent and the setting very relaxing. We appreciated being able to move to a lounge area for dessert and coffee. Much more restful.... More

We dined here on a Saturday night on the balcony next to the water. We selected the fresh pasta with poulet fish which was tasty and well balanced with olives and parmesan to add saltiness. Although we are not big eaters we found the serving was a good size for us. We shared a trio of locally made ice-creams (yum)... More

Try the Beef Randang. Best I have had. Tried this in many places in the sub continent but nothing compares. I'll be back in a week and can't wait to eat again.

Visited twice for breakfast over our week in Vanuatu, and loved it. I had the baked eggs both times, as it was so wonderful the first time, I couldn't risk trying anything that didn't live up to the same standard. It was amazing. Hubby had the big breakfast, and then herb potato hash with hollandaise and added the fresh greens.... More

This restaurant has excellent views of the bay though having limited outdoor seating. I had the Rib eye which was very good & the accompanying fries were excellent. Prices are reasonable by Vila standards.
