Good business hotel with all services available. I enjoyed a interesting presentation on the botanical inventory of Vanuatu by the joint forces of Vanuatu government and its local bodies and the NY Botanical Institute. The food and drinks are good, good parking and meeting facilities, great view from the terras over the bay next to the swimming pool. Almost too... More

This was my favourite refuge for years but it has changed. The jetty out in the water got destroyed in cyclone Pam and the new owners have no intention of replacing it. They have extended the railing and blocked the access. My days of gazing at the fish and the coral with a coffee in my hand are gone. On... More

We came here for dinner and sat out on the balcony overlooking the harbour and the sunset. Absolutely beautiful! The food was good, but the restaurant wasn't very full. Our very friendly waitress told us they are more popular for breakfast, but we had a wonderful time and meal for dinner. Coffee is very good too! Really enjoyed it and... More

Lovely place to dine, make sure you take a table on the deck overlooking the bay. Good service, great food, very reasonably priced. Good cocktail deals, staff always willing to help. Put this place on your list when in Port Vila.

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

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.

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.
