Our driver (thanks Moby) recommended this place to us and it did not disappoint. This was the best lunch we had. I had the seafood spaghetti and it was yum. My husband had the NZ mussels. They were also lovely but my dish was the standout. We did get food envy when another table were served. The burgers they had... More

The food here, especially at night, is fantastic. We ate here everyday for fourteen days, both lunch and dinner, so I feel qualified to comment. The lobster and crab are delicious, and beautifully cooked and presented. The only steak I would recommend anywhere is eye fillet and the beef Wellington did not disappoint. Tender, succulent and medium rare. The salads... More

The location of the restaurant is perfect. Meandering through the lush foliage, which Ursula has taken such care with created miracles post cyclone Pam. The setting over the lagoon is perfect for large group or intimate dining alike. However the service is very slow (it took 2 hours to get our meal) and the food, in my opinion is, underwhelming...

Been to Vila many times on ships and always go to Vila Chaumieres and have taken friends & family who have joined us on the cruises. The food has always been excellent though sometimes the service is a little slow (Island Time). It was situated out over the lagoon and was wonderfully relaxing. You can pick up a taxi to... More

When you enter the place, you walk on a small winding path with lots of plants and flower to get the "secret place" where the restaurant is located. It opens to a very quiet, beautiful place located on the lagoon where you have to chance to eat with a view and be 1 meter away from the water. The staff... More

This restaurant has an amazing atmosphere & setting. You are sitting on a deck, actually over the water of the lagoon. There is section of the lagoon which has been slightly walled off & is full of fish & other sea creatures which are fascinating to watch as you wait for your meals. The food here is excellent & portion... More

What a gem of a restaurant sitting above water with lagoon views. Exceptional service & food. The tastes of the tropics with French influence make for an exciting & inviting menu. Can't wait to come back for more.

We had lunch here and what a great place to relax by the water. The location is excellent right on the water. Plenty of food to choose from and we enjoyed our meals.
