We visited Le Cafe twice - once for brunch then again for dinner a week later. Both times the meals were excellent. The staff were absolutely lovely, efficent and very friendly and kind to our kids. The whole place including the toilets was very clean (a minor but important fact when you are travelling with kids!).

Found this oasis last January and was definitely not disappointed when taking friends back this trip. Staff remembered us, they were again friendly and helpful in such a beautiful atmosphere. Food was high quality and good variety. Only place in Vanuatu we were offered fresh bread rolls and butter to start- a welcome touch! Don't leave without trying a hazelnut... More

We had a lovely lunch on a quiet Sunday. We got a great table right on the harbour with a brilliant waitress, Sheila. Nice menu with fresh Tuna and lovely baguette. Great option for Port Villa.

Stop in just for a drink, or stay for a meal. Our meal was delicious and well priced for our Seafood Platter for 2. Overlooking Port Vila Harbour, the view was amazing and even more spectacular at Sunset. The menu was varied and well priced. Great for couples, or time out with or without the kids. The premises were clean... More

We stopped in here for lunch with our 2 & 4yr old kids before our glass bottom boat tour which left from the jetty behind the cafe. The Thai beef salad was beautiful. All food was nice and the service friendly. Would definitely go back.

We enjoyed dinner here on 2 evenings of our trip. Both times the service was excellent. Staff are very friendly and like to chat. Views of Irririki are beautiful if you have an outside table. Can highly recommend their pate and Thai beef salad as well as the steak with blue cheese sauce as a main course! Prices reasonable for... More

The Mediterranean design, waterfront location and superb cuisine have earned Cafe du Village iconic status in Vanuatu. Just a few steps down a leafy passegway next to the Grand Hotel you will enter into a small coutyard of serenity with split level coral based terraces, vivid white ballustrates, high ceilings, and white louvre shutters. Our local staff are carefully selected for their friendliness and hospitality from the top resort hotels and international cruise lines. We offer a diverse choice of dishes to suit most palates, from our freshly caught fish and lobster (when available), our excellent local beef, to our popular sausage and mash and steak and kidney pie, but make sure you a leave a little space for one of our amazing desserts. With a perfect location, beautiful views over the harbour, breath taking sunsets and fabulous hospitality there is no better place in Port Vila to relax, enjoy and while away the day.
