We walked past and decided to have dinner here on our last evening in Vanuatu. We both had Santo steak, which was cooked to perfection, and came with some excellent sides.

The service and outlook was good but the platter we felt was overpriced (like most... More

We visited for dinner whilst on our honeymoon. We ordered the prawn and chorizo pasta and the fish and chips. Both were excellent and generously portioned. Such a romantic location on the harbour to enjoy a cocktail and a nice meal.

Description
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.
