I happened upon this cafe almost by accident. Service was great, view also and food very nice indeed. Had substantial piece of fresh mahimahi, kumela and nicely dressed salad. I felt the price was fine for the quality of food- freshly prepared and cooked. I...will be going back again for some other meals for sure.More

We ate here years ago and never came back until recently. It seemed that the portions were rather small for the money. We found that still to be true. However, the food was really good. The menu is not as French as the name, but...it does have some French items, and that was what we enjoyed. We also enjoyed the view of Iririki and the wooden sailing ship that was moored a few meters from our table. We did not especially enjoy the music. We would have preferred the sounds of the seafront. Nevertheless, it was an enjoyable experience overall.More

We decided to have an early lunch and this cafe was in the perfect location. Unfortunately there were a couple of smokers near by that shared there smoke with us. The food: Beef bourguignon was good but needed more sauce and whole snapper was very...good crispy skin but was a small portion and expensive ($50 AUD).More

Have enjoyed several breakfasts and lunches at Le Cafe this trip to Vanuatu...far better than most in town for quality, price and service. Location to die for as well. At the end of town that starts to thin out with more professional services buildings than...tourist shops it's worth the walk. Got a busy and friendly vibe. Do try French Toast for breakfast...coffee good too. Lunch snacks of calamari and coconut prawns both good options.More

Ok, the location is good. Also, I didn’t eat there although the reviews look great. I just called in for a cold drink on my way to the villa. Le Cafe du Village is on the waterfront looking across to Iririki Island but that does...not justify 880 vatu (about £6) for a simple G&T. Previously I’d paid between 600-700. There are many other beautiful places to enjoy a nice cold drink.More

Hi Sue, Not sure why you would have paid 880 vatu, A G&T is 725 and premium Gin starts at 825. Kind regards Simon

Great spot & diverse menu however there was no Thai in the Thai salad & both my wife & daughter ordered the same meal. Nothing in Vanuatu is cheap & this place was reasonably priced considering. Went across to a nearby servo & bought a...Tusker beer for 250 vt. Can’t buy the same beer under 600-700 vt anywhere you eat.More

Stopped in here for lunch. Service was very slow and food was not very nice. I ordered the Thai beef salad. The meat was tender and delicious but the dressing was horrible so I couldn’t eat the salad. The view is nice however it was...a very hot day and we changed tables 3 times to try and get a little respite from the heat and we were not successful. The drinks took forever as well so that didn’t help. It was a little pricey for lunch as well. 4 of us 2 burgers and two salads around $120More

We were staying next store at the Grand and after checking online decided to go to this place to try it out. We went to sit outside and there was a few drunken people. One of the locals slapped another right in the face and...fell off the seat. The workers tried to move them away from the tourists but they stayed at the place barely able to walk and just kept drinking. We laughed it off and decided to order food. There was nothing left on menu every time we tried to order so finally decided on a pizza. It came out and was clearly a microwave pizza with a couple of extra bits of chicken put on top. Bottom was still cold and soggy. Chips were cold and soggy. Could not finish it. Very overpriced.More
