Our visit was on a fairly quiet day, but staff appeared to be few and far between. Menus are clear, but presentation shows wear and tear. Pricing is pretty good, and the quality of the food was excellent, though service was not commensurate with the number of customers around. This restaurant is well situated, with stunning views across Port Vila... More

So sad we've been here in the past and had lovely meals not so this time .I think Cyclone Pam and lack of tourists has really affected this place.

I had been to La Tentation a number of times on previous trips to Vanuatu and had always been really impressed. Not this time. When we arrived there was 1 other table occupied. The staff were probably having lunch (they were seated together at a table) and were clearly unimpressed with being interrupted. The service throughout our meal was very... More

My friend and I visited La Tentation several times on a previous trip to Vanuatu in 2009. At that time the food, service and atmosphere was fantastic. Not surprisingly, we were looking forward to another meal there on our return to Vanuatu in July 2016. Unfortunately, our experience couldn't have been more different to that of 2009. We went for...

Dropped by for breakfasts & wifi on a rainy morning in Port Vila. We both had the 3 egg omelettes...which were both well undercooked. Wifi was for a 30 minute limit...which was OK for us. All up..we wouldn't go back.

Having tried many of Port Vila's Restaurants, La Tentation impressed us the most. The Cusine is the best we have experienced thus far having tried many of the leading restaurants. The Mussels starter was very good. The house speciality " Pate" wasn't what we expected and perhaps is a bit misleading. For the mains we had the Seafood casserole and... More

Stumbled across this wonderful restaurant & bar while in port off a cruise ship. A big shout out to our wonderful waiter who made us feel so very welcomed. Excellent friendly service. Try the Tusker beer - yum. And the burgers are soooo delicious. And the view is absolutely breathtaking. I will definitely pop by again on my next cruise... More
