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

This restaurant is LITERALLY on the waterfront in Port Vila where the road down from the Catholic Cathedral intersects with the Father Walter Lini Highway. The lunchtime menu is somewhat limited unless you crave a hamburger or pasta or (fresh) fish. They weren't interested in making us something as simple as a toasted tomato sandwich, preferring instead to press us... More

On the waterfront, clean and good service. Great bagels with egg and bacon for brunch. The pan served spiced eggs were fantastic.
