We ate several times at this restaurant. Twice we paddled across in kayaks from Warwick Le Lagon for lunch and once we arrived by water taxi for dinner. The coconut crab is spectacular-but is a huge meal and takes ages to eat. Best to ask the staff to crack it for you. We also tried the local Vanuatu beef.

We had been using this island resort's beach on our regular outings from Warwick Le Lagon's watersports activities, so we decided to come back for lunch - was a great choice. Super fresh Wahoo on a lovely risotto and coconut crab. The staff were amazing, and the food was obviously local and very good!

We dined here a few times during our stay in Vanuatu. The Melanesian night was great. Lunches were very basic - and options were limited, but the specials, which we had twice were absolutely amazing. Amazing service; staff were lovely. Beautiful spot, lagoon is as blue as you can imagine. Looks dreamy at high tide and at night.

Great dining experience, right on the waters edge. Typical island service, very friendly and helpful staff. Lobster and coconut crab were both superb and quite a large portion. Attacking the crab by twilight was a bit of a mission. Thankfully the wife couldn't see how much of a mess I made of my shirt. Great snorkeling straight off the beach... More

Take the bus to Erakor then the ferry across the lagoon and have launch at this great spot. It is peaceful and has a great view looking across the lagoon and out to the reef. Food is tasty and the staff friendly makes you want to stay all day.

Having stayed on Erakor for 12 nights we ate at Aqua for about eight dinners. Was with a group of 11 and the overwhelming feeling was positive. My wife had the seafood marinara four times. The lunch menu is simple but tasty .

We went over to Erakor Island twice on our recent holiday to Vanuatu. The kids loved snorkelling in the lagoon and it was nice and relaxing over on the other side to sit and read a book. The restaurant was great and it was so lovely to sit on the deck overlooking the lagoon. I had the best wrap ever... More

We were stayed on Erakor for 6 or 7 nights it was lovely and we ate at Aqua a lot as the food was great and fresh and we had a brilliant buffet for my sisters wedding. Too much food though! We asked that the staff got to take the leftovers home and not to waste it! A worthy day... More
