We came here for lunch and was impressed the burgers were packed with flavour. It’s a cafe more like an Australian standard than a vanuatu standard. Either way they did a great steak sandwich and good chicken and halloumi salad too.More

We had breakfast once and it was comparable to Sydney prices ~15 for mains. Other mornings we had muesli and yoghurt which we bought from the local supermarket. Takeaway coffees are also good from Cafe Vila
