My guys and I (Kenny, Joe, Matt, and others) ate literally dozens of meals there when we were in country for a Housing Project. We NEVER had even a mediocre or average meal, every meal was outstanding. Having eaten at nearly EVERY restaurant in the...Port Vila area ( we were in country for over a year), Cafe Vila is the best. Its not only the best Cafe in Port Vila, its the best restaurant, period.More

Staying at the Nusama resort, so this is the closest restaurant for us to eat at without going into town. The staff are very friendly and accommodating, the meals are nice and fresh, children's meals were great and a good selection. We've had cocktails, coffee,...breakfast, dinners during our week stay and it's all been good no complaints. Not large serves but perfect sizing (so you can't get away with sharing meals to save money) service is always friendly but don't forget we are on Vanuatu time it's very laid back, enjoy a cocktail!More

Had a great holiday in Vanuatu and ate all our meals at Cafe Vila which was the restaurant adjacent to the Nasama Resort where we stayed. Great food with plenty of choice, a very comprehensive menu with delicious dishes for every taste. First class staff,...particularly Annie, who made us so very welcome, remembering all our names and who looked after us amazingly, gorgeous lady. All of the staff were great and couldn’t do enough for us. Can’t wait to return.More

Restaurant about 5 minutes drive from Le Legon. The first night we went the waitress Annie was lovely. Upon our return she embraced us warmly to welcome us back. There is a resident cat Popote, who wanders around chatting to the guests. He is beautiful....Ordered a piña colada cocktail. Tuesday and Thursday nights are 2 for 1 deal. They arrived with chocolate sauce decorated in side the glass. Interesting. The steak was fabulous as was the chilli calamari. Highly recommend this place for the staff, ambiance and food.More

Good food. Reasonable value and great service. Ate out at multiple places across the island. Cafe Vila was our second best pick of the island. The service was good, the meals lovely but the price is in line with most of the resorts. The difference...is you won’t be disappointed with the food and service.More
