I was guaranteed to live the Wahoo fish and Po Qui (sp?) it was so good, I had to have more later..... fabulous downtown location with a tropical feel. Welcoming and friendly staff.

One of the great pleasures of sailing is that you can visit small islands and eat local cuisine. Saddly, this is not the case if you visit the "Goat Island Cafe". The food was good, however is foof the you can get anywhere else on earth. No need to sail several thousand miles to have a really nice steak, you... More

My wife and I ate here on a drizzly weeknight for dinner. Service was a bit slow, but it is American Samoa. Very friendly server (Michelle). We sat out on the covered veranda and drank in the beautiful views of the small bay in front of Sadies By The Sea and Pago Pago Harbor. Gorgeous setting for dinner--but this restaurant... More

Seems very promising with a great location and nice building but the food didn't really stand out. Service was very friendly but shall we say relaxed, it took ages to get our order in and then my meal came out 10 minutes before my friend's. We heard so many good things but perhaps it was an off-night. I would give... More

Despite our effort to sample as many restaurants on the island as we could, we came here twice. They serve the best tacos I've ever had! OK, probably not authentic Mexican tacos, but absolutely delicious. We also had chicken and shrimp teriyaki--delish! Great waitstaff. Sit outside by the harbor and enjoy.

We stayed at Sadie's by the Sea on 24 Dec. This restaurant is just next door. We took lunch and dinner here. There were many guests for lunch, we had to wait for long time to order. We took Fish & Chips with beer. During this journey, we took Fish & Chips also in Port Vila. It's my favorite. We... More

If you pick the right items on the menu the food is good. I usually eat the Fish and some banana chips, etc. Breakfast is good too!

We went here for lunch and it seemed as though the wait staff ignored us. We were sitting for about 15 minutes and we were not greeted even though there were less than 5 groups of people in the restaurant. After sitting for what seemed like an eternity I went up and asked for a few menu's to look at.... More

My family and I frequent the GIC for the view and atmosphere. Great ocean and harbor views from in and outdoor seating. Always breezy. Food is exceptional and quite pricey compared to other great restaurants in the area.

This place happened to be attached to my hotel (Sadie's by the Sea), so I thought it would be a basic motel bar, with crumby simple food, but I was wrong. This is perhaps the best place on the island, as evidenced by the fact that the Governor came down to eat breakfast here most days. I stumbled in the... More
