About
Open 7 days for lunch and dinner, this venue is a favourite of locals and tourists looking to get out of Port Vila. Wahoo Bar is right on the water's edge at Havannah Harbour. Renowned for its fresh local seafood, sashimi, prawn curry, pork ribs and Vanuatu's best hamburgers, the restaurant has great views and outside seating. Visitors can swim and snorkel on site and the venue is child friendly. The Wahoo Bar is also open for sunset drinks every night and the sunsets can be quite amazing. Dinner reservations are highly recommended.

Great little place to stop for lunch. The whole deep fried snapper with salad and chips for two (5000vt) was delicious. The restaurant is right in the beach and after lunch we went for a snorkel along the reef. Beautiful spot. Gorgeous staff. Great food...would recommend.More

Went to Wahoo after reading the reviews. The location and the view, right on the water's edge is special. However the prices are way to expensive for what you receive. Aus$80.00 for 2 x fish, chips, salad and 3 softdrinks. The portions were quite small...as well. The staff were friendly and they had a local band playing, which added to the atmosphere. A great place to relax with drinks, but wouldn't eat there again.More

We stopped by Wahoo Bar on a recommendation from our accommodation owner on a circumnavigation of the island. It was coming to sunset and the view over Havannah Harbour was quite lovely. It seems a popular place with expats, and they hold a Tuesday night...Trivia (maybe not every week?). The menu is pretty standard fare of steak, seafood, burgers and so on. I had entree size pork ribs and it was ENORMOUS!! Prices are, like everywhere, quite high, but between the setting and the portion size, it was a pretty good dinner option. We'd have stayed longer but wanted to head down the mountain before it got too dark (we were in a non-sound mini moke and I didn't trust the mechanics or brakes!).More

We stopped in for lunch on our way through. It is a beautiful and relaxing spot. True waterfront and you can wade in the water with a beer whilst waiting for your order. Staff were friendly and helpful. We had two fish burgers which were...delicious. Not the cheapest place but we thought it was worth the money.More

An amazing place to sit looking at the view and relaxing while having a great meal and a beer or two. The menu had a great selection, something for everyone. The staff were very friendly and they couldn’t have been more helpful, especially the owners...who really made us feel welcome. Would definitely recommend a visit to this bar and restaurant.More

Stopped in for lunch while cruising around Efate. Awesome spot to kick back relax and enjoy the view while having a feed and a few drinks. We shouted our driver grilled fish chips and salad,myself and two other had the battered fish which was so...fresh and good size. The last of us had the pork ribs and they were massive. Took a while for the food to come out but hey just chill and remember your on island time! Not the cheapest meal but worth the visit.More

Quiet location on the water in Port Havannah overlooking Moso and Lelepa Islands on the lee side of Efate. Very peaceful and relaxing. Good food options but quite expensive for what it is in my opinion. Nice staff and the manager even dropped us back...at our accomodation down the road. Can close early if no one is around as it is located in the country, went to watch a major sports match there and it was shut which was surprising.More

A great little spot with expansive views across the harbour to enjoy a late lunch and a few drinks after a day snorkeling. The food is good, drinks are cold and the service is island time friendly. Definitely recommend here, even for a drop in...if you’re driving around the island.More
