We had lunch here after our turtle reef tour, which starts and ends at the Wahoo bar. Lunch menu contains mainly seafood dishes but there are also ribs and hamburgers for those who don't appreciate seafood. Food was well made and taste. Owner also can...More

The Wahoo bar is a nice trip out of Villa. We hired a quad bike and went for a ride up through the mountains to Havannah Harbour and found the bar hidden away on the coast. Beer was cold and the deck was a great...More

Thanks guys. We actually forget that at low-medium tide a walk along the beach is also very pleasant. Thanks for reminding us. Glad you enjoyed the food. Come back again!

We had good reports about the Wahoo Bar so we decided to give it a go. Its set on the beautiful Havana harbor and has an out look to die for. Admittedly we visited in March which is the off season so the wine collection...More

Your observations are well noted. You don't have to order from the bar - we actually take orders from the tables as well - but sometimes I fear we may be a bit too casual. It is not our thing to be pushy if someone...More

Open 7 days for lunch, 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, prawn curry and Vanuatu's largest 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. The restaurant will stay open for dinner but prior reservations must be made.
