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 give you a ride back to your hotel if you wish.

On the suggestion of our tour guide, Sakari Toara of Vila Hope Tours we called into Wahoo Bar & Restaurant for lunch as part of our recent around Efate excursion. Delicious food, superb views, inviting waters for swimming. A great place to chill out for a couple of hours (or longer , if you wish).

Beautiful place, good service and really good prawns & beef burger. Worth of walking from The Havannah.

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 spot to sit looking out across the bay into the crystal clear water. Turtle Beach... More

We took a drive up to Wahoo bar after I had read about it and locals had also recommended it. It is a beautiful drive from Port Vila. The location is superb. The water is simply beautiful. You could have lunch and swim and snorkel. There are tours that leave from there although we only stopped in for lunch. The... 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! More

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 was run down and I had three shots a selection before success. The owner was... 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 looks to be simply enjoying a drink but we don't want you to feel ignored... 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.
