Description: Oyster Island Resort Restaurant - 100% waterfront, set overlooking the tranquil waters of Peterson Bay, Oyster Island is elegant yet casual, serving only 100% Organic Fresh Island Grown and Market Fresh Produce, Sustainable locally caught seafood, and the famous Organic Santo Beef. Weather its a romantic 3 course wine matched special occasion, or a sand between your toes casual lunch, Oyster Island caters to all. Our Sunday BBQ Lunch Buffet is legendary - featuring local live music, and too many dishes to mention. Reservations essential. Drive north on the east coast road until you come to the sign, drive through the village to the 'landing'. Bang the tank to let our boat crew know you need a pick up, and sit back, enjoy the waterfront view, sip a cocktail and let the Oyster Island staff pamper you with the Ni-Vanuatu smiles and hospitality that this country is renown for.

just returned Great to be away from Lugenville in 20 mins lounging on a gorgeous sandy beachfront resort It is a laid back Robinson Cruisoe feel but with the comfort of lovely restaurant overlooking water 190degree view . Cute thatched huts with balcony over water with lovely glass doors so you can lye in bed and watch the fish jump at dawn! very intimate and private . We took the kayaks across the water and up the nearest river to a lovely blue hole ... Really fun to kayak there and deserved the tasty lunch on return to resort .Olive and Dave the kiwi managers are friendly fun and ready to help organize day trips or anything you want . They sorted our transfers from and to the resort so very easy . Would suggest renting moped / car for a couple of days if you wanted to tour up the island as it is safe to leave at ferry landing or Olive will get transport
Lots of activity I/2 day full. Day adventures can be booked from resort and Mt Hope tour was popular

We tried to pick something different every night for dinner (we stayed 7 nights). The fish of the day was so fresh. The buffets are a must, (visitors come out from town) for a feast of everything from sweet potato to oysters, and that unforgetable home made custard for dessert! Prices are reasonable and servings are adequate. and it's easy for happy hour to become an afternoon habit in such a relaxed atmosphere.

We ate here quite a few times while staying at the resort. The food was always good quality, the service was excellent from the very friendly staff, and there's a good variety to choose from (important if you're staying for any length of time).

Meals and prices range from basic burgers/wraps and chips for 1200-1500 vatu, through to 2500-3000 vatu for steak and seafood etc.

It’s so quiet! Over all a fantastic experience and very romantic. The staff are fantastic and really friendly, you get a boat across to the island in less than 5 minutes and it is very quiet place to relax and unwind. The food is good best wine list in Santo, the snorkeling is excellent and the walk through the rainforest on the island is great. The Mt Hope Waterfall with the Sunday Buffet is highly recommended!
