We ate at the Ocean King on the second of our two nights in Luganville, May 17th 2013. In the town itself the dinner selections are pretty minimal and the Ocean King stood out as both good food and good value. We had a biggish entree selection, and then mains, and didn't do dessert. We both had a pre dinner drink then a bottle of wine shared between us.

We thought both the food and service were very good and we eat a lot of chinese food in our home suburb in Sydney. The value compared to other places in Vanuatu was excellent. I maintain strongly is is silly to compare with "value" at home when their operating environment is so totally different. You have to compare like with like.

We both enjoyed our food and thought the lady the runs the place was very pleasant and friendly, and we came away thinking we had an enjoyable meal, good value with efficient friendly service.

Being attached to the Espiritu Hotel,it's convenient but the prices are comparable to Aussie dollars for incomparable food.

If you love seafood like I do, and can't wait to put your hands on a fresh lobster, mud crab, or tuna fish, or... local prawns, then this is the place to be... The Chef Hilton will only serve the freshest and best seafood in town... I always go for the Tuna sashimi, and carpaccio... But if seafood is not your thing, you can always get the Santo beef... Nice veranda on the outside, where you can enjoy lunch and dinner, on a hot and sunny day... Oh, and they do serve breakfast as well!!!... ask for Sharyn's muffins and cakes...

In out 7 days stay in Santo, we went there twice as they are not very many options in Luganville. The food is well cooked and fresh with generous portions. We also think the price is reasonable for what you are getting.

The only complain we have, was that the smell from the rubbish bins outside the premises was almost unbearable and we had to change tables because of that. And blow flies were a big issue.

Sharon and Hilton are great hosts and always welcome you with open arms. The food is excellent don't miss the sizzling Mongolian beef, tender meat perfectly cooked with nice seasoning. Hilton is an expert on batter so do try the salt and pepper prawns and also the lemon chicken delicious. One of my favourite places in Luganville and not to be confused with the other Chinese restaurant in town which does not match up to this one.
