“For PNG, good food at reasonable prices”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2012

After spending about two months in the Gulf Province and having smoked fish and sago, perhaps my view is slanted, but I was happy to be recieved by friendly wait staff and treated to generous portions of well prepared food. I invited a group of about 18 people on two different occasions, and felt that for PNG the prices were reasonable, especially compared to hotels in the area. The view of the harbor and yachts from the balcony is superb. On most nights there are specials, such as mongolian wok style dining, and barbeque entrees prepared outdoors. I highly recommend this place if spending time in Port Moresby.

“New chef improves fodd”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2012

The new Kiwi chef has done a great job in improving the food. Once the YC was a place you ate at on sufferance - now you can enjoy the food.
It is a bit expensive, but so is everything in POM

“The perfect spot to watch the sun go down”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2012

The Yacht Club and gorgeous sunsets go hand in hand - this is THE place to be in Port Moresby to watch the sun sink into the horizon. While it often reminds me of an Australian RSL, the new menu is great and it's a relaxing spot to spend a Friday night or Sunday afternoon.
