“Great value & friendly service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2013

My husband and I decided to try Chill after seeing that they offered lunch specials for 1200 VT, and we were not disappointed. My husband ordered the steak with a side of mashed potatoes, while I had the Vietnamese prawn skewers with a side of rice. We swapped bites of each other's lunch, and while I preferred the steak and mash to what I'd ordered, the prawn skewers and rice were still good. The serves were just the right size and the price included a drink.

While we were eating, we noticed that the couple at the next table were sharing a very tempting-looking pizza, which turned out to be the "Crabby Day" (crab, prawns, pineapple, capsicum, and black olives). On our last night in Port Vila, we ordered a medium Crabby Day along with a small "Vila Big Deala" (similar to a supreme) to take away. It was enough food to feed us for dinner that night as well as a quick lunch the next day before we departed for the airport.

The staff made us feel very welcome on both visits, and while we were waiting for our takeaway pizzas, we were ushered to the bar and given complimentary drinks. When we left with our pizza, the staff member on the cash desk couldn't open the door for us fast enough. Restaurant staff in Australia would do well to take a leaf out of Chill's book.

“Modern Australian with a French twist!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2013 via mobile

The food came out quickly and was very nice - we had cauliflower soup with onion rings, NZ oysters with a light dressing, and the meat medley with chips and kumara chips. The meat was especially good and cooked perfectly.

“A Cool Spot on a Warm Day”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2013

Visited Port Vila on the Pacific Jewel. Dropped in to Chill for a couple of Tuskers after exploring Vila on foot for a few hours. The place was spotless, cool and with a great view over the bay.

Although we didn't eat (too full from the Buffet on the Ship) we were made very welcome at the bar. There were quite a few lunchtime diners and their food looked delicious. I had a look through the menu and the meals sounded good and were a fair price.

The lunchtime specials included a glass of wine, or beer, and were only about AUD $15. I was sorry we weren't hungry as I would have liked to have tried some of the dishes. There was quite a variety of dishes to choose from on the menu.

What started off as 1 drink turned into several and a couple of hours, before we walked the hour back to the boat. The staff were very friendly and interested in where we came from, so a pleasantly cool few hours was spent, enjoying the locals and the lovely view. Restrooms were clean with soap, hand towels etc. Kitchen was also visible and looked tip top and clean too.

Next time we return to Vila we will make sure to cut out the Buffet breakfast and try Chilli for lunch.
