“Lovely restaurant, great food and great location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2013

Chill is located on the first floor of a building overlooking the harbour in Port Vila, capital of Vanuatu. The location is stunning; you can watch the cruise ships come into port, the local boat traffic between the islands or the sunset. The food is varied; you can have either a "snack" or a full meal. You need to book in the evening, but can just turn up for lunch. We had a pizza and a local chicken salad. Both were freshly prepared, delicious and relatively inexpensive. This was followed by the restaurant's own version of a lime tart, with a sauce and icecream. Extremely pleasant! The cocktails were also very good and the service was excellent. The restaurant is beautifully designed, with a great deal of attention given to presentation. However it is not a case of style over substance; the food is as good as it looks.
After the meal you can visit the local market, located just below the restaurant, or pick up supplies at a supermarket and get a "bus" back to your hotel; the bus stop is two minutes away from the restaurant entrance. All in all a great place to go, thoroughly recommended.

“Unexpected little gem”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2013

We found this place on a Sunday night as most others were closed. It does not look like much perched above a takeaway on the waterfront but it was a little gem of a restaurant.

Food and service were great (great beef and coconut curry), and a good selection of wines. Great value.

The restaurant overlooks the harbour and they floodlight the water so you can see hundreds of fish.

Recommended.

Great value for what you get and the meals were delicious and a great view as well, although we wanted to have the lobster but this was unavailable at the time.
