Service is a little, ummm, slow. I dont know if the waitstaff are shy or they feel you really do need a good half an hour before acknowledging your existence and taking your drink order. However they do provide a good back story on their seafood on your table, so that helps to pass the time whilst you wait for your waiter. Also, having arrived for lunch it is a vast view out across the harbour at Port Villa, and I'd dare say would provide an amazing location to watch the sunset.


We ordered off the 'lunch special' and was pretty good value for money. Poulette fish (me) and honey soy prawn skewers (him) were tasty. Not big meals, but it is lunch, and the lunch special no less, and to be fair there was an option to 'upsize' your meal to dinner size if you wish. So cannot complain about portion size. Whilst the lunch special does provide good value for money, I certainly wouldnt class it as one of Port Vila's finer dining establishments. But it is worth a try.

The food here was spectacular. We stayed in vanuatu for 16 days and ate at Chill nearly every other day. The beef was so incredible, cooked to absolute perfection. We also had a few of their lunch and dinner specials which were so cheap, and defiantly not a compromise on flavour. The chocolate soufflé is an absolute must if you want dessert, or try some of their fudge if you just need a sweet snack. The staff were so friendly, very efficient and the restaurant was very clean. I recommend booking a seat by the windows at night, watching the fish and the sunset is beautiful! I would recommend this restaurant to anyone......I still have dreams about the beef.

We were recommended Chills by some members of our tour group but it was the only bad experience of the entire trip. The food was expensive but bland and overcooked, unfresh fish.

This upstairs restaurant right beside the central market is a brilliant choice for an affordable lunch. It has a panoramic view of Port Vila harbour (ask for a window table), it's air-conditioned (the middle of the day can be very hot), the lunch specials are good and affordable (there are kids' specials too) and the wait-staff are charmingly helpful. The restaurant even surprised us with freebies to keep the kids occupied.

I had one of the dinner specials - steak with a port and rosemary sauce with chips and a drink for only 2600 vatu. Great value! The steak was cooked perfectly - I absolutely love Vanuatu beef and have never had a bad steak in this country. We had a window seat so could watch the fish being fed from the takeaway restaurant below. The only downside was how cold it was in the air con - bring a jumper! Overall a great dining experience :)
