“Tasted fine but next day it was terrible”
Reviewed August 9, 2009

We went to Chill for dinner last week and had pizza that we thought was very nice. The next morning I was sick as a dog with food poisoning. As we were traveling we ate in many restaurants so it was hard to say were the stomach bug came from. We returned to Chill for lunch a couple of days later and my girlfriend felt unwell the day after.
2 cases of illness after eating at Chill had me guessing that Chill was the cause of my upset stomach.

On our way back to the airport a couple we spoke to also complained of illness after eating at Chill on the same night that I got sick.
4 cases of illness confirmed my suspicion that it was Chill that made me sick.

I think it's a nice restaurant and has staff were very friendly but there is some contamination in the kitchen or their produce.

“Superb Food, Friendly Service”
Reviewed August 2, 2009

We have recently returned from two weeks in Vanuatu and visited Chill Restaurant three times while we were there. Once for lunch, once for afternoon coffee and once for dinner.

The restaurant is upstairs and has beautiful daytime views over Port Vila Harbour and Iririki Island and equally beautiful views at night of boats on the harbour, the lights on Iririki island and if you look out of the window into the water below you can see hundreds of fish swimming just below the surface. The service in the restaurant couldn't be faulted and the atmosphere was great. Both meals we had were excellent and the lobster we chose for dinner was superb.

If you are looking for somewhere to dine in the heart of Port Vila, but away from the hustle and bustle and where you can choose anything from gourmet pizza to fine dining we would certainly recommend Chill. For a sweet treat, the coconut ice for sale on the counter as you leave is delish!

“An awesome "Chill"”
Reviewed July 28, 2009

We were in Vanuatu for a week (with friends) in July 2009. As it happened, we met up with some extra people so we were seated for dinner as a table of "12". Everyone had positive things to say about their meals. The food was superb!!! The friendliness of the staff was great, and as for the service ... we had 4 waitresses deliver our meals all at once, so we all ate at the same time - big plus!!! We had such a great experience there that we went again before we left Vanuatu. We heard that the lunches there were just as good also. Thumbs up Chill :) Well done!!!

“Best lobster and pizza ever!!”
Reviewed June 24, 2009

We ate at chill twice whilst in Port Villa. The first night my partner and I had a whole lobster each, it was excellent and not too expensive. The second time I had the smoked salmon pizza which is to die for. The service is excellent as is the food. We recommend anyone to go there. Great views!!

“was expecting more”
Reviewed June 23, 2009

Read the reviews on here and guess i expected more. Did get a window seat, was awesome watching the fish swim while we ate. Atmosphere was lovely and the staff were quick and friendly. The food was average.
