“Cold Food & Very Poor Service”
Reviewed August 27, 2012

Was in Port Vila for a week, ate out every night and this was the worst meal we had. The people in front of us had a few issues and that seemed to impact on the staff's attitude towards us, and we had just come in!
When the food finally did arrive the steaks were stone cold as were the chips (the fat started to harden on them)
There was no service at all, no one came and asked if all was ok until we were almost finished and when asking where the toilets were the staff appeared grumpy and off hand.

There are plenty more places to eat steak or other good dishes - La Tentaion, Chill, Brewery Bar to name a few (went to all these and they were all good) and all along the same road.

“Big steaks for the hungry”
Reviewed August 7, 2012

If you love a big pack of meat look no further. The setting is simple, but the food (=meat) is delicious. One can sit outdoors. A good mix of tourists and locals. Would return there any time as the pices are also reasonable. Nothing facy, but who needs that when one is hungry?

“Bad Service and Average Food”
Reviewed August 4, 2012 via Local Picks

we had the worst experience ever in this restaurant a 5 years ago, so we though it might be time to give it another try......what a mistake that was.

we waited over an hour for food and it was not even busy, when the when the food did come it was so underwhelming and below average. And the food was so overpriced compared to the quality.

I think this will be the last time we step foot in the place, and everyone else be warned!

The best food we had in Vanuatu. Finished every piece off the plate. Dined here with 6 people, and everyone only had great things to say
