We decided to go to Vila Chaumieres, albeit expensive, as we were having such a wonderful holiday in Port Vila.
The restaurant entrance is very daunting to find at night, tradesman's entrance, dark winding path, quite long, with little signage.
Found the delightful setting, over the lagoon, soft lighting.
This was going to be so romantic.
Ordered wine, and decided on the full lobster moray each, fairly pricey but we wee celebrating.
The wine was delivered, to the serving station about 12 feet away, but not served, never served.
After about 15 minutes, I wandered across and opened the wine, and poured our first drink.
The lobster came, and gee it looked great, but the sauce was weak and runny, and wait fit it.
The lobster was so tough it was hard to cut through, disgusting.
We tried to make the best if an awful dining experience, but we couldn't quite finish this expensive disaster.
We were loathe to complain at first, it does kill the romance, but finally, and probably too late, I dragged the reluctant waitress over and voiced my concern.
We never saw her again.
Finally the manager came over,was overly protective of his chef, never apologised, told us we should have complained earlier.
After much discussion, with my wife now on the verge if tears, he offered us a discount, and left.
We left, and went back to our glorious Trooicana Resort, and had a stiff drink.
Not to be recommended!!!
