Description: Enjoy our open air dining surrounded by stylish Melanesian decor and cool breezes from the lagoon. Whether it is a romantic night out, a special occasion or a group of friends, we can ensure you have a wonderful and fun night with fantastic dining. Suspended over the water's edge, Sunset Bungalows Bungalow:Ate Restaurant offers breath taking views of the lagoon and the tropical fish that linger around the deck. These fish are particularly plentiful in the evenings as they are drawn in by the atmospheric flood lights that wash over the surface of the water.

“Delicious”
Reviewed July 24, 2014 via mobile

After a beautiful seven days at Sunset Bungalows I can highly recommend Bungalow Ate for all your meals! There was a varied choice for breakfasts, lunch and dinner. We tried to eat our way through the Menu, and although unsuccessful we gave it a good go. The meals we had were all delicious, tender steaks, beautiful fresh fish, tender Osso Bucco, Seafood Marinara,Prawn Cocktail to name a few that we managed to get through. Our problem was that we ran out of time, such a shame. Will have to remember to book for a longer stay next time as Greg ( Manager and Host) told us that the Chefs are working on more dishes to extend the Menu. Complete holiday destination great accommodation and food.

“Yum!”
Reviewed July 23, 2014

We ate nearly all of our meals here while we were staying at Sunset. Their pork belly and steak dinners were definitely a favourite. Not the most adventurous dining we did whilst in Vanuatu, but we did have some very happy tummys.

“Yum!”
Reviewed July 12, 2014

Ate Restaurant at Sunset Bungalows is a perfect place for a quiet meal with attentive staff, a great cocktail list and a solid menu.
I particularly enjoyed any meal on the menu which contained local produce or input. So the brownie special on one of the nights (local nuts and manioc flour) during our stay over 13 to 20 June 2014 really stood out to me as a winner. I'm getting hungry thinking about it.
I would suggest this place for the all round deliciousness and tranquility (lagoon at the end of the table). Thank you Audrey and Greg! Cheers, Matt and Taryn from Auckland

“Just perfect”
Reviewed July 6, 2014

My wife and I recently stayed at Sunset Bungalows, and enjoyed the perfect getaway from the hustle and bustle of town. The food was excellent, as were all the staff and Greg and Audrey, our hosts. We ended up eating in Table Ate, every night of our stay, and thoroughly enjoyed every meal, including breakfasts. We'll definitely be back.
P.S: Cocktail hour on the deck every day was awesome. 5 stars.

“Sunset Bungalows Ate”
Reviewed June 25, 2014

This is my third time staying at Sunset Bungalows and Bungalow Ate Restaurant is getting better and better thanks to Greg, Audrey and Naps (chef). The pork belly is the best I have ever tasted, better than the Aussie chefs back home. We usually eat out when on holidays but when you have a great restaurant at your resort why go out. Great affordable prices, friendly staff and great cocktails. A must to do while in Vila.
