This is an entirely suitable place to have dinner out in Port Vila. As with the rest of Vanuatu, you need to recognise this is a developing country. The beer was cold, the steak was cooked right, and the service was surprisingly prompt and efficient.

We can't complain at all about the Waterfront, but it wasn't an amazing experience, it was just good.

Back in Vila for our third trip and dined here most nights this trip. Steak, ribs and lobster are fantastic. Overall atmosphere is very laid back with great service. Would definitely recommend this place for lunch or dinner.

We came for drinks with friends one night and thought they were well priced and a great spot to watch the comings and goings in the harbour. We appreciated the free freshly cooked kumala fries. We returned for the lobster as this had been recommended by a fellow tourist. We asked them to split the lobster between 2 of us they were happy to oblige and kindly gave us each a full serve of the sides at no additional cost. While I could have eaten a whole lobster, the size was such that half with sides of veg and rice was sufficient.. The service was good too! Great live music as well .

Visited this restaurant for dessert and cocktails after a sunset cruise. The atmosphere was wonderful, as was the dessert and the cocktail!

Well priced, varied and amazing views. Staff very helpful and prompt. Cocktails and drinks COLD and accomodating. Good place to base camp before during or after a day of adventuring.
