“Nambawan = Number One”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2013

Best Pizza's in town, great beers brewed on the premises. Main street location opposite the Casino means pretty busy but the staff made you feel like you were the only one they had to attend to which makes you feel very special. Put a visit on the bucket list you will not be disappointed, we will be going back.

“Smoothies with a view!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2013 via mobile

Nambawan Cafe is a thatch roofed, open air cafe on the waterfront. The view across the harbour is stunning. It is a great place to chill and watch the world go by. Smoothies, juices and milkshakes are great, as are the pizzas. Order at the counter and food and drinks are delivered to your table. Free wifi passwords are available from the cshier. We visited multiple times over the course of our recent 2 week stint in Port Vila.

“Great coffee and view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2013

The coffee is good and if you want to just chill and watch the world go by then this is the place. I also tried a Kava Colada - not bad!

“very ambient”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2013

Went there for brunch, good food reasonably priced, good view over harbour.Good variety of food from the breakfast options to snacks and decent amounts too. Decent coffee. Staff just left you to linger- wish we had found this place earlier in the trip compared to other cafes in noisier areas.

“Great spot on the water”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2013

Great café. Food was reasonably priced and tasted great. Large variety to choose from, open early, and right on the water near the market. They also offer wifi to customers.
