Have eaten here several times over the years and pleased to see the food standard for lunch was excellent.
We were part of a conference group where we pre-ordered our food and it was agreed by all the the food was good
I always have the coconut prawns as an entree and the eye fillet steak was huge and cooked as per my request.
The only negative is the travel out to the restaurant over a very potholed dirt road. But the end result was well worth it, not to mention that with a few drinks, the drive back did not seem as bad

Thank you for your feedback about your experience at Tamanu. Consistency is something we do strive for and it is rewarding to hear that we achieve this. As a developing country, the roads in Vanuatu do leave a lot to be desired at times. We try our best to keep the Tamanu road graded as best as we can as the local council doesn't take any responsibility for this. Such a shame you came the day before the grader started its work. Nevertheless, thank you again and we look forward to welcoming you back once more.

We had 2 dining experiences on which was considered bland and tasteless by the adults and the second was a quick lunch where we ordered pizzas subs for the kids which was basically tomato sauce and cheese which no child (5) ate. Beef was ok although overpriced.

This place was pure class. It was a shame we were there after dark as it would have been lovely to see it in the daylight. Another unfortunate thing was there was only us and another couple so the place lacked a certain atmosphere but we still loved it and fully appreciated the lovely decor. The staff were attentive and very very pleasant. My meal was perfect, I had prawns and they were superb. My husband had beef which was excellent.
If we ever return to Vanuatu we will definitey come back to Tamanu and before sunset to get a real appreciation of the place.
