Description: A sensational location right on the harbour in Port Vila. It is where the locals and visitors meet for a cold Tusker , a glass of wine or a meal and a coffee, watch the sunset, and listen to live music. If that's not enough to wet your appetite then check out the live sport on 5 sports channels showing all the best in international sport. See you at The Anchor

“Great Location - Exceptional Seafood”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

Great location to sit and watch the bay. Happy hour from 5.30pm. Drinks and meals well priced. Talk to the cooks if there is no lobsters on the menu and the may source some for you. We had a couple of beautiful meals of 1kg lobsters for $24AUD each. The staff are really friendly and happy to help with local knowledge.

“Go for the lobster”
Reviewed May 9, 2013

A$20 a whole 1kg lobster and chips or A$40 for 2kg one. Wasn't on menu every night so just ask chef if they have any. Worth going there for that and daily cocktail special at A$7 good value.

“Quick lunch”
Reviewed April 12, 2013

We were touring Port Vila having just got off of an excellent P & O cruise through the Pacific islands. We saw the Anchor Inn and had our driver drop us there. The lunchtime food was great ( nice fish and chips - 1200 Vatu, about $12 ). Try the Tusker beer... not bad !

“Harbour views,a cold beer and a Minute Steak.”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

We enjoyed the spacious and well located Anchor Inn.You can sit right up at the front and look out at Port Vila's magnificent harbour.
Vanuatu's own Tusker beer is served cold to refresh the keenest thirst.
The friendly local staff will wait on you all night.
There is a grill where you can get steak.,chips and salad for about $10NZ.
The only thing that could put you off is that it has a large screen showing mainy Australian Rugby league,so non sports fans beware.
But that said it is a friendly place,has a happy hour every night and my wife and I really liked it.
It's also a good place to socialise with other holidaymakers.
