“Best in Port Vila by far”
Reviewed March 12, 2013

We were excited by the variety in the menu which had the classics and some inventive modern dishes with a local twist. I got the French onion soup 1300vt (by which I judge all French Restaurants) and it was great . I had to share it around as it was a large bowl with 3 big croutons and lots of melted cheese. He got prawn profiteroles with a peanut butter & whisky cream sauce 1800vt, which were to die for! I had a dream about them last night!
For mains we had duck which was fall apart tender, rich and beautifully sauced and a prime Beef Filet Roquefort both around 2800vt. You get a choice of veg and we both chose the dauphinois potato which was lovely in its little ramekin.
We couldn’t fit dessert in but got the tasting plate anyway….of petit crème brulee, chocolate mousse, maccarons and expresso coffee.
Commendably, the menu states that they will not serve the endangered coconut crab. Service by uniformed waitresses and jazzy décor including baby grand piano make this probably the most up market restaurant in PV now. But the prices are so reasonable and the hosts warmly welcoming!

“Raising the standard”
Reviewed March 10, 2013

The service was excellent, great atmosphere and an all around fine dining experience. Refreshing to see a new restaurant that is raising the standard in Port Vila.
