This outdoor restaurant is in a lovely location on the beach.

The downside to our visit was the service 'or lack of'. We had to ask for menus four times and when the wine was delivered the waitress just dumped the bottles on the table and left for us open and pour ourselves. Wouldnt' mind this if this was a cheap cafe, but they are charging restaurant prices.

The food is OK, however, I ordered the steak stuffed with lobster. The only lobster was a small dried out tail at the side of the steak.

From the water taxi ride over to the beautiful, peaceful location. This place has it all. My husband & I had the most delicious meal. He had the seafood basket which was huge & I had chargrilled steak served with an apple & beetroot salad. We were not disappointed. The setting is magnificent as is the food. Highly recommend this place

Loved to eat our beautiful fresh seafood overlooking the reef fish in the restaurant hut. Pina Colada's are a must, they were delicious!

My partner and I shared the Seafood Basket, it was delicious! All the ingredients were from fresh fish caught locally so the taste is amazing. The chefs are all local natives of Vanuatu and they are amazing cooks. After lunch we snorkelled around the reef out the front of the restaurant. We caught the Cruise Away boat over and were picked up late afternoon in time to watch the sunset... Truly amazing food, views and experience.

The Coco Beach Restaurant has a fabulous location overlooking the ocean with views of the sunset. It has relaxed open welcoming feel which is enhanced by Gerry the manager who looks after each and every customer to ensure there meal and experience is most enjoyable.

The menu is extensive which serves all local produce from Vanuatu, the steak, fish and seafood
is all fresh and locally sourced. The Chilli Crab is delicious!!
The array tropical fruits, bananna (at least 4 different varieties), grapefruit and mangoes are delicious. Have never tasted grapefruit like that grown in Vanuatu.

Just to sit overlooking the ocean is an experience and you can just jump into the ocean after your
meal....... I can't do that at home.

Bon Apetite!
