“Worth the drive”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 22, 2014 via mobile

Or better still - get the water taxi!

Location is stunning and food - not overly expensive for such a location - and good without being exceptional...

Would return - but wouldn't rush back...

“great food and setting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2014

Little way out of Port Vila but worth the trip by bus or taxi. Meal was delicious with fantastic service from our waiter Jean-Paul. Fairly expensive but clearly our best meal during our stay in Port Vila.

“Steak in Vila”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2014

Having lived in Vila in the 90's I knew how good the steak could be but was disappointed by my few previous experiences. However finally at Coco's I got a perfectly cooked, tasty juicy medium rare steak. Great service and everybody else raved about their meals also. Topped off by, due to perhaps to much wine, my camera was left behind. Not a problem - the beautiful Gerry organised for a ferry to deliver it to me at Hideaway island the next day. Just a beautiful location added to by great service and an outstanding meal. Worth the visit - phone for ferry times if you are in town.

After reading reviews on trip advisor, we thought CoCo's would be worth a try. We actually went twice thinking our first meal was an aberration, but we were, sadly, disappointed on both occasions and somewhat mystified by the reviews. For the high prices being changed, the meals are basic and below par (good quality ingredients but wasted by poor preparation and cooking). Wine list is uninteresting. Service is fairly poor, but that's ok in Vanuatu. Setting is lovely, but CoCos need to lift their game to justify the prices. If you're staying at the resort (we were not) do yourself a favour and try elsewhere.

“Not too bad”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2013

We went over for lunch by the water taxi and at the restaurant, there was no real lunch menu on offer. It was a full dinner menu and not much else. If you are not a great seafood eater as I am, there is little choices. The prices as you would expect are on the higher side and the beach was almost devoid of sand with piles of washed up coral in the area where you would normally walk down to take a swim. The accommodation looked quite good, although I didnt stay there and the pool near the road was good but had little to no shade.
