We ate at Aufare twice during our holiday in Port Vila and we were not disappointed. We were told about it whilst having coffee and pastries at Au peche mignon. It is situated right on the water, and there are couches for those just wanting to have a drink. The food was delicious and well presented. The first time we went we thought the main course came out a bit too quickly after the entree (for us) so second time we ate there we asked the waitress for a break between courses and it was fantastic. During the week there is happy hour between 5.30-7 pm which includes beer wine and cocktails, this makes the dining experience very reasonable. We would recommend this restaurant.

“Fabulous !”
Reviewed August 24, 2014 via mobile

Aufare was recommended to us by someone we met while changing money at Goodies. We originally went there for lunch but were so impressed we went back for dinner a few nights later, and we weren't disappointed. The food is scrumptious, the position on the water is magnificent, the staff are friendly and so obliging.
Between lunch and dinner my husband ordered the grilled fish, tandoori chicken, rump steak, salt & pepper calamari, cheese cake and black chocolate biscuit with ice cream. All of which were great. So if your looking for a lovely restaurant with great food and a great view, you have to go to Aufare. Bon Appetite !

“Wonderful food, fabulous location, great service”
Reviewed August 9, 2014

I highly recommend a dinner or two at Au fare, the best place we ate at in Port Villa and went back a few times. Handy location walking distance from the centre of town or a mini cab ride. Food was wonderful French with a touch of the tropics. The restaurant is set on the water front with a cocktail deck perfect for watching the sunset with a drink in hand on one of the comfortable couches before moving to the table for dinner. By far our favourite place to eat. The owner also has the Au peche mignon bakery cafe in town so the standard is high in quality and service. Very popular with the locals so booking is recommended.
