Friendly, attentive staff with a great atmosphere - candlelit dinner overlooking the lagoon and can hear the water washing ashore. Had the chicken,brie and cranberry burger which was the best burger i've ever had. Dessert was creme brûlée which was also very good! The food was very affordable costing us only 2500VT including a beer each.

We had been recommended to try the breakfast at Chantilly's and our experience did not disappoint, it was excellent. The service was very very good, polite and efficient. Each of the meals was very well presented and a delight to dine on. We will dine there again.

Looking for a decent coffee, good service and an old-school big breakfast? Chantillys is the place. Like many places in Port Vila, it took a hit from cyclone Pam last year. The beautiful jetty has not been rebuilt and was a place for a sunset cocktail or a candle-lit dinner. Bright, open and designed to get sea views and breezes-it... More

We stayed at Chantillys on the last night of our trip, due mainly to proximity of airport and early departure. No problems with overall condition of room, staff friendly. However we awoke to a strange sound in our room to find a rat eating a banana that had been provided with our breakfast (needless to say breakfast not eaten). My... More

We enjoyed a very good dinner at this venue, All dishes were tastefully arranged and the restaurant was very quiet. Quality of the meal was excellent, Is probably one of the best restaurants in Port Vila.

I decided to stay at Chantilly's due to its close proximity to Port Vila Township and the rooms with balconies overlooking the harbour. It's also got a nice beach bar right next door where you can lounge on beanbags or chairs in the sand and sip on nice cocktails and nibbles. The breakfast is also quite good, we just had... More

I've stayed at many Port Vila hotels over the years, but nowadays I just come back to Chantilly's. Excellent value. It's not right in the town centre, but is within easy walking distance, and Port Vila minibuses (with a "T" registration plate) are numerous and will take you anywhere in town for 150V. And waking up (and breakfasting) to that... More
