We've been to Vanuatu a few times now, but this was our first time at Tilly's. Our party was 2 adults and two young boys, one with special needs. Just lovely!! The staff were wonderful, the food was delicious - nothing was a problem. We will definitely return.

dropped in on our way to the airport, but a little disappointed, the food was good but not everything that it claimed to be. The service was ok but the restaurant needs a good clean, and everything took forever to be served.

Went with high expectations of some lovely seafood but was a little disappointed with my seafood. The fish dish I had was only average. Fish was dry and the vegetables cold. My partners dish was much better. Service was excellent, location fantastic.

This was my favourite refuge for years but it has changed. The jetty out in the water got destroyed in cyclone Pam and the new owners have no intention of replacing it. They have extended the railing and blocked the access. My days of gazing at the fish and the coral with a coffee in my hand are gone. On... More

We came here for dinner and sat out on the balcony overlooking the harbour and the sunset. Absolutely beautiful! The food was good, but the restaurant wasn't very full. Our very friendly waitress told us they are more popular for breakfast, but we had a wonderful time and meal for dinner. Coffee is very good too! Really enjoyed it and... More

Lovely place to dine, make sure you take a table on the deck overlooking the bay. Good service, great food, very reasonably priced. Good cocktail deals, staff always willing to help. Put this place on your list when in Port Vila.

Tilly's restaurant is the main restaurant of Chantilly's on the Bay hotel. It is inside the hotel building - situated out front on the water. With a diverse menu - that fits with the hotels tag line - Port Vila's best little international hotel. We like to think of Tilly's as the best place in town, with great, views, great service, great food and a great wine list. Do try us out.
