We had dinner there. Lovely walk in through perfectly done gardens and sitting over lagoon in great setting it seemed perfect. It was probably the worst meal ever eaten. 'Eye fillet' was tough and not eye fillet, fish curry inedible, salad a few limp leaves with bottled dried tomatoes olives and artichokes. Really expensive, 3,200VT, $AUS37 for fillet steak, it...

This is a wonderful restaurant - relaxed setting, wonderful position and incredible food. We went there for a special occasion and we were not disappointed. One word of warning -- the serves are generous.. We ordered entree sized dishes so that we could enjoy one of their many fabulous desserts. The French wine was magnificent!!

Amazing setting on the river, complementary fresh warm bread rolls (which we had to get seconds of) , I had a chicken breast stuffed with mango & prawns. Which was cooked... More

We were in Vauatu last week and ate here on Wednesday night. The setting is just lovely and even though it was raining there were still fish to see and we didn't get at all wet. Felt a bit sorry for the staff though. For starters we ordered a pate and a plate of mussels to share. The pate was... More

Wow what a great restaurant, out on the jetty over the lagoon. Went there 2 times as the food was beautiful. The steak melted in your mouth and the chicken stuffed with prawns and mango was to die for and I wish we found this restaurant at the beginning of our trip as I think we would have eaten there...

We were looking to find somewhere a little bit special to dine and we certainly found it in vila chaumieres. The setting is beautiful, we had a table right by the water and were able to watch the fish whilst we dined. The food was very good and thoroughly enjoyed by us all. The eye fillet just melted in your... More

I had a bit of a problem to find good vegetarian food in port vila. On our last night we went to Vila Chaumieres as it was next to our accommodation. The vegetarian Curry was served in a coconut and came with rice, a homemade mango chutney and side salad. Very authentic flavors and beautiful presentation! My partner had the... More

Gorgeous location. Seafood is the go here, but pate and wine also fabulous. My husbands steak over cooked and average. Just get used to the expense of vanuatu!
