The food is excellent, the service is good, the ambiance is pleasant and the only complaint is it is a tad on the pricy side.

We were fortunate to pop in here for a coffee and bite to eat. We were greeted by very friendly locals with lots of advice as to what to see and do while we were there. The coffee was hot, the fruit plate divine and we were pleasantly surprised when we were offered toast and home made apricot jam as... More

My wife and I went here for date night and were delighted by this quaint little cafe/restaurant. The waitstaff were all very freindly, proffesional and efficient and the soft lighting and music while sitting by the water makes for a very pleasant atmosphere. We felt very welcomed. The highlights of our meal were definately the hand made spring rolls and... More

We are staying at Iririki Island and so this beautiful restaurant is 3 minutes away. I am so happy we went to Le Cafe du Village!! The staff were amazing from the moment we walked in with our 2 year old daughter. They got her a cushion for her high chair and showed her how the light on our table... More

We went there for dinner and ordered for day's special Steam fish and my wife ordered for Mussels cooked in coconut cream. both the meal was so delicious that we kind of over-dosed ourselves. The atmosphere very nice for dinner. This is one of our best meal in Port Vila without a doubt.

Visited Port Vila last week and ate out most nights. While a number of the restaurants disappointed Le Cafe Du Village lived up to expectations. The waterfront location, the wonderful seafood fettuccine and the outstanding service provided by Wendy ensure a visit in the future.

Warm and friendly staff compliment the excellent food and equally as stunning waterfront location next to the Grand Hotel in Port Vila. This is a place for any occasion whether to meet for coffee, breakfast, lunch or dinner on business or pleasure. Relaxed atmosphere in a truly unique setting. You'll enjoy.

The sign lured us in. Much cheaper prices than we'd been paying in the resort and the food was exceptional with great service and a really nice view of the harbour. Hope you didn't get too much damage from TC Donna. Highly recommend.

The restaurant is cute and the waitresses are nice, but they really cannot cook a fillet properly. I asked for a medium raw, and they brought me an overcooked fillet, and the potatoes were not cooked and did not taste much. I sent it back, and they brought a totally raw piece of meat. They are nice and trying hard,... More

The Mediterranean design, waterfront location and superb cuisine have earned Cafe du Village iconic status in Vanuatu. Just a few steps down a leafy passegway next to the Grand Hotel you will enter into a small coutyard of serenity with split level coral based terraces, vivid white ballustrates, high ceilings, and white louvre shutters. Our local staff are carefully selected for their friendliness and hospitality from the top resort hotels and international cruise lines. We offer a diverse choice of dishes to suit most palates, from our freshly caught fish and lobster (when available), our excellent local beef, to our popular sausage and mash and steak and kidney pie, but make sure you a leave a little space for one of our amazing desserts. With a perfect location, beautiful views over the harbour, breath taking sunsets and fabulous hospitality there is no better place in Port Vila to relax, enjoy and while away the day.
