Good food at very reasonable prices. Staff were friendly and service was, for Vila, prompt. Typical menu for Vila but nonetheless interesting. .

The food was good and the drinks were of value (a big margarita) Service was fast and efficient The view would be great during the day looking out on the bay.

Beautiful surroundings , slightly expensive for the type of food but the atmosphere makes up for it.

Staff overcharged us on our bill during what they called happy hour which after questioning was only 10% discount. They did offer a refund when bought to their attention . Other than that the view was good and the food was ok

Have stopped here a few times in our 5 week stay. Good meeting place for a drink or bowl of chips. Can't recommend the pizzas

We recently enjoyed dinner here. I had the lamb shanks which was nice and my sister had fillet mignion. Although we enjoyed our food and the restaurant we opted to visit other restaurants rather then return again.

Hey! Why can't there be a nice restaurant in Port Vila with nice chairs and decor to sit on. Paying $30 AUD for a steak and sitting on plastic bunnings chairs is a bit weird. The food was excellent, recommend the Steaks!
