Stunning spot to stop, but too many animals sharing the tables for my liking, cats, birds etc...food was very average and staff very bored.

My husband and I came to this place on a Sunday afternoon for lunch. I noticed a group of loud drunk men sitting near as but did not think much of it.. Ordered food, which I can tell you is edible but certainly NOT WORTH...the elevated prices. During our meal, a live band started playing. We finished eating and decided to stay a bit longer to listen to the band. I took my phone out to have a picture of the band playing and suddenly one of the drunk men, picked up his beer bottle and threw his beer at me!!!! The worst part was that the owner did not really care about this situation until my husband threatened to call the police, then and only then I got an apology for the violent behavior of the man and the appalling treatment we got from the owner, who by the way thought 2 soft drinks could make up for ruining our afternoon and having me suffer a panic attack due to the shock I endured of this event. NOT WORTH THE TIME OR MONEY.More

We were lucky enough to have an overnight stay in Port Vila from a Cruise Ship from Australia. We had a fabulous dinner in the restaurant and saw the most Amazing Fire show! The staff were all super friendly and we had a great time....They take $AU and there is an Aussie fella who runs the bar and he was a great bloke too. Highly recommend you go there and get a good spot on the sand to watch the fire show. It was brilliant. If you can get there just before sundown you can get some awesome sunset photos too.More

This is a must see event during your visit to Port Vila. The food and drink prices are much cheaper than the resorts. The Fire Show is phenomenal. These young guys and girls demonstrate their pyrotechnic skills to music.

After a great day snorkelling on Hideaway island we decided to have a cold drink here and really enjoyed the serenity. Did not have the pleasure to enjoy a wood fired pizza, but they looked great.

A relaxing place to have anything from breakfast to end of day drink on the edge of Mele Bay. Very affordable food. Friday nights fire performers are well worth seeing. Laid back place where you can chill out after the days activities. Definitely keep in...mind. Also excepts Australian Dollars saving you trips into Port Vila. Great atmosphere.More
