Took our team have some great local fresh seafood, most of us had seafood platters for two which included lobster (self chosen from fresh tank) balance made up of prawns, muscles, fish, calamari, salad etc. Very good food and excellent service.

The service was good and prompt. The pizza was delicious. We found all food in Vanuatu to be expensive, this place wasn’t too badly overpriced
