Worth going there for the pizza. Unfortunately, dishes that we really wanted to order including steak and carpaccio were not available. I wouldn't call it a French restaurant but it has good pizza none the less.

Loved the dancing we saw, a real highlight! Pizza was nice as was the steak but nothing special. No high chair for our toddler so we spent the whole meal taking turns chasing her around as she won't sit on us.

Au Faré Restaurant is a well known French Restaurant in Port Vila. A mix of island cuisine and the "savoir faire" of the French gastronomy. You will find here fresh seafood direct from the ocean, organic meat from Vanuatu, and delicious pizzas. You will also find coconut crabs from the personal livestock of the owner Romuald. Come and enjoy great food and a beautiful ocean view!
