Set overlooking the water you can watch the fish while waiting for your meal. It's a quiet & well layed out place . The menu is good & the cocktail list is full. We had the wood fired pizza which was fantastic. Good, friendly service....More

This French restaurant by the bay is great. The food is delicious combined with breathtaking view of Fatumaru Bay. Truly highly recommended to visit.

On our last night in Port Vila, my wife decided we should try the pizza - we'd passed the restaurant earlier and taken note of their "Pizza Hot" sign which reminded us of a certain pizza chain. They do home delivery, so we called and...More

Au Fare totally deserves its positive reviews. The location beside the bay affords great views of nearby islands and the open sea. The wait staff are attentive and efficient. The menu whilst not comprehensive has all the basics and the prices are reasonable. We had...More

Very slow inattentive service on the night we visited. The French speaking customers seemed to get preference. The food was also poor. Market fish suggests fresh not frozen fish. Really disappointing. Worst meal in a week in Port Vila.

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!
