Awesome food, service and venue. The veal tenderloin melts in your mouth. Fresh prawns, coconut chicken curry, wahoo fish burgers, big fala omelette...wow! Happy hour cocktails in the relaxed bar area. Indoor/ outdoor seating. Excellent!!

Travelling to a pacific island you would imagine that you would have things like fresh fish on the menu ... not here! offerings were in the form of chicken parmigiana and beef stew ... NZ$150 for 4 serves of mediocre chicken parmigana not good value...More

Loved the food at Cafe Vila. Mid-range price for Port Vila. Well worth jumping on a bus and making the effort.

We had dinner here on our last night in Vanuatu. We wish we had discovered it earlier. My husband had the chicken curry and said it was the best he’s EVER eaten. My son had the Wahoo fish burger and said it was amazing. Beautiful...More

A pleasant breakfast spot a little bit removed from the noise of the main drag in town. A good spot to relax and take your time drinking a cup of coffee.

We had breakfast once and it was comparable to Sydney prices ~15 for mains. Other mornings we had muesli and yoghurt which we bought from the local supermarket. Takeaway coffees are also good from Cafe Vila
