Little paradise restaurant is similar to Chez Louis and hide away restaurant 3 minutes drive back towards Louganville. The food was nice (sides need work) and the view is awesome. The carvings on the poles are interesting

Had lunch here as part of a local indigenous tour and really enjoyed it. Dont be in a hurry as your meals may take a while and only take cash. Nice place for a swim, relax and lunch. Enjoyed my fish and chips, worth a visit.

My husband had the Santo Beef in Garlic Pepper Sauce and it too was very tasty 2000vt. Order your meal and have a beer or a swim, it might... More

This is how I like to experience the local food - fresh, fresh, fresh! How can you beat eating lobster and looking at that water - breath taking colours and so crystal clear. We did order our meals ahead of time and all was ready on our arrival. When looking for this restaurant it is now called Harbour Side. A... More

Was on a tour for the day in and around Espiritu Santo and stopped at this restaurant as part of our tour group. Our driver called ahead to tell the restaurant he had 18 people so they would get started preparing. We were told that the beef in the region was good so most of the adults ordered a steak... More

This is the best restaurant in Vanuatu. The lobster and coconut crab are to die for. When you arrive you order your food and Mary Jo will take you out to the yard where you can select your live crab. It takes about an hour to prepare and cook the food so go for a swim in the most pristine... More

A great little restaurant we had been to around five times. You would never expect such wonderful food in such an isolated location. We have taken groups there and organised ahead. Everytime it has been a great experience with wonderful local produce, including lobster and crab. On our last visit we were treated to a gorgeous warm chocolate cake at... More

Although they have the same menu as Chez Louis, it seems to be a bit cheaper. Food was fresh but took a long time to be served. Location is superb. Please DO NOT order the coconut crab as this is an endangered species that should never be offered on a menu.

The food is fresh and delicious and the prices are very reasonable compared to Vila. Very rustic setting, sand floor and tables and seats made from local timber slabs. Beautiful setting and very enjoyable.
