A very relaxed setting for a nice dinner. Food was on par with other 'higher class' restaurants in Port Villa, but the fish curry was absolutely sensational. Our large family gathering (20-odd) all tried it over the three times we went (!) and agreed is one of the best they've had. The service here is awesome - Mark, our waiter on two occasions, was so friendly and helpful, and so very accommodating to the kids!

Food was ok (got sweet potato mash) instead of sweet corn , was out of season apparently! Meal Expensive for what it was. Have to pay for WiFi also. Staff friendly

This was a good food stop. Good quality and friendly staff. Dinner was on the steep side for cost, but no different to what you would pay in Australia - the price of tourism.

Went to Waterfront on a recent trip to Vanuatu with a group of 6 people. There were restrictions with the seafood choices due to seasonality but when in doubt, I went with the "fish of the day" which was Red Snapper. It was cooked to perfection, served with a lime butter sauce. The other guests similarly chose seafood and were also pleased with their meals except for one order of grilled chicken which was very dry and disappointing. The views and ambience was excellent as was the background singing of one of the locals. Service was friendly and efficient. Pricing was reasonable. Make sure you try their own home made Coconut pie served with coconut ice-cream. Yummy!

This place is right on the water and you can almost catch your own fish dish you are that close. Sit under the traditional palm leafed roofed huts/bures and enjoy the water views. The menu is as expected on the water and an abundance of seafood available with the Lobster i thought was reasonably price at $5500 Vatu for such a big lobster and plentiful in meat. Unfortunately we were unable to sit together as a group due to not making a reservation, so i recommend a booking if you have a large group, we only sat at the next table so no issue. Pencil it in for a meal either Lunch or dinner.
