Rely great food and very friendly staff. The only reason I have put 4 instead of 5 is because there were a few things on the menu which weren't available, but I think we were just s bit unlucky and it might be the time we visited - Independence Day - As it seems most things are on a bit... More

My wife and I found Restaurant 1606 completely by accident on our visit in June 2015. After a fairly long walk from town, we enjoyed a cold drink and relax before walking back into town again! Time ran out for us on that trip, but we have Restaurant 1606 on our "must do" list for our next visit to Santo... More

We have been 3 nights at the resort and ate here all the time. We didn't try the international dishes and went instead only for the local food. Portions were abundant and quality was good. The steaks were particularly great! A bit off the town center unfortunately but a good choice!

We were lucky enough to spend 6 nights staying at the Village de Santo celebrating my daughters 16th Birthday. We had several excellent meals at 1606. The first night I enjoyed a fantastic Lobster Mornay, my husband Chicken Roulade stuffed with Prawns and my daughter Reef and Beef the dearest of these meals was 3400vt which is $42.50A. The next...

Overall good quality food..... But if your hungry you are going to need to get a personal loan to pay for the meal... And considering your sitting in the driveway of a bottle shop on the main road😁 .. Too expensive... Example $60 aud for reef and beef.... The steak was not a gram over 100 cheapest meals are $30aud... More

A must try if you are in Santo. Good service and the food selection is really good. I stayed at the resort and ate at 1606 every evening. Never got bored with their food. Try their local lobster on the tapas menu. So good. And they were doing very well with their beef dishes. A thumb up!

Found this small restaurant particularly enjoyable on a recent visit to Luganville. Easy to access and boasting a good menu with delectable food and great service this is a must. Only sorry that we discovered it at the end of our stay rather than at the start of it.

This is a good restaurant. The owners are always welcoming and friendly. The menu selection is huge: probably too big. Stick to the fresh dishes cooked on the spot and you will have a great meal. Both lunch and dinner are good. It is a little way out of town and too far to walk but the taxis are very... More

Divine breakfasts - the french toast is a masterpiece! The dinner range is impressive, from really good tender organic beef, to mixed tapas, to lobster. And for lunch, a great range of burger options as well as salads. Nothing it too much trouble - one night they purchased and roasted a pig for our group, and it was done to... More
