We got a table outside; just perfect to relax on a hot day at noon. Our server got our orders right away; drinks were brought promptly - but I had to get up to find out about our food about 25 minutes later. My fish stew was OK; my wife's steak was overcooked and tepid. Wifi signal was great.

AS we arrived late in Vila do Porto and did not want to change clothes tooka seat in the restaurant's terrace. Lucky to found the best waitress in town, always a smile, explain in deep all the menu posts, the food was good so we return every night there, no need to write anything else.

Ate here twice and both times was happy about the food. Just order the salad or the frites! Salad, 1,50€, just some lettuce with carrot and two pices of tomato. Thats not a salad! That's garnish😂! Frites.... Pail and cold! Besides those two items everything was good and the portions a big and very affordable.

Small restaurant with a short menu but with a cuisine with character. Local food cooked in the local style, nice. The prices also affordable, good quality-price average. The only defect we found when revising the bill, we notice that, instead of the wine we drank it was another one that costed two times in it and on top of that... More

Pleasant friendly service at reasonable price. Lunch of 'soup and dish-of the-day' recommended. Dinner of 'Alcatara' ok with good flavour but a tad dry. Cod with garlic is appealing. Recommended

A quick lunch as we toured the island. I had some very good meat soup and husband had a ham and cheese sandwich. We also shared morcilla, local sausage and local cheese. A plain simple and satisfying lunch, with good coffee.

Very Central in Port Vila. It is open from early allowing us to take a breakfast comfortably installed in one of the terraces available. Highlight the presentation of the breakfast which is served in mug and custom dishes (not the glass cup "traditional"). The times we were to Garrouchada never had problems with the kitchen schedule. Fast service and service... More

Price of beer was too high.The prices were higher than the prices stated on the menu. Why is a half serving not at half price ?I would have preferred a much smaller serving at a much lower price.Why was there no choice of roast beef on an island which has so many beef cattle grazing on your volcanic hills ?Instead...

Having very fresh fish available helps a lot to serve a perfect grilled or deep fried fish but on top of that the meat is also great. I'll be back!
