The Yacht Club has always been a stock standard venue for a cold drink and standard club fare. With the variety of new competition at Harbourside the older established eateries in town like the Yacht Club will have to lift their game. Last ate at the Yacht Club three years ago and not much has changed - it can no... More

The service could be improved, the food service is timely but they can't cook steak. The beers are cold but wine selection could be improved

Breakfast and lunch at the Macdhui in the last week have been an average experience. The staff are always helpful and try hard; the meals are average however the salad bar is great. The only item off the menu I have enjoyed is their burger with the lot. The ambience is pleasant and the view is of course without equal... More

Modern, western cuisine in the Royal Yacht Club. Large choice of food and drinks. Very clean and comfortable place to eat. You will need someone to sign you in as it's member's and registered guests only.

A must do when visiting Port Morsby is to watch the sun set at the Macdhui Royal Yacht Club. Wonder inside and enjoy the beautiful food in the restaurant.

The buffet was okay... I asked if they had a dessert that was a milk free but they said the chef had gone for the day and there was no written note about the content of the desserts:-(

Terrible service. We have to continually go inside from the veranda to get drinks. Wine bottles put on our table at 7.10pm at 7.30 still waiting for wine glasses. Apparently there are none available in the club!

Awesome grill food and good choices of wine. The value for money is good considering the general high price tag to eat out in Port Moresby.

This is a good all-round bar and restaurant. Good security (a must have in POM) means you can enjoy the food in safety and relax either inside in air conditionity or out on the open-air shaded tropical deck. Food can be a little slow when they're busy, but it's a good all-rounder with seafood, steaks, curries, hot stone-cooked food, pies,... More
