Had an awesome lunch with a couple of mojitos. Great view, great location, tasty food. We had the tuna tartare, beef ribs and some side salads. Everything was delicious. My favourite meal so far (in a week).

This place is beautifully located on the harbourfront with unobstructed views. They serve nice cocktails and simple but good food.

We decided to visit reefers as we were recommended. The setting is a bit over the place for my likings, if you can get a table near the water front then thats a bonus. It was a stunning view overlooking the port. Our waiter was...More

"Island Spirit" review 2017 (Air Vanuatu's in-flight magazine) "Reefers Restaurant and Rum Bar is relatively new to Vanuatu, with three of Port Vila’s well-known hospitality identities pooling their talents in 2016 to bring the first and only Rum Bar with an emphasis on great meals to our shores. With a fast-growing reputation of being a “foodie” venue it serves lunch and dinner with casual meals from burgers, tacos and salads to a truly romantic dining experience with the likes of their huge seafood platter, succulent pork belly and famous signature dish of King Prawn and Squid Ink Gnocchi. Located on the water at the edge of town just past the end of the foreshore boardwalk, it’s an authentic tropical dining experience under the huge thatch roof with great ambiance and music to accompany the stunning ocean and sunset views over the bay. And with an ever-growing list of exotic rums from around the world at reasonable prices It’s certainly a must visit destination"
