There are better places for better value. The food quality was OK and it came out in pretty good time, but we did fins that there were better places to eat out as we stayed on.

That is what we said many years ago after discovering Thai. We have pretty much stuck to that, as well. However our once favourite Thai in PV has gone to the dogs since the Thai owner left town. So we tried Harbour View last night,...More

a very casual affair on a sunday, the food is good and the service is quick, have had both the takeaway & restaurant, the takeaway is abit of a letdown but the restaurant is great.

The best Chinese in Port Vila but probably not the best you will ever have. They do a reasonable job given it must be hard to keep all the specialist ingredients in stock but some of the food seems a bit improvised. Overall OK, not...More

I go there quite often and ave never been disappointed. Great food, low prices, nice staff and good views. Also air conditioned. The best Chinese restaurant in town. Ask for the combination soup!

since this establishment has changed hands, it has lost not only its charm, but the food is nowhere near as good as what it was, or as good as neighbouring eating houses. The prices also have gone through the roof. We certainly won't be back.

Grab a bus or taxi as the previous post suggested. Remember it will be very humid and unless you are used to high humidity, it will be an extremely long and arduous walk.

Port Vila doesn't really recognise areas and maps like most. When you drive along the waterfront (away from the port) you will see them up the hill to your right. Otherwise give them a call, or any taxi/bus will know exactly... More
