Cafe du Village is located well nearby Iriricki Island ferry. Meals were nice for lunch and staff helpful. Reasonable price for alcohol. Lovely location beside waterfront. Seating inside and out with wifi available.

Steak was tough. No green vegetables. Poorly presented. Didn’t get the usual bread roll. No water brought to the table. Staff confused over bill and made the whole process very stressful. Very disappointing as this is our usual go to place when in Vanuatu.More

This place was awesome. The staff were so accommodating and made my birthday celebrations one to remember for a longtime. Nothing was too much trouble. Even organised the boat back to irikiki island from there waterfront because it was raining. Well worth a look.

The Mediterranean design, waterfront location and superb cuisine have earned Cafe du Village iconic status in Vanuatu. Just a few steps down a leafy passegway next to the Grand Hotel you will enter into a small coutyard of serenity with split level coral based terraces, vivid white ballustrates, high ceilings, and white louvre shutters. Our local staff are carefully selected for their friendliness and hospitality from the top resort hotels and international cruise lines. We offer a diverse choice of dishes to suit most palates, from our freshly caught fish and lobster (when available), our excellent local beef, to our popular sausage and mash and steak and kidney pie, but make sure you a leave a little space for one of our amazing desserts. With a perfect location, beautiful views over the harbour, breath taking sunsets and fabulous hospitality there is no better place in Port Vila to relax, enjoy and while away the day.
