Very nice waterside location for lunch - seafood platter. Very fresh and tasty. They have Tusker on tap (bonus)

We recently enjoyed dinner here. I had the lamb shanks which was nice and my sister had fillet mignion. Although we enjoyed our food and the restaurant we opted to visit other restaurants rather then return again.

Hey! Why can't there be a nice restaurant in Port Vila with nice chairs and decor to sit on. Paying $30 AUD for a steak and sitting on plastic bunnings chairs is a bit weird. The food was excellent, recommend the Steaks!

Great location and amazing waterfront views, the food and service was great, I had the most delicious pizza one night and seafood crepe another night and both were superb. I perhaps enjoyed one to many Tucker beers but was worth the headache in the morning....More

We ate at this restaurant several times and always enjoyed it. Beautiful location on the harbour. Lots of variety on the menu so it suited everyone. The staff were very obliging.

Lovely food and the atmosphere was very pretty but the food was very over priced for what you got and it was very quick service.

After eating here and enjoying the atmosphere we returned later in the week for another round. We were not disappointed. Good service, nice food and the local guys providing the music were great. I loved the fresh Lime juice.. the best in town!
