We ate here several times during our stay on Erakor and they catered our wedding. Food was delicious, as a vegetarian I thought I would struggle but I had a lot to eat. I kept coming back to the vegetarian curry which was one of the best curries I've eaten. We also had the Sunset Dinner which was amazing. The... More

Visited the Island for the day and had lunch in the restaurant, I have been here before many times on previous visits so it wasn't foreign to me. The location is on the water and you can see the fish swimming near your table. We had a few drinks and ordered some burgers for lunch, unfortunately our order was lost... More

We ate several times at this restaurant. Twice we paddled across in kayaks from Warwick Le Lagon for lunch and once we arrived by water taxi for dinner. The coconut crab is spectacular-but is a huge meal and takes ages to eat. Best to ask the staff to crack it for you. We also tried the local Vanuatu beef.

We had been using this island resort's beach on our regular outings from Warwick Le Lagon's watersports activities, so we decided to come back for lunch - was a great choice. Super fresh Wahoo on a lovely risotto and coconut crab. The staff were amazing, and the food was obviously local and very good!

We dined here a few times during our stay in Vanuatu. The Melanesian night was great. Lunches were very basic - and options were limited, but the specials, which we had twice were absolutely amazing. Amazing service; staff were lovely. Beautiful spot, lagoon is as blue as you can imagine. Looks dreamy at high tide and at night.

Great dining experience, right on the waters edge. Typical island service, very friendly and helpful staff. Lobster and coconut crab were both superb and quite a large portion. Attacking the crab by twilight was a bit of a mission. Thankfully the wife couldn't see how much of a mess I made of my shirt. Great snorkeling straight off the beach... More

Take the bus to Erakor then the ferry across the lagoon and have launch at this great spot. It is peaceful and has a great view looking across the lagoon and out to the reef. Food is tasty and the staff friendly makes you want to stay all day.
