Fantastic food. Sourced mainly locally with as a few as possible off Island ingredients. They have amazing specials ( especially the Veal Cutlets!!! thanks for the tip Marc) and the atmosphere is relaxed tropical. This is the kind of place where you can have a quality dinging experience but don't feel the need to be over dressed. It is about... More

Excellent food, well presented and friendly service. The description of a great restaurant. Specialist change on a daily basis, making this a good spot for regular dinners. A must for Port Vila visitors!!

The restaurant and resort were faultless. We had a superb family vacation to celebrate the New Year; we were treated as family as well as guests. Rooms were spacious and clean and we felt a thousand miles away from the bustle of Port Vila yet close enough to visit the capital. The staff were very welcoming and assisted us for... More

The roof over the main restaurant is just amazing in both height and complexity. The whole area was tastefully furnished with dining, bar and lounge areas. We had a nice table overlooking the garden and water which we enjoyed before sunset. My husband had the mahi-mahi and salad and I had the filet mignon and vegetables which was complemented by...

We were not patrons of the resort but stumble upon this place and had a breakfast. Great location, quiet, good views, the owner is well traveled and friendly. Strongly recommend this place. Take your snorkelling gear!

We wanted a day out a beach away from our resort to try something different and were recommended Paradise Cove and what a lovely place it was!! Although there is no direct access to the water via sand, it is good for diving and watching the day go by. The restaurant was very good and the staff were happy to... More

We had Christmas 2016 dinner here. We arrived at our resort and had no bookings so we took a walk to Paradise Cove Restaurant. The staff here were great and very accommodating. They where quick with their service and the food was great. Most dishes were seafood. The best part was the view and atmosphere of the place ... just... More

The Trip Advisor rating was spot on! We chose to stay at Paradise Cove resort partly because the restaurant rated so highly - and we were not disappointed! Travelling on a honeymoon with a small child, staying at a resort with both superb restaurant AND babysitting meant we had many stress-free and some quite lovely, romantic dinners - without having...

We loved the melanesian dishes so much, we went back twice to re-order on later nights. That good! The staff were very attentive in providing any recommendations and were super friendly and professional. The restaurant has two choices of where to eat, up in the open atrium bar area (with a wide view of the water), or down in an... More
