They make decent pizza and good fried chicken and chips. Service was okay. Not a French restaurant but otherwise good if you want to chill out by the sea and have a quick bite.

Looking forward to an authentic French meal and got deep fried pub meal. Nothing French about this place! I don't know if I'm more disappointed by the menu (not being French), the staff, the bugs from the spot lights shining on us or the meal....More

Au Faré Restaurant is a well known French Restaurant in Port Vila. A mix of island cuisine and the "savoir faire" of the French gastronomy. You will find here fresh seafood direct from the ocean, organic meat from Vanuatu, and delicious pizzas. You will also find coconut crabs from the personal livestock of the owner Romuald. Come and enjoy great food and a beautiful ocean view!
