The staff at the Restaurant give genuine personalized and lively service. The food is amazing and an awesome range in the menu. In addition to normal restaurant they offer private jetty or private beach BBQ. The Beach BBQ was one of best dinners I've ever had. Our chef Richie was a legend! Thanks

We visited The Havannah restaurant for a fabulous dinner. We were not staying in the resort but were lucky enough to get the Jetty table as it was the quiet season (Thank you- this absolutely made our trip to Vanuatu). The food was sensational, the portion sizes are perfect, the taste was absolutely phenomenal! The grounds seemed lovely and the... More

We were not guests here, but we came for lunch upon our stay in Vanuatu. The staff were very nice and the buildings were beautiful and well maintained. It is a perfect location on the white sandy beach and no doubt it would have been nice to say here. We called in planning to have lunch, after looking at the... More

We stopped here for lunch on our round the island drive, the resort looks really well maintained and pretty. We had lunch in a big beautiful dining room overlooking the lagoon. We both ordered the special fish dish of the day, tuna and another reef fish served together with a cold sauce on top, really not nice at all. We... More

Dear sammytina I am sorry you did not enjoy the Hollandaise sauce on your fish, however, you could have told us it was not to your liking as we would have happily prepared and served you something else. We do pride ourselves in providing fresh food to our guests. Kind regards Frederick More

We stopped in here a couple of times for a drink and to eat and the hotel is set in a stunning location surrounded by beautiful waters. The food and drink are good and the prices are on par with what you would pay at a similar resort in the US or Australia. Service is pretty attentive and friendly. Only... More

Dear altervision Thank you for taking the time to write a review about your experience in our restaurant and I am glad you enjoyed the food. The Havannah is promoting itself as an oasis of peace, a quiet and romantic resort and it would simply not work by allowing non-residents guests to use the beach or other facilities. When you...

The food is delicious but be prepared to relax and wait for it. Worth the wait though. Everything we tried was fantastic. For steak lovers the rib eye is bone in.

Dear Mindy J Thank you for your review of our restaurant, and you are absolutely right as we cook everything to order so that it is fresh and it will take a bit longer than restaurants which have pre-cooked items. We hope to see you back soon. Kind regards Frederick More
