Overlooking the bay this restaurant is situated along the promenade. There were a few items not available off the menu but what we did have was great.
The lasagna and chicken were well cooked and delivered quickly to our table.
It's a perfect spot to watch the ships depart and people watch.
Reasonably priced and friendly staff.

2 mains with a side, local beer and juice 5050 VT

Really nice looking place, but the food does not warrant the cost, lopped on the plate, the veal was over cooked and the pasta was sweet, best part was the garlic bread

Also ran out of the two fish items on the menu :(

I enjoyed a dinner here with a friend last week. The atmosphere is excellent and like all the restaurants on the Port Vila harbour side the views are stunning. The food was nice but a little on the expensive side. Staff looked after us well so all in all I would be more that happy to return for another meal.

Rossi has new owners and the menu and the wine list is still being finalised.
HOWEVER! Frank the head waiter is the constant. He is the most energetic local I have ever met - a great salesman too!
The lobster is amazing - a definite share plate.
Will be good to see what happens with the menu - would be good to see the return of flying fox and some of the wonderful Tanna or Efate organic beef.
Hopefully it will not slip into cheap cuts (at mega prices) that many of the other restaurants offer. It may be ok for the tourists from the cruise ships on their whirlwind lunch visits - but for those staying for a week or more it is very disappointing.
Fingers crossed that the new owners listen and learn from their staff! Good luck Rossi!
