Description: The Mediterranean design, waterfront location and superb cuisine have earned Cafe du Village iconic status in Vanuatu. Just a few steps down a leafy passegway next to the Grand Hotel you will enter into a small coutyard of serenity with split level coral based terraces, vivid white ballustrates, high ceilings, and white louvre shutters. Our local staff are carefully selected for their friendliness and hospitality from the top resort hotels and international cruise lines. We offer a diverse choice of dishes to suit most palates, from our freshly caught fish and lobster (when available), our excellent local beef, to our popular sausage and mash and steak and kidney pie, but make sure you a leave a little space for one of our amazing desserts. With a perfect location, beautiful views over the harbour, breath taking sunsets and fabulous hospitality there is no better place in Port Vila to relax, enjoy and while away the day.

This was our favorite dining experience in Port Vila by far. A cozy patio facing the water, with delicious menu options. Like most venues in Efate, service is relaxed, and prices are what one would pay for a restaurant back home, or even more, but at Café du Village it was a quality dining experience.

Certainly preferred over some of the other higher rated restaurants we tried!

There are many reasons to like this restaurant. The food is excellent as is the service. Friendly attentive but not intrusive service is complimented by a really lovely atmosphere. The tables are set out on three levels all with water views. The decor is really lovely, white walls with blue trimming.
The other really nice thing about this restaurant was that it was quiet, so many restaurant here have live music and it is often quite loud, intrusive and conversation can be difficult.

Having said that, they do have really good live music on Friday evening.
Tables are set with quality cutlery , white table cloths and glasses.

We had several meals and all were delicious. The wine we ordered was excellent and they happily allowed me to byo my preservative free wine and the corkage was very reasonable.

The owners were very welcoming and were genuinely interested in the customers.

On our second visit we were were instantly recognised and the owners and staff seemed genuinely pleased that we had returned. They also remembered our names.

Try Cafe Du Village, you won't be disappointed!
