Dining & Eating Out In Vanuatu

Dining out should be part of every visitor’s Vanuatu experience.

There are more restaurants in and around Port Vila than you can poke a fork at… well, around 30 actually… and when you combine fresh local seafood and excellent local beef with creative chefs you have the best dining in the South Pacific. All guests who arrange travel through Tropical Holiday Deals receive a comprehensive, up-to-date guide to dining out in and around Port Vila.

Here is an overview of some of the dining options:

For dinner perhaps…

  • La Tentation: Right on the harbour where the famous Rossi Restaurant once was – stylish décor, great food
  • Bungalow:Ate (Sunset Bungalows): Nice lagoon location with an excellent chef
  • Tilly’s: Tapas, NZ lamb, eclectic blackboard menu overlooking the harbour
  • L’Houstalet: Vila’s most famous French restaurant (host Clement Martinez hasn’t changed the menu in 30 years – if it ain’t broke…)
  • Michener’s: Iririki Island Resort’s signature restaurant looking back over the water to Port Vila town
  • Le Lagon: There is an Asian Fusion restaurant and teppanyaki bar (Wild Ginger)

For lunch perhaps…

  • Tamanu on the Beach: One of Vila’s prettiest locations overlooking the beach and ocean
  • Paradise Cove: Another harbourside spot for fine Italian – take a towel for a swim or snorkel
  • Aqua on Erakor: Erakor Island Resort’s restaurant sitting right on the lagoon.
  • The Officer’s Club: Excellent restaurant at Benjor Beach Club on Devil’s Point Road for a lazy lunch (especially after working up an appetite at Mele Cascades)
  • Breaka’s Beach Resort: Dine on the terrace and take a towel for a swim from the beach or in the pool
  • The Waterfront Bar and Grill: Casual ambience with clinking masts, good for lunch or dinner
  • Chill Restaurant & Bar: Upstairs harbourside near the markets – great view, food and value with a terrific lunch special that includes a soft drink, beer or glass of wine.
