Romantic Dinner

First Timer’s Guide to Vanuatu – Dining out the island way

Whether you’re travelling solo, with family, friends or your better half, our ‘first timers series’ has the perfect list of things to point you in the right direction. At the end of the day, we want you to be EXCITED about your trip to our island paradise – not stressed!

Here’s the third in our series – dining out the island way!

Dining out the island way

While you’re welcome to dine with us in-house each day and night, there are a few Vanuatu eateries restaurants and eateries we encourage you to experience during your Vanuatu holiday.

At the Resort

We have our Lobby Bar for all day dining and drinks; the Verandah Restaurant is where you’ll enjoy breakfast (the best latte’s in Villa), lunch and dinner overlooking the tranquil lagoon below; and our Pool Bar is where the finest wood fired pizzas in Vanuatu can be enjoyed (and absolutely delicious cocktails, if we do say so ourselves).

Then we have three nights (Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays) where you’re able to enjoy a dining under the stars themed dinner experience which is a must-do during your stay.

But if it’s a true romantic experience you’re looking for, you can’t go past our exclusive Stay Romantic dining event where you can enjoy the superb service of your own personal waiter while dining in a private, tiki torch-lit cabana overlooking the tranquil waters of Erakor Lagoon.

Vanuatu eateries

When you do decide to step out, check out our recommendations below.

La Houstelet – Traditional French Cuisine in a cosy eclectic environment. It’s a Vanuatu icon and Clement will love a chat.

La Fournil French Bakery – You’ll think you’re in downtown Paris (well, that’s if Paris was actually on a tropical island of course) when you bite into one of the exquisite French pastries from La Fournil.

Mama’s Markets – When you visit Mama’s Markets in downtown Port Vila, enjoy lunch with the locals in one of the Mama’s Kitchen eateries. They are incredibly friendly and super obliging, and your patronage will make their day.


Regardless of your dining preference, chat to our team upon arrival and let’s create a Vanuatu culinary experience for you to enjoy.
