We popped in for lunch while exploring the coast road and while we were disappointed to find that the oysters needed to be pre-ordered (although we understood, as they are harvested fresh daily) we still enjoyed a delicious lunch of lobster salad and mud crab...More

Wonderful imaginative menu show casing local produce. Tasty ceviche and amazing sweet potato croquettes. The chocolate ribs and lobster are to die for! The Sunday buffet is outstanding. Staff are friendly, super helpful and very attentive. Do yourself a favour and dine here!

Great speedy service but the food was Quite expensive. Ceviche was great, but perhaps stay away from anything not seafood based as it was pretty average for the resort type prices. Yobbo loud mouth guests interrupting mid-dinner didn't help with the quiet restful ambience. #KutaInThePacificMore

Description
Oyster Island Resort Restaurant - 100% waterfront, set overlooking the tranquil waters of Peterson Bay, Oyster Island is elegant yet casual, serving only 100% Organic Fresh Island Grown and Market Fresh Produce, Sustainable locally caught seafood, and the famous Organic Santo Beef. Weather its a romantic 3 course wine matched special occasion, or a sand between your toes casual lunch, Oyster Island caters to all. Our Sunday BBQ Lunch Buffet is legendary - featuring local live music, and too many dishes to mention. Reservations essential. Drive north on the east coast road until you come to the sign, drive through the village to the 'landing'. Bang the tank to let our boat crew know you need a pick up, and sit back, enjoy the waterfront view, sip a cocktail and let the Oyster Island staff pamper you with the Ni-Vanuatu smiles and hospitality that this country is renown for.
