The place is along Fatumaru Bay and has a good view of the water and Iririki Resort in front of Waterfront Bar and Grill. I would normally come here for dinner and options include local fish and their local beef. They would normally have a solo singer that would play while you are having dinner or drinks while you have... More

We had a few cocktails at sunset which was lovely. You can't see the sun setting entirely but the colours are pretty and the water is beautiful. The only reason we didn't return to this bar again during our trip was due to the 'over friendly staff'. We spent 1 hour at the bar and for 45 minutes we had... More

We had a dinner here which we thoroughly enjoyed. Great setting right on the waterfront. Peaceful with live background music. Staff were friendly & quick. We never had to ask for anything. The meals were a good size, fairly priced & well done. The menu is extensive with so much choice (recommend the seafood crepe).

Thought we would stop here after doing a bit of a bus trip around the island and stopping at various bars to have a look, was with our two teenagers. Last day of our 5 day break. No free wi fi, the wifi sucks at the best of times on Vanuatu, but they wanted to charge us to use it... More

I had visited a couple of times a little over 13 years ago and had to go back. My wife and I visited during a stopover on a cruise and we were not disappointed. Relaxed atmosphere with water view. Lovely fresh food and cold drinks. Highly recommended.

Wow, gorgeous spot to have a relaxed family dinner. The food was great, and our server, Marc, was just the bees knees, he was really truly wonderful.

Thought we would venture out of Iririki for a reasonably priced dinner in Port Vila. It was the same price and wasn't as good quality with smaller servings and we were overcharged on a number items. Wanted it to be great but unfortunately it wasn't. Very lovely staff though.

Always visit when we are in Vanuatu. Good position and friendly staff. The food is good and the credit card charge isn't as high as other places. This time I enjoyed the grilled fish and my partner the Tahitian salad. Both good. Also house wine is nice with lunch and not expensive.
