What an absolute gem of a restaurant. By far the best food of our week in Vanuatu. My tuna steak was cooked to perfection and the burgers were first rate. Highly recommend!

My family and I spent two half days at Wahoo, enjoying the great food, excellent and friendly service. George (Bar Manager) and the team really looked after us, and the owner Michael (if I recall correctly) was also very friendly and to his credit really empowered his team to run the place and interact with the customers. I highlight this... More

This should easily be in the top 10 resturants in Vanuatu! The food is fantastic and they are more than happy for you to go for a snorkel off the deck prior to your meal so bring your snorkel gear because there are a lot of fish! I myself had the Mud Crab and it was beautiful! Tender and curried.... More

Your review is awesome. Really enjoyed your company too. The Glass Bottom Boat is actually operated by Turtle Reef Cruises and they leave Wahoo Bar every day at 10.00am for the snorkeling/beach tour you mentioned and they get back here at 12.30pm just in time for a hearty lunch. They have another tour that leaves at 2.15 every afternoon. It... More

Service was great, the outlook from the restaurant and bar is terrific, we experienced rough seas all around the island until Port Havannah and it was just magic. We were a group of ten people that walked in and it wasn't a problem at all! The food was very fast and the drinks were cold!

Frequently the weather and seas here at Havannah are different. If it is raining in Port Vila that does not mean its raining here. We have our own, drier microclimate. As for groups, they are no problem. Our kitchen loves the challenge of delivering fast and tasty food. Thanks for taking the time to write this reveiw. It means a... More

Went to the Wahoo Bar for early dinner and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. We were picked up from our hotel by the owner who shared his story with us. The Wahoo is perfectly positioned for sunset drinks and we enjoyed a couple before ordering. The highlight was an excellent lobster curry which was extremely tasty. The fresh fish of the... More

Just noticed your response and you mentioned it took a bit of time to find us. Thanks for bringing that to our attention. I'll post this as a service to others. When leaving Port Vila drive towards the airport but instead of turning right at the airport roundabout, continue north on the main road that circumnavigates Efate. You will pass... More

Yes, we love our Havannah Resort guests and we love to pick them up and drop them back at the resort. Thanks for the detailed review. It really helps that others can read this and hopefully be encouraged to support our local kitchen and wait staff. We are pretty proud of our food, our cocktails and our service. Sincerely, thanks...

Description
Open 7 days for lunch, this venue is a favourite of locals and tourists looking to get out of Port Vila. Wahoo Bar is right on the water's edge at Havannah Harbour. Renowned for its fresh local seafood, prawn curry and Vanuatu's largest hamburgers, the restaurant has great views and outside seating. Visitors can swim and snorkel on site and the venue is child friendly. The Wahoo Bar is also open for sunset drinks every night and the sunsets can be quite amazing. The restaurant will stay open for dinner but prior reservations must be made.
