Description: Tilly's restaurant is the main restaurant of Chantilly's on the Bay hotel. It is inside the hotel building - situated out front on the water. With a diverse menu - that fits with the hotels tag line - Port Vila's best little international hotel. We like to think of Tilly's as the best place in town, with great, views, great service, great food and a great wine list. Do try us out.

Look-out over the bay whilst you enjoy your meal. The menu whilst not extensive gives value for money and can recommend the Thai style fish and the 200g filet.

Willing to overlook the "island time" service speed as you are going to get this in every restaurant in Port Vila, however, it is inexcusable to have dead bugs floating in the glasses of water. It is even worse to giggle at the situation rather than apologise profusely and replace the water.

It was extremely quiet on the night we dined (only one other table of 2 except for our group of 4) so we would have thought a bit of extra care would go into the food. Meals were pretty forgettable; serves of hot chips were a mix of over and under cooked. Burgers were good but oddly sweet. Pasta described as one thing but served as another. If you are staying at the hotel it might make sense to visit more than once, but we wouldn't recommend traveling for this one.

Thank you for taking the time to review us, your feedback is vital to our ongoing improvement. We can fully appreciate your concern regarding bugs floating in the water which is totally unacceptable. Sometimes in Ni-Vanuatu culture giggling and laughing in awkward situations is evident, however this was not the right time to do so and this feedback helps with our staff training. Thank you for your feedback regarding the meals you ate, we usually get rave reviews about our burgers and homemade pastas and our fries are usually cooked to perfection. It is unfortunate that your experience was not to the same level. If you are travelling back to Port Vila we would love to welcome you back to try us out again.

Rare wet day in September. So headed to Tilly’s for breakfast. Pancakes and coffee were first class and very reasonably priced. Sat on balcony that overhangs the water. Great place to spend two hours looking at the ocean.

Had amazing breakfasts while staying at Chantillys on the bay. Staff were super friendly with excellent customer service. The evening meals are also nice, all the food has fabulous presentation.
They also go the extra mile, we purchased a coconut at the local markets and asked if they could cut it up for us but they did more than just cut it up also deep fried some of the fresh coconut which was amazing.
