We spent a week in Luganville and ate twice at 1606. Both times meals were the best we've had in Luganville. You will pay a little more than elsewhere but it is worth the extra in my opinion.

We had a tapas feast with lobster, Italian Sausage, twice cooked duck and santo beef croquet's. The waitstaff were friendly and very accommodating and it was very quiet with only one other diner present.
