The roof over the main restaurant is just amazing in both height and complexity. The whole area was tastefully furnished with dining, bar and lounge areas. We had a nice table overlooking the garden and water which we enjoyed before sunset. My husband had the mahi-mahi and salad and I had the filet mignon and vegetables which was complemented by...

We were not patrons of the resort but stumble upon this place and had a breakfast. Great location, quiet, good views, the owner is well traveled and friendly. Strongly recommend this place. Take your snorkelling gear!

We wanted a day out a beach away from our resort to try something different and were recommended Paradise Cove and what a lovely place it was!! Although there is no direct access to the water via sand, it is good for diving and watching the day go by. The restaurant was very good and the staff were happy to... More

The Trip Advisor rating was spot on! We chose to stay at Paradise Cove resort partly because the restaurant rated so highly - and we were not disappointed! Travelling on a honeymoon with a small child, staying at a resort with both superb restaurant AND babysitting meant we had many stress-free and some quite lovely, romantic dinners - without having...

We loved the melanesian dishes so much, we went back twice to re-order on later nights. That good! The staff were very attentive in providing any recommendations and were super friendly and professional. The restaurant has two choices of where to eat, up in the open atrium bar area (with a wide view of the water), or down in an... More

We are locals and have been to the restaurant many times over the years. The setting is perfect especially when the cruise ships pass by after spending a day in Vila. During the day you can swim and snorkel. The atmosphere is great, the servers are friendly and mostly local, but the food is quite average. That being said, for... More
