Recommended to come here while we were staying at the Havannah ended up coming a few nights in a row. The first night we walked there, its about 40 minutes but quite pleasant. Whilst at wahoo we discovered if we had rung someone would have come and collected us - this is an amazing service not offered anywhere else I... More

Was recommended we visit Wahoo whilst staying at The Havannah and did so for dinner one evening and lunch on our last day in Vanuatu. Great menu selection and staff very friendly. Tuna sashimi was amazing as was the fresh crab we had for lunch. Brilliant for sunsets as well and fish spotting from their jetty. Being picked up and... More

Quantity and quality is not there. But the price is ! The worst pork racks I even eat, the smallest carpacio I even look in my life, but priced at 1800 vatus!!! The four frozen calamari rings at 1800 vatus where looking like a joke. There is two nice places to go for lunch just before and after this one.... More

We Stayed at the Havannah Eco Lodge which was just a walk along the beach to reach the great set up of the Wahoo Bar. Food was amazing and was a great place to relax and watch the sun set. Would definitely go back for a cold beer/food when we're back in Vanuatu.

Thank you for your very kind review. We are happy you enjoyed your stay at the Eco Lodge and that a highlight of your holiday was enjoying our 'amazing' food and cold beer during sunset . That is great news for us and we hope you'll be able to return again some day. More

We stayed in Havannah for 7 nights, I think we spent about 3 nights at Wahoo Bar. Great food (fish and chips are amazing), great wine and drinks list and great people. Thanks for the memories.

We are finding that people staying locally do come back time and time again. We are making some great new friends and the memories work both ways. Thankyou sincerely for this great feedback. More

The Wahu bar has been a institution for many years.But was getting a bit tired. The new owner has breathed new life into the place. Its a fantastic way to spend an afternoon eating,relaxing and enjoying a refreshing dip. We loved the food -particularly the grilled Poulet fish.

Yes the Wahoo Bar has always had a great location and laid back vibe, so when we took on the business we had a definite head start. Thank you for letting us know you appreciate our efforts. All our staff are trying really hard so I'll pass on your comments about our Poulet Fish to the Chef. My personal favourite... More

Stopped here for lunch and loved sitting out on the deck watching the view. Prices are reasonable by Vanuatu standards, even more so when you realise how generous the serving sizes are. The fresh fish and chips were excellent (we tried both the snappy and the mahi mahi and they were fantastic). Wished we could have stayed long enough to... More

So pleased you enjoyed our waterside deck and our view of beautiful Havannah Harbour. We think it is a nice change from Port Vila! Yes, the Snapper (Poulet) and Mahi Mahi were both caught in our local waters and there is nothing better then fresh fish. Hopefully you will get a chance to stay for a Havannah sunset another day....

Anyone visiting Vanuatu should make time to visit this wonderful Restaurant. Beautiful location, amazing sunset at night. Food to die for, Sashimi and Lobster best I have had anywhere. Owners Martin & Roanna, Manager George and staff make this experience one to remember. Can't wait to return.

We dined here for a very late lunch after circumnavigating the island. The wahoo (kingfish) is very good as are the substantial portion of pork ribs (husband and teenage son shared the full plate). Great spot right on the harbour to while away the hours. Be it lunch or dinner (the sunset is sensational on this side of Efate) be... More

You are right. The jetty beckons you into the water. We encourage people to be at the bar by 5.30pm if they want to see our incredible sunsets and we are open 7 days for lunch and dinner. Thank you for your encouragement! More

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.
