Hi Daveis,

What you are after is the Tanna Rock Lobster. We enjoyed ours at La Verandah at Le Meridien.

Benjor is a bit out of town so check the local newspaper Vanuatu Daily Post or The Independent for specials on offer. There are other restaurants where you can buy lobster. Obviously it is a matter of having them in stock on the night so a few enquiries prior to booking would be wise. Other places you could try would be the Sebel - Crystal's restaurant - or Tilly's at Chantillys.

Hope this helps,

It does also depend on when you are going and if they are in season or not. We were there in September last year and I had all these dinning expectations which unfortunately was crushed as there were no crabs, lobsters etc. as it was no longer the right season. Had to resort to the local beef which was fabulous and available all year round!
