Description: Oyster Island Resort Restaurant - 100% waterfront, set overlooking the tranquil waters of Peterson Bay, Oyster Island is elegant yet casual, serving only 100% Organic Fresh Island Grown and Market Fresh Produce, Sustainable locally caught seafood, and the famous Organic Santo Beef. Weather its a romantic 3 course wine matched special occasion, or a sand between your toes casual lunch, Oyster Island caters to all. Our Sunday BBQ Lunch Buffet is legendary - featuring local live music, and too many dishes to mention. Reservations essential. Drive north on the east coast road until you come to the sign, drive through the village to the 'landing'. Bang the tank to let our boat crew know you need a pick up, and sit back, enjoy the waterfront view, sip a cocktail and let the Oyster Island staff pamper you with the Ni-Vanuatu smiles and hospitality that this country is renown for.

We stayed here for 7 days and it was a bit of a chore to eat at the restaurant. Very average fish, burgers, curries, pizza etc. really disappointing selection of seafood. Buffet was super unimpressive - thin steak like beef jerky, dry fish and cheap salads. No prawns or oysters even?! Do not even attempt to get a nzd$14cocktail (although to be fair we didn't have a good one the whole 2 week trip)
Breakfast was totally non inspiring (toast, fruit salad and weetbix?!)
Tried also Deco stop (best) and Turtle Bay(better).
In general food we found was totally overpriced in Vanuatu. But disappointing as there is so much they could do in terms of organic salads and fresh seafood?!

The four of us had lunch after a kayak trip to the blue hole. The kayaks were in good condition and about $27 AU for a double. Friendly staff and cold beers were appreciated on our return.

The lunch was good and the vegetarian options were appreciated. Bang the drum to call for the ferry across to the island.

We only spent the day here. We were a group of 6, had a lovely lunch and drinks and then used the pool and did some awesome snorkeling. If you come here please bring your snorkeling gear there is some colorful fish under the jetty that you might want to check it out. Pool area is lovely , so relaxing to stay and relax and have some cocktails. You can get the boat from the city centre to get to Oyster Island,.,,,it takes 20 minutes and its free. Boat leave in the morning from the jetty on front of "The Espirity" Hotel

Great variety of food, which included a huge whole reef fish; Vanuatu beef, kebabs, a lot of other dishes and lovely salads, all in a very nice venue. Good value for money.

We had three nights at Oyster Island in August and it was very pleasant, however after 3 nights we were ready to move on. The resort is very pretty and picturesque, the fares lovely, private with beautiful water views,staff were nice.
There is limited things to do without going on a day trip somewhere as the island is very small with limited activities. We enjoyed ourselves and had a good wind down before moving on.
