Description: Tilly's restaurant is the main restaurant of Chantilly's on the Bay hotel. It is inside the hotel building - situated out front on the water. With a diverse menu - that fits with the hotels tag line - Port Vila's best little international hotel. We like to think of Tilly's as the best place in town, with great, views, great service, great food and a great wine list. Do try us out.

Reviewed 8 June 2014

A very austere setting, but very good service, with knowledgeable waitresses, who were very friendly as well.

Food was good, as was the wine list.

We went on a 40 min drive to this restaurant, 20mins of it on dirt rd but boy was it worth it. Such a picturesque place and the food was superb lovely place to spend our annivery lunch. Staff very friendly and even let us have a look on one of the boutique cottages. Oh my so lovely. Highly recommend it's worth the drive out.

8 of us shared a fabulous and fantastic Birthday lunch at TILLYS where they went to maximum effort to put together a beautifully presented table all decorated in the Birthday theme-over and above all expectations!
The staff were very helpful and efficient and service was top!
We had a variety of meals and again we were extremely happy with all the food and service at TILLYS and then to make it a very special occasion birthday treats (cake) were bought out complimentary at the end of the meal and the staff all sang to us with big smiles-FANTASTIC OCCASION AND we highly recommend TILLYS in Port Vila,Vanuatu

“Great spot, average food.”
Reviewed 4 June 2014 via mobile

Great location, looks like a fancy place to eat. Travelled with a large group of family and friends (13). This was our first night in Mele Bay, it was about 8pm and we were starving. Food prices were reasonably high so we hoped for an amazing meal and to get it reasonably fast at that hour.
We ordered our mains, and some ordered entrees. The entrees arrived about 9.15pm and the mains another 45 minutes later... My food was terrible, I ordered chicken breast on mashed kumara - that was it, no salad or veges. The chicken was incredibly dry and bland as was the Kumara. The rest of the group, some enjoyed their meals and others agreed with me..
However, the staff were lovely.

“Nice views and fine-dining atmosphere. Food OK”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

Lovely position on the water with outside seating available. Not too far from the town centre. We saw guests dining out on the end of a pier so consider that when booking.
Mains - pork belly - very herby and dry. Not thoroughly impressed.
- Steak (rare). Steak was presented rare as asked however was cold (refrigerator cold) in the centre. Needed to go back to the chef for heating. Nice onion rings. Fries tasted a lot like McDonalds fries however were not unappealing.

Although the restaurant looked great this was our least favourite food in Port Vila.
