“Fabulous atmosphere and views”
Reviewed 8 December 2013

We visited Aqua twice during our stay in Vanuatu and it was lovely both times. The eye fillet was small but delicious however my husband's rump was quite tough. The menu we viewed from the bar was different (in the main course meats) to what we were handed when we sat down, so we had to start again with our selections. The staff are very friendly and the management is good. It wasn't our best meal in Vanuatu but you can't really beat that beautiful view of Erakor Lagoon.

“Great Location”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

Went to Erakor for a few cocktails and a meal. Food quite pricey for what you got. Was not too hungry so had entrees only. Filled a gap, but nothing spectacular. Lovely spot, table on deck by the water, watching the fish swim around the the cruise ship leaving out at sea. Service okay.

“The best Tahitian fish!”
Reviewed 24 November 2013

My husband had the best Tahitian fish salad here. It was fresh, tasty and just delicious. Also great lime juices.

“Dinner was terrible”
Reviewed 24 November 2013

My husband, myself and our grandaughter went for dinner, she couldn't eat her burger as it was very dry, our fishermans baskets were mainly chips, but desserts(we ordered 3 lemon meringue pie) took at least 20 mins to be told they only have 2 left. Okay.. 2 plus a chocolate dessert,another 10 mins 2 slices come out, 1 with no meringue, the other was small pieces all put together the look like a slice, no meringue, at 950 vt no way. Another 5 mins before I could tell them to take 1 back and I wasn't paying it, but I was told they couldn't take it off the bill as it was already on the computer..plus we are still waiting for the choc dessert, so they wanted me to have another dessert so I was brought something else out but still had to ask for the choc one as they had forgotten. 11,000 vt all up, not again for us.

“Good food at a great price in a beautiful location”
Reviewed 17 November 2013

Having arrived late to our accommodation at Warwick we decided to head straight over to Erakor for an early dinner around 5pm. As it was after 4:30pm we didn't have to pay for the ferry over and once we worked out to turn on the light to attract the boat it was a pleasant trip over and good to be covered from the light rain. On arrival I requested the "family dinner special" menu which the waitress didn't understand. Thankfully the man behind the bar did as I had been emailed the menus from Erakor before our arrival and knew it existed. This is a great special available 5:00-6:00 with enough choice to satisfy everyone. As our daughter is only 18 months she shared our meals rather than order from the kids specials but other families did and they looked quite nice. For adults we got garlic bread to share, I had a steak and my husband chicken curry, and we both had an icecream sundae for dessert. Great value for 2500Vatu per adult. Being pregnant I asked for my steak well done and was pleased that it came out that way without tasting like overcooked rubber. Chips weren't very nice but. Husband loved his curry served in a coconut shell. At this early hour we had our choice of tables and a bit of room for our daughter to roam around. We checked out the beach area and the playground while we waited for meals. Once mains were cleared I asked for our icecream asap as baby was getting very tired but we still waited 20 mins. Waitress apologised but it was a bit annoying to have to wait that long for something that is not even cooked and they were not busy. They were quick with the highchair but I have to say this was one of the few places in PV where the wait staff showed no interest in our daughter. Everywhere else they wanted to entertain her and carry her around. We intended to go back again for another dinner and to try out the picnic baskets for lunch on the beach but the torrential rain kept us trapped at the Warwick. For both price and quality I think Aqua is a better choice than the food options at the Warwick
