“Tres Bonne Cuisine...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 July 2014

When you walk into a restaurant and it is buzzing (in a good way) with locals you know you are in for a treat. Catherine and her staff did not disappoint. While she welcomes you at the front reception in true French fashion (they originally hail from Bordeaux), her husband Francis delights in the kitchen. Not for nothing did he have a stint cooking for a Middle Eastern King...
The produce was fresh and interestingly prepared. I would return...Thank you.

“Divine French fare”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 July 2014

We had the most delicious meal here. Elegant surroundings and extremely slick service. The wine, the chocolate soufle , the tender and delicious steak...sooooooo much to choose from. It was all beautifully presented and perfectly portioned. Not too expensive - just what you would expect for an exquisite meal. If we were staying longer I would have returned many times - just to try all of the tempting dishes ( and to practise our appalling French!) We highly recommend this restaurant to anyone - the family next to us were having a lovely time with three young children, so it is not just for romantics or wealthy tourists.

“Elegant restaurant, delicious food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2014

This restaurant was recommended to us and we decided to try it. So glad we did. Stunning decor, helpful professional staff and wonderful food.
Lovely little fresh baked rolls to start, asparagus as an entree, one us of had boeuf bourginon, the other chicken, both were absolutely divine. Next visit to Vanuatu we will be back. The only disappointment we didn't have enough room left for pudding.

“Not to be missed excellent food, a special treat!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2014

We were pleasantly surprised. Great food and service. Right from the start it was great. Treat yourself and go. The prices are equivalent to going to other restaurants but the food prepared by the french chef is a notch + above. Easily the best food and dining in Port Vila. Thanks.
