Reviewed 26 July 2014 via mobile

This is Suppose to be the best restaurant in Port Villa. The service was terrible and the staff looked very unhappy.... Don't bother because its a waste of money...

How can you put such bad rating when other reviews of our restaurant speak quite eloquently of the quality of our food, service and our fantastic waitress's smiling ?!! Anyway, when you look at the two reviews you put for Vanuatu, you can understand... De plus vous revoir! Merci.

“Worth a visit”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

Very good food, large menu with a wide selection. Our 11 year old tried the bat which was delicious. The food was good and so was the service. It was expensive but most restaurants are in the Port Vila area. One of the best meals we had on our visit.

“Outstanding”
Reviewed 20 July 2014 via mobile

We ate at this fine French restaurant on two occasions in a recent 7 night stay in Vanuatu. On each occasion the food was simply amazing and was better than most French restaurants that we ate at in a 3 week trip to France last year. The snails in puff pastry are an absolute must . The organic eye fillet is melt in your mouth tender and the sauce Dianne is without doubt the best I have ever tasted. The hallmark of the chef/owner's expertise is the flavour that he manages to impart into his sauces- mind blowing really. The duck a la orange was the most flavourful that we have had in a long time.
The desserts do not disappoint and we tried the chocolate soufflé ,creme brûlée and tarte tartin - all of which wer exceptional.
The wine list has a great selection of French wines at reasonable prices by comparison to what you would pay in Australia.
The service deserves special mention- the staff are well trained and the maître 'd ensured that the whole operation ticked over like a well oiled machine.
All in all a must visit restaurant not to be missed.

“Superb Dining Experience”
Reviewed 19 July 2014

Very impressive from beginning to end, the food just divine, the service impeccable, the decor beautifully french. Our best meal in Port Vila, and we ate at all the best restaurants - Le Jardin des Saveurs was by fair the stand out, a must if you are in Port Vila, for the ultimate dining experience. And oh did I mention the most delicious desserts, no where in Port Vila even came close. We will definitely be back.

“Tres Bonne Cuisine...”
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.
