Little Paradise Restaurant

Restaurant details
Reviewed 30 May 2013

The food was fantastic. We tried the grilled lobster, the coconut crab and the santo beef. All of the dishes were delicious and very sophisticated for a local place. Definitely worth the drive up to Port Olry. The owners of the restaurant were very friendly.

Wow. We arrived into Port Olry late at night - our bungalow owner (Stanislas Franck from Nokome Colleens Bungalows) had made arrangements for us to have access to the beachside restaurant next door (run by his cousin or brother). The blackboard menu stated lobster or coconut crab. I wasn't happy to eat coconut crab after reading about their scareness etc. and being kiwis, were VERY happy to eat lobster! A WHOLE lobster for each of us - 11 yr old couldn't eat an entire one so lucky Dad getting the leftovers. Cooked perfectly and with a devine creamy dressing - beautifully presented with lots of flair - see photos. Waves lapping on the beach only a few metres away - eating by candlelight, it was the perfect way for us to get into Vanuatu time. Food is organic in Vanuatu, so you can't beat having things so fresh. The next day the restaurant was full of day trippers - it looked like they served about 30 lobsters that day.

At the time Peter was chef at the Restaurant, although we understood that he was opening his own restaurant in Luganville, so may have

Loved the position of the restaurant on the most beautiful beach with pure white sand and crystal clear water. The restaurant is operated by a local Ni-van family. There are basic bungalows where you can stay also in this small seaside village

We had the Santo Beef and Lobster, and the service was excellent, prices low for Santo, food fresh and tasty. Importantly the restaurant appeared very clean.

If you are visiting Port Orly, the restaurant is along a dirt track off the main road, with a small hand written sign, ask a local villager if you can't find it. We had the whole restaurant to ourselves when we visited but guess when tourists find out how beautiful Santo is, it will all change.

Highly recommend if you are up in Port Orly.

Situated on the magnificent beach at Pory Orly, this little restaurant could be easily missed as there is only a small sign. However find it as they have the most beautiful seafood and lovely people operating it.
