Little Paradise Restaurant
Cuisines: Contemporary
Description: A delightful local style restaurant that suits westerners - right on the beach of the world acclaimed Port Olry beach. Excellent casual dining in a semi-outdoor natangora roofed room. The cuisine is all locally sourced - lobster from the rocks only metres from the restaurant and acclaimed organic Santo Beef sourced locally. ALL food items are organic including their fabulous locally grown / milled coffee.

Please note this place is not actually called Little paradise restaurant. Its Port Olry Harbour restaurant. The family are very sweet. The service is slow and expensive but hey youre in the most beautiful place and hopefully they have sorted out the bacteria by now !!

“Stunning views”
Reviewed 10 December 2012

Port Olry is without doubt the most most beautiful beach in Santo. The water is turquoise blue and warm lapping onto a powdery white beach backed by palm trees. I have eaten at the restaurant a few times and found the hosts to be friendly and very helpful. The last time I eat there I had coconut crap which is no legal to catch again as the ban ended in 2012. The crab was perfectly cooked, delicious with a soft texture and wonderful flavour. It was served with a fresh and simple side salad and the owners kindly allowed us to drink our own chiiled wine. The menu is very simple but who cares when you are in one of the most idealic places in the world.

“Ni-Van Restaurant right on the beach!”
Reviewed 29 July 2012

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 moved on.
