We went to Reefers for lunch. Our waitress recommended the beef ribs which were tender, flavorsome and utterly delicious. It was one of the best meals that we have had in Vanuatu.

As the wife of the owner of a restaurant you rated 5 stars you need to be a little more careful. Sorry if what you stayed that the food and service wasn't up to your standard, but I'm sure if people read past your reviews...More

We met a couple at Iririki Resort and they recommended we visit Reefers. We are so happy we did, and wished we'd come earlier. I had a couple of the mojito's and they were great, much better than I'd had at other places around here....More

This is our second trip to Vanuatu and we always pay a visit to Reefers. We love the tacos, however, any meal we have ordered has been exceptional. The mojitos were lovely and not watery like some cocktails in Vanuatu. A great place - awesome...More

Highly recommend Reefers! Fantastic selection of drinks. We ordered the beef carpaccio as entree which was delicious. We then had the pork belly and Sicilian pasta for mains. These were both full of flavour. All interactions with staff were very good. There was a broad...More

"Island Spirit" review 2017 (Air Vanuatu's in-flight magazine) "Reefers Restaurant and Rum Bar is relatively new to Vanuatu, with three of Port Vila’s well-known hospitality identities pooling their talents in 2016 to bring the first and only Rum Bar with an emphasis on great meals to our shores. With a fast-growing reputation of being a “foodie” venue it serves lunch and dinner with casual meals from burgers, tacos and salads to a truly romantic dining experience with the likes of their huge seafood platter, succulent pork belly and famous signature dish of King Prawn and Squid Ink Gnocchi. Located on the water at the edge of town just past the end of the foreshore boardwalk, it’s an authentic tropical dining experience under the huge thatch roof with great ambiance and music to accompany the stunning ocean and sunset views over the bay. And with an ever-growing list of exotic rums from around the world at reasonable prices It’s certainly a must visit destination"
