Good service, great place to eat for American style breakfast at a reasonable cost. Close to bay with bay views if carpark behind is not full.

Jill's is a great place to eat for diner style American food. It's got a nice big dining area that is breezy and cool, with plenty of wait staff to look after you. The breakfast's are big and tasty, the burgers are a good effort at the American style and I highly recommend the 'Hold The Calories' it's a grilled... More

The first place we went when we arrived in port vila. Jills has lots of friendly staff and the Tanna coffee is super tasty ☺ we sat and looked out at the view of the water. Just lovely!

I got the Big Breakfast which was nice and tasty and good size. You can sit down at the bench seat and look out to the harbour

I had visted Jill's twice on my trip and for an American diner, I've eaten better. Don't get me wrong, the meals are generous and great value for money. The grilled chicken burger was better than Jill's cheeseburger. I just felt that burgers are just drowned in thousand island sauce and its just really greasy. The restaurant itself is clean... More

Having read the reviews we were keen to try Jill's. We ordered a burger, nachos and fries. The burger was drowning in bottled thousand island dressing (top and bottom). The over cooked chips tasted like greasy donuts. Worst of all were the nachos which had a weird, indescribable flavour. I'm sorry to say that I spat my first and only... More
