We ate breakfast here every day we were there and the food was very good and always served with a big welcoming smile. Dinner saw a good range of options to choose from. We had dinner on two occasions and enjoyed both meals. The cocktails of the day were a good precursor for dinner too!

Every meal we ate at the Sunset resort was nice and tasty and always served with a big smile. Plenty to choose from ranging from breakfast, lunch snacks throughout the day and beautiful evening meals, all with an amazing view.

We recently stayed at Sunset Bungalows and enjoyed our meals at the restaurant - the staff were wonderful and the food was great. Gilbert the chef also show us some of their own traditional foods and shared with us. Would recommend even if you were not staying in the resort well worth the trip if you are in Port Villa....

We ate at Bungalow:Ate everyday during our stay at Port Vila, mainly for breakfast with a few dinners too. The food was delicious, especially the coconut curries. We also had the sweet potatoes fries almost everyday because they were just so good! It is a beautiful setting on the lagoon, lit by candles and is very peaceful. The service is... More

We had lovely food here most evenings when we werent on a long trip. And my husband loved the fact that he could have baked beans with his breakfast.... More

We dined at the restaurant every evening during our stay at Sunset Bungalows Resort. The menu was very good and designed around local seasonal produce. We thoroughly enjoyed every meal we had and the service was excellent. The servings were very generous and the prices reasonable.

There was a very good menu with some nice specials. The chef went out of his way to change some meals so that they were gluten free for my wife who is a Ceoliac.

We had several delicious meals in the restaurant.A highlight was the crab special. A bit messy but well worth it. Service was excellent and the selection of food on the menu was great. The restaurant caters for special diets with a number of gluten-free options.

We went to many restaurants during our stay and Bungalow: Ate at Sunset Bungalows was hands down the best food we had. They have Vanuatus number 1 bartender so the cocktails are to die for!! The complimentary breakfast we got as part of our room was amazing as well - juice, coffee and meal everyday. The prices are definitely not... More

Enjoy our open air dining surrounded by stylish Melanesian decor and cool breezes from the lagoon. Whether it is a romantic night out, a special occasion or a group of friends, we can ensure you have a wonderful and fun night with fantastic dining. Suspended over the water's edge, Sunset Bungalows Bungalow:Ate Restaurant offers breath taking views of the lagoon and the tropical fish that linger around the deck. These fish are particularly plentiful in the evenings as they are drawn in by the atmospheric flood lights that wash over the surface of the water.
