Great place to have a drink and a meal. Reasonable prices. The harbour promenade has just been completed so the cafe is in a great location

Harbour side location. Large selection of meals and drinks at reasonable prices by PV comaprisons (i.e not cheap, but about as cheap as it gets in PV.) NOTE that menu prices are ex VAT and service charge. Food serving sizes and quality were both good....More

Had been looking forward to breakfast here . Many menu items unavailable. Especially juices. Coffee watery. Eggs ok. Go for the absolute waterfront location and watch the world go by.

This cafe is located right on the waterfront boardwalk in the middle of town. We had a great time watching a movie on the big screen overlooking the water, eating fish and chips on a Saturday night. Friendly, efficient service too.

We ate here on. wednesday night, which is moonlight cinema night. Not too many people, very relaxing, a good place to end a fun day out in Port Vila. Food was average, you get what you pay for, but atmosphere was good.

We only stopped in a couple of times. They do their own juices which are very nice. We had the "my little apple" juice both times and lived it.

Great Coffee while taking in the magnificent views across the harbour. The smoothies were also a hit. Always busy, can be a little slow with service but the Coffee was worth the wait.
