We had a rental car, staying in Port Vila and did a little drive around the island for this one. Truly worth the trip! the massive dining area with the amazing roof was a stunning place to eat with views out over the water. The staff were great and the meals were fantastic. Would recommend the dinner for sure, and... More

We were staying in Port Vila, but drove round the island to eat at Paradise Cove Restaurant as we had heard good reports. We were not disappointed. Sitting at an outside stable overlooking the sandy beach and blue waters of Havana Bay we had a lovely couple of hours enjoying good food. For starters I had the yellow fin tuna... More

Fantastic food. Sourced mainly locally with as a few as possible off Island ingredients. They have amazing specials ( especially the Veal Cutlets!!! thanks for the tip Marc) and the atmosphere is relaxed tropical. This is the kind of place where you can have a quality dinging experience but don't feel the need to be over dressed. It is about... More

The restaurant and resort were faultless. We had a superb family vacation to celebrate the New Year; we were treated as family as well as guests. Rooms were spacious and clean and we felt a thousand miles away from the bustle of Port Vila yet close enough to visit the capital. The staff were very welcoming and assisted us for... More

The roof over the main restaurant is just amazing in both height and complexity. The whole area was tastefully furnished with dining, bar and lounge areas. We had a nice table overlooking the garden and water which we enjoyed before sunset. My husband had the mahi-mahi and salad and I had the filet mignon and vegetables which was complemented by...

We were not patrons of the resort but stumble upon this place and had a breakfast. Great location, quiet, good views, the owner is well traveled and friendly. Strongly recommend this place. Take your snorkelling gear!

We wanted a day out a beach away from our resort to try something different and were recommended Paradise Cove and what a lovely place it was!! Although there is no direct access to the water via sand, it is good for diving and watching the day go by. The restaurant was very good and the staff were happy to... More
