Restaurant is located right by the ocean with awesome views. Staff were nice and friendly on arrival. Lots to choose from on the menu (food and drink). Our food was really tasty and plentiful, cocktails really nice as well. Hope to be back soon.

Francesca's Beach Club is a smart casual beautiful venue to spend the day and relax. Traditional Italian food with home made pasta and pizza as well as some Tapas and local delicacies like Vanuatu Tuluk and Simboro, using fresh, local produce as much as possible. The unique building is right on the water's edge at beautiful Havannah Harbour. Open for lunch and dinner five days a week (closed Monday and Tuesday), Francesca's offers stunning views at lunch and a romantic, candlelit ambience at night (beautiful sunsets). The building is a combination of modern minimalistic & island style construction, with a complex thatched roof that resembles a down facing traditional canoe and outrigger. Booking is recommended for dinner and on Sundays. Group Cooking Classes are available on booking and Degustation Lunches on Saturday must be booked by Thursday prior.
