We ate here 2 nights in a row because our kids could not get enough of the beef lasagne! We thoroughly enjoyed our meals, super fresh and tasty. My husband had the coriander chicken and the special burgerlicious and loved both. I tried the Vietnamese chicken salad and the Thai pork salad and both were awesome; maybe the Thai one a little bit more. Our kids had double servings of the lasagne on both nights. Lovely dining by the water. The service is friendly. Highly recommended.

The 3 kids and I had a relaxed dinner at Moorings last night. Diverse menu from Chilli and Coriander Chicken to fresh beef lasagna. From all accounts food was delicious. Spring rolls and Vietnamese chicken salad stand outs. Kid's loved the Picanini Melody milkshakes and my Pina Colada was excellent.

Went to the moorings on the last day of our stay. Very friendly staff but I have to admit of being unsure at first! Compared to the other places we visited, the prices here were really reasonable! I thought that there must be something wrong or missing? While I asked for bottled Tusker (as all the draught beer I'd had during the holiday was less than poor) I was served a tap beer, but it was really good! We ordered from the tapas menu for entrées and steaks for mains. One of the best meals in port vila!

A great and underrated spot to have a meal within Port Vila. Located a short trip from the centre of town, easily accessible with a bus, this is a great place to eat when in Port Vila. There is a large variety of dishes on the menu and they cater fantastically for a gluten free diet. If you're coming here be sure to pick up a Hotspot voucher book (available from several retailers including Goodies corner) and you can get 15% off your meals (at the time we went anyway), a great bargain.
Overall, a great place to eat with excellent food, gigantic portions (the Pad Thai was massive) and a fantastic view.
