Excellent food at reasonable rates. The local beef is superb and cooked precisely to your taste. The local fish is also great but not always available. Daily specials are also available and often it is lobster.

We were staying at Nasama, and at the end of most days it was easier to just come up to Cafe Vila for cocktails and dinner than to go out (that's what lazy holidays are for).
Food is very good - fresh lobster amazing value, poulet fish, mahi mahi were our dinner highlights. In the cocktail dept, the Lava Flow with fresh wild raspberries was my favourite, but they also make a good Margarita.
Only has breakfast twice there, but again delicious fresh eggs with local spinach and other vegetables in omlettes.
Burgers and fish and chips for lunch our faves.
Lovely friendly staff make Cafe Vila a great place to enjoy a meal.

We took a cab from our hotel up to Cafe Vila on a very wet evening and I’m glad the driver knew where he was going as I could barely see out of the windscreen! But it was worth the trip.

The setting, adjacent to the Nasama Resort is very nice, great furniture and an open, tropical layout. The service too was very good, professional but relaxed and we were made to feel very welcome.

The menu was extensive and very interesting and our food was very good. There are many venues in Port Vila who could learn a great deal by visiting and observing.

Well worth a visit, even during a tropical downpour!
