Hidden Dining Experiences

Not all dining experiences are on the main road. Some are a little off the beaten track, but are well worth the journey. We've done the hard work for you, and uncovered some of these hidden culinary gems, so that next time you're here, you're well and truly 'in the know'.

The Moso

Tucked away among the rugged rainforest that engulfs Moso Island, the restaurant at The Moso is so secluded that to get there from Port Vila, you'll need to jump on a boat! Once you arrive, you'll be greeted by incredibly friendly staff, and a delightful spread of food, as you look out over Havannah Harbour and while away the hours. Be sure to book ahead so that the boat transfer can be pre-planned for your arrival.

Divi's

Tucked away on the Havannah Coast 20 minutes out of Port Vila, Divi's delivers a beautiful, tranquil sanctuary and operates completely off-grid. The cocktails and tapas on offer here at Divi's are the highlights of the menu, and the ocean frontage provides impeccable views for a memorable dining experience.

After lunch, jump into the water, with great snorkelling just offshore. If you'd prefer something more guided, neighbouring Back to Eden (mentioned below) has guided tours.

Paradise Cove

15 minutes out of Port Vila toward Pango Point, you'll come across a sign to Paradise Cove Resort. The road gets a little bumpy in parts, but you'll find yourself at a restaurant that is in a stunning setting under a natangora (thatched) roof, with views across the ocean (it's a brilliant outlook for sunset). The menu blends European and Melanesian influences to create a range of delightful dishes for all tastes.

Back to Eden

Back to Eden takes you back over the hill to the Havannah Coast, and is right near Divi's. The menu pulls from Bronnie's (the owner) extensive cooking skills, ensuring that you have a delightful meal. It's not only great for filling up after a morning of snorkelling, but also worth the journey in its own right.

Orovy Beach Restaurant and Bar

On northern Efate's Taleva Coast (about 35 minutes' drive from Port Vila, you'll come to gorgeous Orovy Beach Restaurant and Bar. With magnificent vistas and delicious food, it's a great spot to stop off and have a cold Tusker beer, or perhaps join one of their cooking classes to try your hand at cooking with local produce.

It's also a lovely spot for a swim. While here, be sure to go hunting for the nearby treehouse, from which you can see well into the distance toward neighbouring islands.
