So many good reviews here so we decided to trek up the big hill for dinner. It’s a stunning location with a great vibe and even better views. The menu looks great. So was pretty disappointed when it came out. I had the mussel and...clam pasta. The mussels were so over cooked they were dried out and hollow, the pasta was undercooked and their was absolutely no flavour. My partner got the seafood platter which was small and had NO flavour. We wouldn’t normally be fussy eaters and eat most things but didn’t finish the meal as it tasted like cardboard. Maybe just a bad evening for them. But I wouldn’t recommend and wouldn’t go back.More

We stopped in for dinner one night and it was a fantastic experience. A rotating menu means there are not as wide a range of offerings as some places, but what was on offer was fresh, beautifully done and reasonably priced. The sunset was a...bonus and the staff were gorgeous.More

Visited on a quiet Sunday evening...sublime view...beautiful location and the food lived up to the location. I had perfectly cooked medium rare Santo beef steak. The knife went through it like butter...it was accompanied by a delicious red wine jus, beautifully cooked vegetables and yummy...roast kumala...can't wait to bring the family here....More

We tried this restaurant after reading the reviews. Absolutely slow service, food average and nothing special and the view probably is better before sunset. I will no go back for sure.

We called into Deco Stop based on a recommendation, food was delicious and beers cold. The view from the restaurant deck over Luganville and Aore island is the best we found, would be great on sunset.

Loved our stay at Deco Stop. Comfortable rooms, beautiful grounds with lovely service and helpful staff. Definitely the place to stay if you are diving. There is a specifically designed equipment area to wash and hang all your dive gear. Saves so much time if...your doing multiple dives. Equally a perfect location to stay if you want to relax and take it easy. The view is outstanding and the elevated location allows the breeze to disperse the sticky humidity. We found Deco Stop Lodge really accommodating through out the whole trip from our delicious welcoming drinks to taking our dinner orders before our night dive (so it would be ready and waiting just after we returned). We even were privileged with a late check out, which was so helpful as it meant we could squeeze in a trip over to Aore Island and see the cocoa plantation. Great suggestions and understanding of Santo and surrounds. Highly recommend staying here. I will be back again soon.More

Sitting out the back on the deck at sunset is one very good choice whilst in Luganville. Some nice nibbles provided whilst drinks are consumed and the sun sets over Aore Island. Did not eat here, but the reputation amongst the locals is that it...may not be the cheapest/biggest/best but it is quite fine. Note that it is quite an uphill walk from the town centre so a taxi is a good plan, if you stay late this is not an area where taxis frequent so you may have bit of a walk....but that is fine, downhill is good. In short, perfect place for rendezvous drinksMore

Varied menu with emphasis on local seafood. Daily specials plus a rotating set menu. Sea views over Aore island. We ate here three times and it was always good.

I had dinner there because I stayed at the hotel. Apparently it's a very famous restaurant not only because of the view. My dinner was quite good but it's a pricy place, when looking at how much food is down in the city of luganville.
