The staff are great here and nothing is ever a problem. The food was delicious. The atmosphere was lovely and tropical. Entertainment was good too.

On a night out in Sydney or Los Angeles, you'd drop $35 for a main meal. At least that in an upmarket establishment. Do that at The Tu and your selection of food - pork belly, ribs, a burger....then more exquisite choices of crab and...Ni-Vanuatu cuisine. I had the red curry, my wife had the ribs and they were incredible. Lovely atmosphere, lovely staff - but just be a little patient people. This isn't Sydney or Los Angeles, this is Luganville in Vanuatu - you're on island time, with some wonderful island people; isn't that the reason you came? The cafe out front is open during the day for lunch and breakfast - its cheaper and still as good. EnjoyMore

I stayed a week on Santo, and dined at The Tu several times. The service was always good, and the food was great every time. Of course everything was priced in Vatu (hard to convert in your head at the end of a long day!),...but once home, I checked the bills, and found the actual cost was rather low. A great deal! I'll be back, and I'm recommending The Tu to my friends as well.More

The food here is fantastic! The tom yum soup (vegetarian) and ginger stir fry (also vegetarian) were delicious. The service is great as well - really friendly staff. There's a really nice range of cocktails as well, so definitely worth a visit at happy hour!

We ate at 'The Tu' on a couple of occasions. For dinner and lunch and we enjoyed a few beautiful cocktails. The customer service was great and the meals were good value and delicious. The Tu would be one of the best places to eat...in Santo.More

Thank you Belinda for taking the time to review us on Trip Advisor and glad you enjoyed the tea and coffee and that you mentioned the ambiance of our hotel as being in the middle of town, it could be challenging creating that lovely ambiance...More

The food in the Espiritu is good value for money and you are then able to use the pool and WiFi after purchase, however the staff are not attentive and often don’t see you have entered. On 3 occasions I took a seat at the...table for food and they didn’t provide a menus or ask if I would like to order. The food it’s self is very good when you get to order it, but the service needs improvement.More

This is really central in Luganville. I have been there several times for breakfast and lunch. Food is very good and service not so slow. In Luganville there is no much better than that. Of course don’t expect super cuisine but basic. Price are ok.More

We enjoyed a wonderful fresh Tusker on tap on a super hot afternoon. It was a welcomed break from the sun.
