This was an ok meal with only ok service we noticed a few issues with tables around us and we would only describe our meals as average compared to others we visited.

Catering for large groups can at times be difficult, however when there are limited numbers you would think the turn around time for food would be a little quicker, we witnessed customers come and go and be served meals well before our group even had...More

Description
"Island Spirit" review 2017 (Air Vanuatu's in-flight magazine) "Reefers Restaurant and Rum Bar is relatively new to Vanuatu, with three of Port Vila’s well-known hospitality identities pooling their talents in 2016 to bring the first and only Rum Bar with an emphasis on great meals to our shores. With a fast-growing reputation of being a “foodie” venue it serves lunch and dinner with casual meals from burgers, tacos and salads to a truly romantic dining experience with the likes of their huge seafood platter, succulent pork belly and famous signature dish of King Prawn and Squid Ink Gnocchi. Located on the water at the edge of town just past the end of the foreshore boardwalk, it’s an authentic tropical dining experience under the huge thatch roof with great ambiance and music to accompany the stunning ocean and sunset views over the bay. And with an ever-growing list of exotic rums from around the world at reasonable prices It’s certainly a must visit destination"
