We went to Reefers for lunch. Our waitress recommended the beef ribs which were tender, flavorsome and utterly delicious. It was one of the best meals that we have had in Vanuatu.

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"
