During our stay at Le Lagon we dined here, due to the restaurant being quiet my wife was able to order the santo beef from the tepanyaki section and sit with me I ordered the whole baked fish both dishes fantastic , service great While dining the rain became heavy we watched the rain running down inside the wall also the glass doors funny. We then made a mistake we felt like desert ordered marble cheesecake at $15 Aus what a joke no taste , serving so small ridiculous, tasted like topping drizzled over the top , it really was not up to the restaurant standards.

We went here for dinner last night while staying at Warwick Le Lagon. The food was amazing with such generous portions.. It was the chef Vincelee's first night & he did a spectacular job! It was very tasty & a great show to watch. If only the resort itself had such high standards....
Would come back to Wild Ginger when we come back to Vanuatu..

Went here based on good TripAdvisor reviews, and we were surprised at how good the place was.

Great service, good selection of drinks on offer, great food menu. Excellent mix of Asian fusion dishes, with teppanyaki as an option if you wanted to do so.

We had the a la carte menu - grilled scallops, fresh tuna sushi rolls, lobster gnocchi, poulet fish red curry. All meals were excellent.

I was a bit anxious booking ahead because I couldn’t find a food menu online, but in the end was nothing to worry about.

Would recommend and would visit again
