We were in-house guests, but as we hired a rental car, we didn’t eat at the resort much. To my eye the menu was slightly pricy (mains 2450V - 3650V; a poke bowl for lunch is 2450 or lunch of fish and chips is 2500).

I did enjoy wahoo on cous cous littered with dried fruit and nuts. The kumala gnocchi was very well handled with a delicate pan-fry and a compelling creamy coconut, walnut and herb sauce.

We also tried the baked poulet in banana leaf which was nice against the coconut and lemongrass sauce but for my taste the fish was overcooked and lacked interest. We had the same dish at Tamanu on the Beach and they managed to get a smokier finish and included some fat (maybe chicken skin) in the parcel that really improved flavour against more delicately cooked fish.

The restaurant’s aspect is beautiful. Service is warm and friendly, and much quicker than their resort neighbour. Guests are offered beach seating, but at the first sprinkling of rain staff offer to move you under shelter with good humour whatever you reply.

We arrived for a pre booked lunch. The staff were incredibly accommodating. They picked up our table and moved it onto the beach under a tree.
The food was amazing and they make the best Mojito my girlfriend has ever tasted.
Well worth the drive out there.

Spent 4 nights in one of their newly built villas. Extremely comfortable with smart fittings.Spa pool facing the beach. Great outdoor warm shower which was so handy if you want to swim throughout the day. Gives a real feel of island life. Good snorkelling right in front of the main hotel beach area. No need to catch a boat to see the coloured tropical fish. Food excellent. Staff were just lovely. Nothing was too much trouble. A happy very well run resort with a tranquil feel about it. Would definitely return.

We made the easy journey to Eratap by taxi for the most divine dinner with a pretty table set up on the beach for our family. The sunset views are unmatched anywhere else in Port Vila and the food is easily 5-star standard. Superb food, views, setting and service - this was a standout and favourite meal for our family. We'd go back in a heartbeat!

After scouring the holiday information on dining in Vanuatu is seemed apparent that Eratrap was a not to be missed experience. Accordingly, we left this meal until our last night prior to departure. We made our way out from Port Vila along the pot holed main road which then diverted into a gravel road. At the end of the journey, Eratrap emerged and we quickly made our way to the beach where there was the beginning of the most magnificent of sunsets. Photos on the beach, then followed by superb service and an incredible menu from which to select. Fine wine, lobster tortellini, organic beef, tuna, succulent chicken dotted the menu. So much selection and every meal we ordered was exceptional. Deserts were equally as impressive and followed by Tanna coffee the night was complete. Clearly Eratrap is an extra special destination and one not to be missed for those who enjoy fine dining in the most beautiful of beach locations.
