Espiritu Santo is such a wonderful place. The perfect place to chill out. Luganville is a town much like any town in the South Pacific (maybe more hardware stores per square metre). Quite tidy and lots of shops selling everything. Chanced upon this restaurant as...More

It's not cheap but the local steak and lobster combo is amazing. A slab of local beef, cooked just the way you like it with a half lobster. The lobster tail meat has been extracted and reintroduced as a mornay.

We spent a week in Luganville and ate twice at 1606. Both times meals were the best we've had in Luganville. You will pay a little more than elsewhere but it is worth the extra in my opinion.
