A pretty place to have a drink and some food. Wifi there and a bibliotheca where you can buy old books for 400 Vt or 200 Vt when you exchange( bring one & get one). The original Dutch lady that runs the place inserted the Dutch secret of " gezelligheid". Good coffee, food and a nice place to cool down.

We stayed in port Vila for a period of 6 weeks and Jill's ended up being a firm favourite with us! The staff were always super friendly and attentive. We particularly enjoyed the lemonade which was really refreshing on a hot day. We only wish it didn't sell out so quickly! The food is definitely comfort food - big portions,... More

Jill's cafe is a favorite place to grab my breakfast or to have some nice lunch with my colleagues. The place is so friendly and there are so many yummy dishes. You can even call to order your food in advance to save time. We can choose to sit facing the ocean or to observe the city life. I love... More

On the recommendation of others, we ate lunch at Jill's cafe. It was ok but not worth making a special effort to visit. The daily special, hamburger and chips was good, not especially cheap , but value for money. The bathrooms were below average.
