A small selection of meals, some Australian. A bit basic, concrete floors and not many tables, but it is waterfront. Our meals were lovely and didn't take long to get our meals. Staff were friendly.

Great coconut crab and barrimundi dishes in April 2017. If you want to get your face and hands messy go for the crab! Very happy waiter!

Lost its old charm with the sand on the floor, but as you can see fantastic views from the back area. Hope you can swallow the cost of a corona at $11 AUD!

This is a place which used to feature a huge vaulted thatch roof. These days, it is pressed steel beams and timber. The low ceiling has a huge impact on the feel of the place, and it seems to echo. The day I visited, there...More

When I was at the Anchor Inn in March this year I do not recall there being TVs there. When you go there please say a big hello to George the Bar Manager for me.

A sensational location right on the harbour in Port Vila. It is where the locals and visitors meet for a cold Tusker , a glass of wine or a meal and a coffee, watch the sunset, and listen to live music. If that's not enough to wet your appetite then check out the live sport on 5 sports channels showing all the best in international sport. See you at The Anchor
