We chose this for our last night in Villa. The service was great, food delicious and we were serenaded by a local band. The pork belly with tempura prawns was very tasty , followed by Gnocchi with lobster which was also an interesting combination.

Fantastic food! Expensive but well worth it! My favorite was the lobster gyozas! A must! We went there a couple of times. The food is fancy but the atmosphere is ambient and relaxing. Dont finish your wine? Take it with you outside and watch the band.

Entertaining night at the teppanyaki grill. Very happy chef showing his juggling skills, not quite the same as you might expect but a good fun night out with food that won't offend. Friendly staff and good service.

We decided to try Wild Ginger on one of the last nights we were in Port Vila, having heard a few good things about it. Our experience was mixed.

We didn't book but getting a spot was no problem as there were only a few others there. Even so, bar service was very slow.

Our entrees were fine: tasty, well presented and just enough to whet the appetite for the main meal.

My main (Wild Ginger steak) was very good. A thick piece of meat cooked medium rare as asked for and the sauce that went with it was very tasty. My wife's meal (Wasabi steak) was not as pleasing. The steak was cut very thin and whereas she asked for medium rare as well, by the time it was on the table in front of us it had too much resting time and had become well done and was getting lukewarm. Disappointing dish.

Expected far more.
