I emailed this restaurant while staying in port Vila.
They are closed for food. I was thankful to get a reply from the past owner letting me know before wasting money on a taxi.

Elan is a must visit on your visit to Port Vila. Food is not very cheap in Port Vila, but the food, views and airconditioning were really good for probably the cheapest price we had in Port Vila.

You will need to get a taxi to get there. Great restaurant. Book ahead and ask to sit on the verandah. Service was fantastic as was the food. Definitely the best restaurant in Port Vila

I found restaurants in Vanuatu overall to be pricey. Elan was actually a bit cheaper than the waterfront Grill in port villa for example AND it had a way better view and the food was better. I had a lovely fish dish cooked in a banana leaf and a lime cheesecake. Delicious. And you really can't beat the front table view with the sun setting. I would say it's worth it to escape the main strip and head over here!
