Whenever we visit Port Vila, we eat once or twice at the Harbour View. We like trying other eating places too - but we have to keep returning to the HV for the excellent food (plus good service, reasonable prices, and good drinks list).

This was recommended to us by taxi drivers and hotel staff alike - and it did not disappoint!! We sat on the balcony, overlooking the harbour and the food was really great. Thanks for a lovely night.

Welcoming old school Chinese restaurant serving classic dishes. Very friendly and efficient service. Soups in particular were excellent. If you're craving classic Chinese food this is the place.

Took the family here while on holidays, was amazed we were in the south pacific and had the best Chinese food we have had in a very long time. Every one chose their own plate and we shared (5 of us). Not a single plate could be classed as bad or average. The view is fantastic. The staff are excellent.... More

While we were in Vanuatu we began to really crave Chinese food - fortunately for us, Harbour view restaurant offered exactly what we were looking for. The menu itself is quite extensive and affordable, and the food tasted authentic.
