.....again it was disappointing. The decor is very tired (chipped tables, old chairs and stained ceilings) but apparently it will be renovated this year some time. The service was average, as we waited too long to be seated for lunch. I ordered rare steak with béarnaise on kumala mash but the thin steak was cooked medium (no excuse for this... More

A group of 16 visiting friends to attend a conference were wanting vegetarian food can be a challenge in a good restaurant. It was so good to see all happy with a great variety to choose from there as well as the view and air-conditioning that works. wonderful happy friends were all delighted by it.

Superb restaurant - world quality chef. We stayed at this Hotel and enjoyed several lunches and dinners at Crystals Restaurant and each meal did not disappoint.

I cannot speak highly enough of this restaurant. The staff are so accommodating and the food is of a very high standard. Eye fillet is the best I have tasted! Would definitely be back if I'm in Port Vila again!

We simply had to go back. Fine dining somewhat overpriced (typical of Vanuatu) but brilliant food. Just cannot go past the mini chicken rolls. For main the prawn and lobster tortellini is the best ever. More like a mini dim sim packed with seafood presented in a rich tomato and pea sauce. Absolutely Devine. Really efficient staff. Top class venue

As we were staying here, breakfast was always nice and thanks to Sylvia and Erima who always greeted us with a lovely smile and asked to get our coffee. Had dinner here too, a number of times, the roast was lovely, curry nice another night, cocktails by the pool, staff always friendly and nothing was too much trouble.
