Great Places To Eat – Crystals at the Grand


Right in town, at the Grand Hotel, more than ever, Crystals is rocking. With delicious weekly specials and the options of very stylish dining inside in full air con comfort, dining on the veranda with elevated views of Port Vila Harbour, or by the pool at the groovy Cabana Pool Bar, Crystals is taking Port Vila’s dining scene a notch higher. On the menu, choices such as The Grand Fully Loaded Burger, Gourmet Sandwiches, or Lamb Masala for lunch are but a few of mouth-watering options. For dinner, how about Smoked Salmon and Tuna Tartare, Lobster & Prawn Tortellini, or Baked Rack of Lamb? To say that their menu is impressive is an understatement. Try the weekly lunch specials for 1,500vt or the Café Gourmand, petites temptations and coffee, all day every day. Super-popular with the expat community, every Saturday is Middle Eastern dinner featuring Mixed Mezze, Beef Kefta, Veal Tajine and more for 2,500vt. Friday night is curry night with a choice of four curries (try one or try all) for 2,000vt. And on Sunday night, enjoy a good hearty roast dinner and dessert for 2,800vt. Yep, it’s all happening at the Grand.

The ‘Cool’ factor: Sunset cocktails at the Cabana Pool Bar before awesome dining in the veranda.

Signature dish: Taste of Vanuatu – Grilled organic beef filet, fresh prawns, pork tuluk, served with kumala mash fresh and market greens.

Great for: Dining in style with amazing views of the bay.

So very special: The menu.
