Island Foodie – The Havannah


The HavannahUndoubtedly one of the most romantic resorts and restaurants in Vanuatu, multi-award winning ‘The Havannah’ can only capture your imagination with its charm. Blending perfectly with its surrounding, the huge cathedral ceiling presiding over the restaurant is one of the tallest in the country. Built the traditional way, using natangora and local woods, it is outstanding. But look beyond, and let your eyes wander past the expansive restaurant and the white sand beach into the turquoise ocean of spectacular Havannah Bay. Yes, it is that good. Of course, with such surroundings, the menu had to deliver, and indeed, it does.

Choices such as ‘Poached Prawns and Green Peas in Vanilla and Chilli White Wine Cream Sauce’ or ‘Roasted Duck, Braised Red Cabbage and Red Wine Duck Jus’ will delight those looking for something different. Those meat and fish lovers wanting to enjoy local produce, will appreciate ‘Efate’s Beef Fillet Tartare’ and ‘Fresh Grilled Fish Served with an Assortment of Accompaniments’. The menu is extensive with plenty of vegetarian options and there are also daily changing specials. Ph: +678 35600,
