Here, at La Tentation Restaurant, we pride ourselves on our strong focus on local Vanuatu produce. Our networks with the local Ni-Vanuatu Farmers and Fishermen ensure that we bring the freshest possible fruits, vegetables, beef, chicken, fish and lobster to the tables of our dining guests every day of the year.
As farming is seasonal in Vanuatu, many ingredients are not available year round. This makes it impossible to have some items on our permanent menu but our specials board fills this gap perfectly!
Every day there will be new specials based on the availability of fresh produce. Some items that appear on a seasonal basis are:
- Lobster – choose mornay, garlic butter or simply grilled with lemon juice
- Fresh fish such as Yellowfin Tuna, Mahi Mahi & Wahoo
- River or Freshwater Prawns (similar to Yabbies)
- Popinet (more commonly known as Moreton Bay Bugs or Slipper Lobster)
- Our famous Seafood Platters will be on the board whenever lobster is available!
Continuing our focus on local products, we stock the full range on Tusker branded beers from the Vanuatu Brewery. Tusker is a unique beer, tailor made for the South Pacific, with a light body and fullness of flavour. For a perfect refreshment on a steamy South Pacific day, you should say; “Mi wantem Tusker”.
While we stock many well known wines and beers, we also pride ourselves on having innovative Cocktail and Martini Menus. You can check out our Cocktail and Martini Menus. If you suggest a Cocktail or Martini that we like we’ll name it after you and put it on our specials board!
Would you like to eat your way around the world without having to leave Port Vila?
Throughout the year we will also be introducing some limited time menus focusing on cuisines from other countries as we celebrate Festivals of the World.
Looking forward to tasting Greek, German, Italian, Croatian or Spanish foods? These and many more will be added to our standard menu for a limited time only, so keep an eye out for notices for the current country of the month which will include the menu.
If you’re looking for a snack or just something to tide you over until dinner, we are open throughout the afternoon and offer a selection of light meals and cakes or how about trying one of our handmade chocolates.
We look forward to seeing you at La Tentation soon!
