Right in town, at the Grand Hotel, more than ever, Crystals is rocking. With a new menu 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, Pork Tuluk and Seared Scallops, Homemade Prawn Ravioli or Baked Rack of Lamb? To say that their menu is impressive is an understatement. Try the weekly lunch specials for 1,500vt including lime juice. Super-popular with the expat community, every Wednesday 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 every night, the Cabana Pool Bar is the place to be with a full tapas menu and happy hour on every Friday from 5.30pm, with free canapés, 800vt mojitos and cool tunes by great DJ’s.
