Hotels are having to do something better now because there are options out there, whereas before there were no options.

ating options in Port Moresby have, until recent years, tended to be limited. But all that is changing. A burgeoning middle class, an increase in expatriate workers and some entrepreneurial initiative is transforming local cuisine. One of the more progressive developments is the opening of Harbourside, which will host up to six restaurants in downtown Port Moresby. The development is by Pacific Palm Properties, and general manager Andrew Potter says it started out as a commercial development, but the strategy was altered. “At first it was only going to be one restaurant and some boutique retail outlets,” he says.

Cafe culture ... the Duffy cafe is already open at Harbourside, where another five restaurants are scheduled to open.
