We visited this restaurant on a Friday night on the recommendation of our accommodation owner. I had the Village prawns (specialty) and my husband had the Mahi fillet (specials board). We both enjoyed the food. The setting is also pleasant, and as we went around 8pm is was fairly quiet. The tables are quite large, though, and we were seated... More

We went with a large group also with our two children, everyone's food was fantastic and consistent even while the restaurant was full, great work guys... The staff were friendly and professional.

Two people weren't impressed by their meal while the other three of us couldn't complain about the meal (or rave about it). The thing we all agreed on was that it was the noisiest restaurant we have ever been to. My advice to anyone contemplating a trip to the Village Cafe is that they should ask for a table outside...

The Village Cafe has a great warm atmosphere. We go there every Wednesday with friends, it's a place where you can casually dine with friends, hear each other speak or just have a quiet family dinner when you can't be bother cooking- it's perfect for our 5 year old, great healthy kids menu options. The food is sensational and love... More

Thanks for the great review Sisenanda! We love to make someone's special event even more special, but to have regular customers that enjoy the Village on a weekly basis is something we love to see as well (and little Liam is so cute, who wouldn't want to see him every week : ) ) More

Five of us sat down for a meal this Saturday night. We are all locals and had eaten there before. I happily ordered the signature dish of Thai green curry, $22 with and extra $5 for prawns. When it arrived it looked very watery. In fact, the plate was swimming in watery, very runny liquid, with a handful of green... More

Firstly let me say that I think it speaks volumes that your friends supported us when you unreasonably stormed out of the restaurant on Saturday night and stayed on to enjoy themselves. I was hoping that you would not further embaress them or yourself by publicly drawing attention to your behaviour but here you are. Various curries have been on... More

Value is very good, Menu range includes GF options and should suit most dining tastes. BYO and no corkage was a bonus. Staff were courteous and attentive.

It wasn't very busy and there was a lovely fire. Atmosphere was great and unexpected in a holiday park. Service was friendly from the lovely waitress but the food was painfully slow. It seemed like they were bringing out all the entrees at other tables and then the mains and then we got our mains! We only had pizzas and... More

Thank you for taking the time to do a review. I'm sorry you were disappointed in the service. I have looked into the issues you raised and have taken steps to address them, particularly clearing empty tables before guests tables are cleared. That is not something we have ever condoned and I appreciate you giving me the information. We prepare... More

Recently had a family get together here for Mother's Day and we all thoroughly enjoyed it. The coffee was first rate, one of the best in Port Macquarie, the cakes were fresh and homemade and the staff were friendly and helpful.
