“Seriously good small restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2012

This is a small restaurant almost hidden away on a busy street in Rathmines. It was poring rain so we couldn't sit in the outside area which looked quite nice. In spite of the weather we were made to feel immediately welcome and comfortable by the two excellent waiters. We were having dinner and the selction of starters and mains was inventive (roast figs in parma ham,stuffed with gorgonzola, drizzled with thyme honey, followed by Fillet of cod wrapped in jamon de bayonne served on a warm beetroot,asparagus and peanut salad with a watercress and blue cheese sauce YUMM!), and yes they did taste as good as they sound. This is a little restaurant which is serious about it's cooking, has a small but interesting wine list and punches well above its size, highly recommended.

“Great Food, Great Value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2012

We went here for the first time a week ago. The Village Cafe is in a great location. The staff are very friendly and warm. The food was great and the price reasonable also. We will be returning and would recommend a meal here to anyone.

“Pleasant vibe, nice brunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2012

It's a nice cafe with quite good breakfast. It is very pleasant to eat something on the terrace in the (rare) warm sun in Dublin. It is basically offering basic food and I must admit I only had brunch here, but it seems to be a very nice, welcoming restaurant. Loads of 20-35 year old people here who reside in the neighborhood; recommended if you happen to be around and looking for a decently priced, good brunch over weekend.

“Great brunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 April 2012 via mobile

Good weekend brunch venue though can be ruined by yuppies who don't control their children
