My partner and I visited Village Cafe on the australia day long weekend. I understand they probably had less staff on this day but we waited over an hour for our food when there was probably only 3 other tables there at the time. The food was quite delicious (we had a range of tapas) but was ridiculously hungry by... More

They are all great!!! And the boss and his wife are very friendly to us! They taught us how to cut it and what is the best... More

A lovely restaurant with lovely food. Tasmanian grass-fed eye fillet with reasonable price, which is my my favourite, best steak ever and their food and service are always consistent, Brilliant!!

Overpriced sub-standard food. Bad coffee and rude staff. I would like to mention however, that the staff member I dealt with was actually management (Shirley, I believe) and that the waitress was polite. Will not be visiting again.

I've been here a few times and each time I received great service and awesome food. The cafe has a great chilled out atmosphere, and is super cosy in the undercover area. Definitely a must visit for anyone whilst in Aurlie Beach!!

Visited for lunch one Sunday a few weeks ago. Was very surprised to find out that there is no table service at lunch and at those prices there should be. The lovely young waitress overheard me stating this to my husband and served us at the table. Although a nice meal I felt it was overpriced for what we received,... More

Hi Scotaus, Glad to hear that our waitress has taken her initiative to look after you and your husband at the table despite we do not normally have table service during day time due to the high volume of traffic. With regard to your comments on the steak size, we do advertise the size & cut of our steaks on... More
