Le Cafe du Village was, years ago " the place to go", but sadly over the last few years the place lost its passion. With a lick of paint lots of love and wonderful helpers and a brand new fully equiped kitchen we have brought her back to life. Come meet our wonderful staff, look over our interesting lunch and dinner menus as you sample from our expanding wine list. Come, Relax and Enjoy.

Good service and relaxed vibe.

We visited this place on a Sunday night when there was no cruise ships in town so it wasn't very full with people. The menu is really good, the staff and host were friendly and the place has a really relaxed vibe about it. The tables are set up overlooking the water. We had our 4 year old with us... read more

No other place in town compares to this exquisite eatery place. The atmosphere is great, staffs and host are most friendly. The food is delicious and value for money. Highly recommended to all. Nanumans (Melbourne)

poor service especially when cruise boats in town. I know they have to make a dollar but this sort of treatment for the money charged is not good news. coffee not great so look elsewhere if this is an issue. Some very nice pastries though but take the "take away " option rather than be bustled..

Had a lovely dinner outside at this restaurant, over looking the harbour. I ordered the chefs special "surf and turf" and it was absolutely sensational. The prices weren't cheap, but the food was lovely. I wasn't too keen on the cocktail I ordered - it was really fake tasting and super sweet, but they had a good selection of wines... More

A beautiful restaurant that has been restored with a lovely menu, killer view and great cocktails. We had lunch and dinner on two separate occasions and both experiences were great. The menu is fresh, contemporary and could compete in any international city. The desserts are worth saving some room for. The staff are relaxed and bring their beautiful waterside location... More

This is a great location - on the harbour next to the big Hotel opposite Irriki island. But the service was pretty slow, food very average - soggy chips, overcooked meat - beer not icy...... Think this could be amazing if under better management.

We had lunch here just before we had to leave for the airport. The manager made 100% sure that we were served well in time for us to make our pick up time. The food was really good. I had Muscle Chowder special which was was very tasty with loads of muscles. The setting is on the edge of the... More
