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.

Lunch yesterday was fantastic. The steak and kidney pie was simply perfect and it's accompaniments of kumala mash and mushy peas just complemented the pie perfectly. I sampled my partner's osso bucco and it was melting tender and very tasty. Love the hospitality and the it's the best location in Vila.

We hadn't made a booking but were shown to a table on the wharf area. Our meal was very very good.beautifully cooked fish and mussels. The owner, a Kiwi, was ensuring everyone was happy and was very chatty.

Went here when in town after visiting the local markets. It is a very quaint restaurant on the harbour front so very pretty. However service was very slow (only 6 people in the restaurant) and the food pretty average. Could do with a bit more supervision and fresh oil for the chips.

I would like to thank the staff Sarah and Harrison and of course Dean the owner for a great experience. Anyone thinking of going... More

We called in for dinner one night but felt there wasn't a great selection on the menu and a little pricey for what was on offer so decided against staying. However we loved the atmosphere and location so decided to come back the following day and have lunch instead. The service wasn't great. We had to actually attract the waitress... More

We had dinner twice at Cafe du Village, both on Valentine's Day and then again on our last night in town. The restaurant is conveniently located a 2 min walk from the Iririki Jetty right next to the Casino. The food was fantastic, varied menu, great wines and very friendly and welcoming staff, both the wait staff and the owners... More
