The staff at this place is amazing. I walked in there a few times already well past mid night after dancing and partying and they were cheerful and happy to serve me a life saving bite. you know the scene a little wobbly and too happy but they seemed to enjoy their work even at that odd hour.

I stayed at the hotel where Emily's cafe is so spent a lot of time at the cafe. Food and drinks were reasonably priced and really good, probably the best value I had the whole time I was in Vila. There is excellent free internet and the staff are all great. Emily and Bob can't do enough to make sure... More

Terry I think that if you want to post false reviews you should at the very least get two things correct. Use the same type of Take Away container as is used at Emilys. Use the food that is available at Emilys. Emilys doesnt have noodles and rice on the menu. You are a fraud. Thanks for the opportunity to... More

Food was alright, fairly average quality but priced well and available 24/7 which is helpful. Not in the main city but next to the museum. The owner Bob was often about and friendly. Wouldn't be a great place in poor weather, I think they do have an indoor dining area but I always sat in the outdoor area.

The food there was too greasy and bland, it's pretty bad! What could be beautiful swings are actually locked up (?).

Emily's Cafe gives you a delicious home cooked meal, good portion size and for very reasonable prices. The staff are lovely and the range is good. Best of all, it's open 24/7!! It's a little bit off the main drag but anybody will be able to direct you here - just ask for the Sportsmen's Hotel or Emily's Cafe.
