The food was tasty and well prepared. Since we were there off-season, they were out of some items such as kale salad, and some nites no trout. Good service. Average prices.

The menu was small, but what they did have was delicious! The outdoor seating provided an excellent view of the mountains. Definitely a quiet little romantic place.

From Bryson City back to our vacation cabin in Nantahala we were searching for a place for dinner. We happened to pass by Nantahala Village Resort where Village Bistro is located and decided to give it a try. If I didn't live 3 hrs. away I'd be a regular. The craftsman styled dining room, complete with fireplace, has a great... More

This restaurant could have been great but the flavor of everything I ate was ruined with the salt. Way too heavy handed! It started with the oil and herbs for the bread-even that was loaded. Then I had salmon-perfectly cooked, mashed potatoes, and asparagus-all loaded with salt and I like salt. The view is lovely as we ate on the... More

We spent a lovely evening at the Village Bistro with North Carolina friends. The food was great, the view just gorgeous. The dining room is warm and rustic, but open, large, and architecturally lovely. I would go back. It was, however, a trip, a restaurant that is sort of a destination--the clientele has to know about it, or be advised... More

The food here was very good.

Our visit to this restaurant came as a referral from another restaurant manager in the area, believe it or not, who could not accommodate our group because they were full. What a great find this was! We had out-of-state guests and wanted to "show off" the area. We all loved it! the staff were very nice, congenial. Every dish was... More

Sandy and I stop here most Friday evenings on the way to our cabin in the area. Their pork loin, steaks, crab cakes, salads, and trout are superb, while several items such as their shrimp and grits and Greek chicken leave a bit to be desired. The service can be inconsistent but perhaps that is because Nantahala Village and the... More
