“Unique!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012

It's pretty cool if you choose something off the hot rock menu, to have volcanic rock cooking your meat right in front of you. Neat idea! Service a little slow but they only had one waitress for the entire restaurant.

“Airlie Coves first Xmas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

We chose to have our first Xmas Party at The village, and we are very happy we did. The food and service were second to none. And at the end of the night, when we had taken a little too long to leave, there was no impatient staff ushering us out, they were very patient and accommodating. kayla was awesome, and so were the rest of the staff... but we made Kayla be our Secret Santa... and she did a great job... thanks Santa... We will be back... Thanks Lawrence and Shirly for looking after us..... Give your staff a big pat on the back as they are awesome...
