“Really good breakfast”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

Had a great breakfast here but again as with other cages the service was too slow and drinks took forever even though it wasn't really busy. They had a power cut that morning which in fairness didn't help but they didn't give us the tap water either not great when its 30.0c outside and your thirsty.

Glad your breakie was really good, Yes there was a power cut and we were only one of a few open, no lights, no coffee machine, till no power but several customers really wanted us to do what we could. I am very proud of what my team pulled of that morning.

“Fine food in airlie”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

With efficient and friendly service Village Cafe Restaurant and Bar served up the meal I was looking for. With a relaxed and quiet environment (for the traveller or local that wants to escape the party precinct) they served up a beautiful slab of yellow fin tuna cooked to perfection ( by myself :)) on the hot rock plate. I know where to come next time I'm in Airlie Beach for business.

“Hot Rocks - Interesting concept”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

Really liked this place. Here's my comments on the food we cooked
Chicken - nice big chunks, great value
Fish - great selection and they actually replace the hot plate half way through (because the water comes off the fish and cools the plate right down)
Steak - I'd say the quantity of meat here was a bit poor

5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

We were on our honeymoon for 4 weeks and this was our best meal! We ordered steak on the hot plate and Wow-amazing steak and it was so fun to cook it to our liking!

Do not be put off by the signage-look quite cheap but this place is great!!
