Five of us sat down for a meal this Saturday night. We are all locals and had eaten there before. I happily ordered the signature dish of Thai green curry, $22 with and extra $5 for prawns. When it arrived it looked very watery. In fact, the plate was swimming in watery, very runny liquid, with a handful of green... More

Firstly let me say that I think it speaks volumes that your friends supported us when you unreasonably stormed out of the restaurant on Saturday night and stayed on to enjoy themselves. I was hoping that you would not further embaress them or yourself by publicly drawing attention to your behaviour but here you are. Various curries have been on... More

This Restaurant has country kitchen style feel/atmosphere and a very pleasant place to dine either inside or outside on verandah. Value is very good, Menu range includes GF options and should suit most dining tastes. BYO and no corkage was a bonus. Staff were courteous and attentive. Service comfortably timed from order to serving. Food presentation and quality was excellent.... More

Open Wednesday to Saturday for lunch and dinner. Recommend... More

It wasn't very busy and there was a lovely fire. Atmosphere was great and unexpected in a holiday park. Service was friendly from the lovely waitress but the food was painfully slow. It seemed like they were bringing out all the entrees at other tables and then the mains and then we got our mains! We only had pizzas and... More

Thank you for taking the time to do a review. I'm sorry you were disappointed in the service. I have looked into the issues you raised and have taken steps to address them, particularly clearing empty tables before guests tables are cleared. That is not something we have ever condoned and I appreciate you giving me the information. We prepare... More

Recently had a family get together here for Mother's Day and we all thoroughly enjoyed it. The coffee was first rate, one of the best in Port Macquarie, the cakes were fresh and homemade and the staff were friendly and helpful. The restaurant is located in a great setting with both indoor and outdoor seating. All in all, we all... More

We had a wedding reception for 20 people in Dec 2015. Scott, David and the staff at the Village Café really looked after us well. The atmosphere was very relaxing and friendly. We often come with friends and family throughout the year and thoroughly recommend it.

This indoor/outdoor restaurant is a high standard BYO restaurant at the southern end of Port Macqarie. The menu includes beautifully cooked steak, rack of lamb, fish dishes, pasta and pizzas. Recommended.

Had lunch there with my daughter about a week ago when she came to visit, suffers from food allergies, the brilliant Chef prepared her a special dish that was delicious, so accommodating with a Smile. My lunch was filling and tasty, reasonable price, the waiter the best, professional and very nice. This isn't the first time we have been there... More
