Glad you enjoyed visit to Cafe Vila. I'm sorry to see the mix up with the wine. I'm not sure why they didn't reduce the price I would have insisted that they do if I was there. Apologies.

We stayed here and had quite a few meals - all good AND we can be a bit picky! Staff 11/10. Nice cocktail bar too.

We had breakfast once and it was comparable to Sydney prices ~15 for mains. Other mornings we had muesli and yoghurt which we bought from the local supermarket. Takeaway coffees are also good from Cafe Vila
