I met a friend for coffee this afternoon and ended up nibbling on a starter portion of potato skins which turned out to be a very generous bowl with a delicious side of dipping sauce, a whole meal in my view! The waitress was very amiable and helpful. This place is a gem in the southern suburbs!

Visited the Village Bistro for lunch again in late Feb and now in March 2016; our fourth visit. Not once have they produced a dud meal and always a friendly face and a smile with service to go with it. Cannot recommend enough to those who have never visited. Will be back again for sure. Keep up the good work... More

What a lovely low pretentious place with superb food. This is like mothers home cooked meal. The veal with a light brandy based sauce was to die for, and the calamari starter was light fresh and crunchy.

We had Mother's Day lunch on 10th May and enjoyed a braised lamb, with beautiful vegetables, jus and a potatoe parfait (?). Desert to die for included a Malva pudding with ice cream and... More

Had lunch at this small but friendly venue this week; had not been there since earlier this year, however, still the same friendly service, with simple but excellent freshly made food to order. My favourite place for lambs liver and just as good as I had had during our last visit. Can heartily recommend this venue for honestly prepared good... More

Finished with a dessert each, looked like they came out of a book, and tasted as they looked, delicious. I would recommend this... More

We went for a birthday dinner and were not disappointed. Mussels to start, veal dish and a steak were ordered for mains with a great blue cheese sauce - all good and exactly what we ordered. Then came the chocolate mousse, I had to take a photo and have a taste (this dish is enough for 2), it was stunning.
