The Village Cafe had very good service and the food was of good, though not exceptional, standard. I think the desserts are bought in from elsewhere and they were fairly basic. Overall, a nice place to go but not a standout.

Four of us had dinner here whole staying at Lighthouse Beach Caravan Park. A lovely, relaxed cafe with great food and friendly service. The steaks were tender, according to the husbands, and the creamy garlic prawns (daily special) were delicious. There was also a nice selection of desserts, with the apple pie and citrus tart being stand-outs.

We visited this restaurant on a Friday night on the recommendation of our accommodation owner. I had the Village prawns (specialty) and my husband had the Mahi fillet (specials board). We both enjoyed the food. The setting is also pleasant, and as we went around 8pm is was fairly quiet. The tables are quite large, though, and we were seated... More

Two people weren't impressed by their meal while the other three of us couldn't complain about the meal (or rave about it). The thing we all agreed on was that it was the noisiest restaurant we have ever been to. My advice to anyone contemplating a trip to the Village Cafe is that they should ask for a table outside...

Set beneath the trees at the lighthouse caravan park on Matthew flinders drive, this place is a hidden e gem, great staff, inexpensive meals and byo. It was great to sit in this restaurant and be able to talk to those at the table without The background noise, easy parking

The Village Cafe has a great warm atmosphere. We go there every Wednesday with friends, it's a place where you can casually dine with friends, hear each other speak or just have a quiet family dinner when you can't be bother cooking- it's perfect for our 5 year old, great healthy kids menu options. The food is sensational and love... More

Thanks for the great review Sisenanda! We love to make someone's special event even more special, but to have regular customers that enjoy the Village on a weekly basis is something we love to see as well (and little Liam is so cute, who wouldn't want to see him every week : ) ) More

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
