After being recommended by friends we tried them out. Waiter did not have an idea on what beers and craft beers where on offer and menu also did not inform you. We were happy with food presented. When we got the bill, the waiter charged us for chilli, garlic and parmesan cheese on all pizza's when I only asked for... More

We have been regular customers to the Village Bistro for the last two years, and we have never been disappointed. The pizzas are well priced, overflowing with ingredients and very delicious. On Wednesdays they have live music as well, and in the rear section they have a kids play area. Their prices have always remained the same, and that is... More

After our last not so good experience we decided to try this restaurant again. We were pleasantly surprised. The restaurant was packed with people having a good time. The pizzas are excellent and we also had a baked Kingklip which was very good. The prices are also good and a glass of wine is priced very reasonably. I can also... More

This small Bistro has an amazing selection of foods ranging from Pizza to Lamb Shank to very good Spaghetti Bolognese. On Wednesday nights this small restaurant transforms with 2 vocalists.

We stumbled upon this place by "accident" about 5 years ago. We used to visit on a monthly basis. Since I had a child, it is no longer possible to visit often. BUT if you want a little italian on your doorstep...visit this place. It is out of this world - a golden tip for starters: Focacia Tri Colore; Mains... More

It is the real deal - the little bistro down the road that does not break the bank, very good food, excellent service and wonderful atmosphere. I had the melanzone, which is as good as it gets, my husband a pasta so big I had some helpings and still enough left for a good human bag.

What a wonderful experience! The Mango chicken is amazing as well as the pizza's. Didn't have time for dessert but it looked delicious as well. Great ambiance and extremely well priced. Our waiter Steven was excellent! He has a good knowledge of all the dishes and was really attentive. Would definitely visit again!

Really enjoyed the pizza! They are so cheap as well, compared to other places. Couldn't believe it. The lemon meringue is nice as well, portion so big 4 people can easily share it. Would recommend for family or friends outings! Definitely going again if we're in the mood for pizza. Oh and PS if you enjoy hot food, the atomic... More
