Decided to try out the Village cafe for dinner as we had only been for lunch a few years back and it wasn't bad. I liked the idea of the Hot Rock cooking so ordered the fajitas. My two tortillas were cold and salad came out and looked wilted and the cheese was sweaty and melted together. It was incredibly... More

Hi Thank your for taking the time to write your review. The tortillas are cold as we store them in the cool room for freshness. Being a restaurant in North Queensland we do suffer from humidity, so salad next to the Hot Rock and Cheese will be affected by humidity if you select to eat on the outside deck. The... More

The service was very good but the food was pretty average. Maybe my expectations are too high but no one in Airlie beach can cook a decent steak.

This sneaky little hidden restaurant we stumbled across in Airlie has the best menu! Deep fried camembert, pork belly, ribs, trout and a delicious hot stone variety. We were looking for a nice romantic dinner and nearly kept walking because of the label cafe but dont let the title mislead you. This Village Cafe offers excellent service, a delicious menu... More
