The steak was fabulous and great service from Fraser. Good atmosphere. I was seated at a table where I didn't stick out like a sore thumb by being on my own - would definitely go back.

The receptionist from the hotel where I was staying recommended this restaurant. It was a great recommendation. I ordered the Steak (porthouse) & Fries for only 18AU$ and I didn't expect what I got. It was a good portion and it was delicious. My friend ordered the Parma Chicken and it was also very tasty. We shared the calamari as... More

We met with business acquaintances for dinner at the village. It's not directly on St Kilda rd you just need to walk around the corner. Great variety of craft beers on tap. Staff were helpful and friendly and the food was great. We had a mixture of entrees. Buffalo wings. Calamari and dips all were great. I had the Rump... More

The Village Bistro is a unique looking restaurant. Great outdoor area for groups of people to get together and have drinks. The service was unfortunately a "downer", did not feel welcomed and that we were an effort for staff. However, the meals were fantastic nothing short of a "yum yum". I ordered the chicken parma and I would rate this... More

Cant wait to come back in warmer weather - what a way to while away a day! Still, on a cooler night, the vibe indoors was cosy and warm. Great food, great beers, great service, couldnt fault a thing. Will be back.

Nice selection of beer. Nice lunch menu with a fantastic burger served. The outdoor seating is huge, lots of tables. You have to order inside but they bring the food outside if sitting out.

Very nice pub-style venue. Some dishes were very good, some quite average. Overall experience is good. The place seemed to be very popular among locals and thus might get pretty noisy in evenings.

Ate here twice with a visiting business group. Steak was a standout. Chicken Parmi, salmon and mushroom risotto were excellent meals too, consistent service and food quality both nights. Will be back.

Went for a Saturday girls night out and loved a few drinks at the village a month or so ago. The bar was pumping but the charming barman with the denim shirt made sure we were taken care of! He and the smooth bearded waiter were a barrel of laughs! Anyway, great selection of cocktails with an awesome vibe to... More

It is a nice place but unfortunately the staff is awfully unkind. They seems to be ALWAYS having a bed day. The food is ok, but inconsistent. It is lottery really, sometimes food is ok, sometimes it is not. And even worse... most often than not, your food takes forever to arrive and you have your lunch after everyone else... More
