Located on Bonifacio High Street, Village Tavern‘s outdoor atmosphere and spacious interior allow for a refreshing dining experience that transcends into the food.
They have simple selection but good variety to hit every taste bud. My friends and I were invited to try some of the new dishes and right off the bat my favourites were the Grilled Prawn Avocado Salad, The Black Pizza, BBQ Pork Ribs, and Dulce de Leche Cheesecake.
The Grilled Prawn and Avocado Salad was excellent and so refreshing that it created an unforgettable impression. The BBQ Ribs were absolutely delicious–flavorful and very tender. Not the best I’ve had, but definitely competitive and won’t disappoint.
The Black Pizza (Squid Ink makes the color of the pizza dough black) was also good. This delicious pizza creation was loaded with mushrooms, bell peppers, bacon, onions, Gruyere, Mozzarella, Parmesan, and Monterey Jack cheeses. If have you happen to have a love affair with cheeses like I do, then this is perfect for you.
While Village Tavern’s entrees are good, the Dulce de Leche Cheesecake steals the show for me. This dessert was the perfect blend of sweetness that was comfortable to the palate yet cheese-y and creamy enough to satisfy any cheesecake connoisseur.
My one and only gripe would have to be Creamy Chorizo Pasta. Normally, the Chorizo provides a deep flavor with smokey undertones in any dish but I could hardly taste that flavour in the pasta.
Their bar menu is solid and actually fairly-priced. We tried their Red Wine Sangria and I loved it! It’s slightly sweet, very fruity, but still has that kick from the red wine. I haven’t had a good sangria in a long time and I’m glad to have found this place to get my Sangria fix.
As for the price, it’s what you’d expect from a nice place in BGC. I highly recommend that you stop by Village Tavern if you are ever in the area.
