Handy to Muri, right on the lagoon, decent menu and has live music when we visited from 1pm Saturday. Well worth a stop for a bite to eat and for the view.

We popped in for something to eat, for lunch I had chicken parm, which was over cooked and a bit dry hubby had a mini Pizza which he enjoyed, the music was great, busy wee bar!

Easy enough to grab a table outside with a bar snack, but if you get a chance go inside and order the Fish Sandwich it's huge and you'd be best to order 1 between 2 people, so yum fresh and fast washed down with a...local beer it's a great value spot to chill, was windy that side so unfortunately the plastic sides were down, on a better day it would have been the perfect place to waste the afternoon, right on the beach - you need to visit!!More

Went here for lunch today, the meals were huge and really tasty. Views were outstanding especially on the balcony. Watched two doggies fishing for a couple of hours. We tried six cocktails and can highly recommend the Caramel Brittle, Halle Berry and the Milk and...Honey. The jugs of beer are $15 and also really nice. Staff are friendly. Recommend not to sit near the speakers. Cocktails are $16 and happy hour they are $13. Well worth the money!More

We visited Charlie’s twice for drinks. It gets packed so ensure you book a table for dinner otherwise it will be hard to find one! Drinks are great, service is very efficient. We didnt try the giant fish sandwich but saw this being served to...others and looked delicious!More

Location is great with a wide unbroken view of the lagoon. Food is probably the most affordable we saw but it didn't skimp on quality and taste. It's still a bar so don't expect fancy vegan gourmet, but it's not just some deep fried takeaway...place. The food had colour and flavour and we'd happily go again.More

Lots of places online suggested we had to go to Charlie's. We arrived just as they opened but the person on the door didn't even know if we needed a booking. Turns out they only take bookings for dinner so we were fine. We grabbed...a small table inside, because it seemed silly for 2 of us to take up a table outside which could have seated 8 people. We still had a nice view across the water. We already had an amazing fish sandwich at the Mooring Fish Café so we both opted for burgers. There were only a handful of people in the restaurant but it was the slowest service we experienced in our week in Rarotonga. Tables which ordered after us, received their food before us, including large platters of food. A waiter came over holding 2 burgers, gave us one and gave the other to another table, even though it was the same type of burger we ordered. It took another 10-15 minutes for the second burger to arrive. When the food arrived it was average at best. The chips tasted like they were cooked in old oil and neither burger was anything special. I know places are struggling for staff right now but I hate to think how slow the service is at dinner time if they book every table. Right now Charlie's is not living up to its reputation.More

if you like deep fried and processed food this is the place for you - very popular place but didn't suit our palate

Great location and popular spot. Very busy, staff rushed off their feet. Food more than acceptable, returned again next day but it was Sunday and was closed.
