There was a group of 13 people for lunch which we had booked over a month ago as we were there for the World Masters Games. We were not given seating which had a view of the sea. Considering we had booked in advanced and were from out of town. The food came out very fast but I didn't enjoy... More

Stopped in here a couple of mornings for coffee and morning tea. A great, relaxed place right across from the beach (seating inside & out), delicious coffee and scones. Also has a good selection of cakes, but I didn't try any as I was trying to be good. Relaxed atmosphere with a good mix of locals and visitors, papers to... More

Worth dinning at Charley Farleys for the location - beautiful outlook over a stunning beach. Speed of service is impressive but rest of service was average. Standard of food was also nothing special.

Charley Farley's is a cheerful, relaxed bar serving bar food, speedily even when there is a bid crowd. Beer and food prices reasonable, Quality good.

Cool little bar/restaurant on Onetangi Beach. Friendly staff - food pretty good- interesting mix of people from the after school set to the tradie boys. Worth a stop in. Can't beat the location - it's pretty good on a rainy day so must be even better on a sunny one. Drink, burger and fries - $26.

We had a late dinner there and the kitchen was getting ready to close. They did make us what we wanted. Although I didn't see any hamburger's on the menu, this wasn't the only restaurant on the island that didn't have a burger. We ended up eating fish and chips. Only took one bite and I was finished. I don't... More

You can eat outside looking over the ocean. It is simple casual dining. We had the Risotto with prawns which was very good, very rich. We also had fish and chips, which was exactly what we expected. Order at counter.

If we were grading on view, C.F. gets a 5. The outdoor area with the wide view of Onetangi beach is a great place to enjoy a drink. We had burgers and chips, the kids had chicken bites. The chicken was a bit dry and a little too salty, the burger meat was a bit over processed but neither was... More
