We arrived after the kitchen closed and they were kind enough to cook us a meal. Great coffee, good food and in an incredible location.

We left winter behind in the US and enjoyed an outdoor lunch upon arriving in NZ! Great place to bring a family. Love dining outside in the sun. Good food. You have to go inside and order at the counter; can bypass the main line to order from the bar (including espresso drinks). Service was not a problem, but if... More

Great beach front restaurant, cold beer, yummy salads, burgers, fries etc. Grab a table, head up to the counter and place your order. They give you a number that you place on your table and 5 to 10 minutes later fresh home cooked food appears delivered by delightful wait staff. Good beer selection, cold glasses. Really a nice place.

We went there for lunch only. The rolls we had were nice but the vegetarian ones were not hugely exciting. Clean and well run restaurant. Obviously very popular.

This rates as one of the best places for family dining that we came across during our recent stay on Waiheke. The food and atmosphere were all great and we were able to relax and not stress about the children who loved their food too. Highly recommended.

I ordered a buttermilk chicken burger and it appeared at the table incredibly quickly, accompanied with half a plate of hot chips. Was okay but would order something else if I end up there again.

Went to Charlie's for a light dinner after having a late vineyard lunch. The staff were helpful in explaining the meals and the entrees we had - scallops and the beetroot and feta salad were excellent.

With limited spaces for breakfast on Waiheke we just walked in & got a table, was told to order at the bar by a very friendly & helpful British man & had a great meal! I definitely recommend their rhubarb compote or eggs bene or big breakfast as everything was lovely. A large coffee will set you back $5 &... More

We went to Charlie Farley's for breakfast. We had scones and coffee. Sitting out on the deck where we had a view of the water. The service was good.

The place was full both long w/e's (which you would expect), we went for a brunch with a group of 6. I had the scrambled eggs which were luke warm by the time I got them and the other 5 went for the big breakfast. They all found it a little disappointing. Coffees took a long time to come, but...
