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...

This is our local coffee bar and pub rolled into one! Great venue and great atmosphere food is what you'd expect from such an establishment and if you want fine dining there are plenty of better places on the island. They've got it right with creating a good place to sit and chill and enjoy live music some nights (especially... More

This place is a not to be confused with a restaurant, it is a place for a snack or breakfast, nothing serious. I wanted to eat something not on the menu as an item, but with the ingredients on other menu items - bacon and tomato on toast. After a long wait to order at the counter, there was confusion...

We live on the Island and hadn't been to Charley's this season... so with some friends staying we went down for lunch. The prices are up, but the quality is down in our view. All our food was rather disappointing for the price. It's a shame, because it's such a fantastic location, the service is good, and the beer and... More
