Brilliant beach front cafe. Great selection of cabinet and menu food; fresh, local fish including scallops and oysters. The service is superb, very attentive and there's a good selection of beer and wine. Highly recommended - then go for a wander along the islands longest beach!

The servings are very generous here and they really know how to use a fryer (in a good way)! The setting is lovely, right next to a very beautiful beach. Servers are friendly and generally efficient.

Great relaxed location across the road from beautiful Onetangi beach, delicious bistro meals catering for young and old at reasonable prices, we've visited Charley Farley's over the years on a number of occasions and never disappointed!

We had a wonderful dinner at Charley Farley's. My husband had the fish of the day, which was kingfish, and cooked to perfection - he practically licked the plate. I had the fish & chips main, which was also wonderfully fresh, and came with a large serve of salad. Our son had the house made chicken bites and chips (with... More

We called into CF to pick up coffees and scones to sustain us during our walk along the beach. Great coffee CF. Service was efficient and friendly! Love what you do Charlie Farley!

I always enjoy brunch here, though some would say the breakfast menu is a bit limited, lunch has more options if you come a bit later.

Food average at best "pub grub" although menu sounds far more exotic - forgot our entree and mains took 5 min short of 1 hour - little disappointing and would probably give a miss next time as so much choice in the island

They handed our group of 11 with ease, the food was delicious and the atmosphere was lovely. It was always going to be a pleasant experience, being in Onetangi, but Charley Farley's certainly added to the experience. The service was great, the food very nice and the menu as expected. On the down side, this is also a tour bus... More
