We had been living in London for a while and had been missing quality NZ cafe brekkie and coffee. The eggs bene was to die for - eggs poached to perfection. The coffee was also amazing!

We went on a hip on hop of experience on this fabulous island. It's quite a big island with plenty of stuff to see. Wineries, olive oil plantations, beaches, and lovely scenerys. Had lunch at this place, and I really didn't have any expectations at all. This was two days before Christmas and everyone is usually slightly tried at that... More

A good place to have a drink. Food is average & not worth paying the price. Nice place to relax w/friends for drinks.

Charlie Farley's is a great spot on a hot day, on a cold day I don't think it would be very good as there is limited seating inside. Food was OK, service was OK, I am sure they can improve both. I will give this place another shot one day. I had heard amazing things about this place but It... More

When I headed out to Onetangi Beach, I'd heard of Charley Farley's and for some reason envisioned a dark and dingy pub on a side street somewhere, but this was not at all the case! It's pretty light and airy, although it was quite crowded given the holiday rush of local and international vacationers. The staff were very pleasant, the... More

Yes Charley Farley has outdoor seating overlooking Onetangi beach that can be enjoyed in a summers day or night. But the food for the price is really mediocre and the drinking scene a bit intense. Service was slow and wait staff swamped. Recommend bring a picnic to the beach instead.

Good pub grub, and a good beer selection. It's the kind of place you head to after a day hiking or swimming, or when you can't face another night of winery food. Easy, comfortable, and good.

Had dinner there twice. Steak sandwich was so good I had it the second time and was just as good. Price was also very reasonable. Staff friendly and service was good. Location tops it off across the road from the best beach on Waiheke Island with views of Onetangi Beach.

On a busy NZ holiday for the New Year we found a busy beachside cafe and bar which gave excellent value for money. And, while eating, a shelter from the rain - how they fitted those of us from outside inside remains a mystery! A great place on a summer's day!

Great coffee and excellent service. Always a good place to go for a casual eat. Usually easy to get a seat, but gets busy at peak times. Ordering at the till works, but can be slow if patrons are not sure what to order, two people working the till would be better. Otherwise the perfect spot at Onetangi Beach!!
