Huge portions, friendly staff, and a killer view = excellent experience. Be patient, as the staff are definitely on island time, but you'll get your money's worth.

This is a very popular cafe, good service and a huge menu. Prices were very reasonable, I'd recommend the chicken sandwich that was huge and delicious. Right on the water's edge it has a fun atmosphere and even has dart boards for anyone to use....Great fun, recommend you get there early.More

Nice location, but they seem to be resting on their laurels a bit. Closed early one day, so we missed out, and then the next day, there were so many items on the menu that were missing and unavailable, that options were pretty limited. Staff...a bit indifferent.More

If you go to Charlies you have got to have the fish sandwich. It is something you'll never find again anywhere in the world! Make sure you don't try to eat it by yourself, it is large, tasty and very satisfying. Drinks are good, happy...hour is worth it' BUT, get there early as this establishment fills very fast. Beware crossing the road as (once again) people arrive en-masse! The views are stunning and well worth the effort to go there. Also, most evenings there is live music with an island mix to it, plus the food is pretty good and at a good price. Check before you venture around that side of the island as opening times vary. PS - sometimes fish is hard to come by so a chicken version of this sandwich looks just as goo!More

A frequent visitor in February 2020 it was on the 'must do' list this visit. Cheap and chirpy with a great 'local' vibe. Well situated away from Avarua and handy for us in Muri. Great range of well priced food and beverage all delivered in...a very friendly fashion. All in all a great spot which we look forward to relaxing over a cold beer and a bite during our next visit. Can truly recommendMore

A cool place to relax and have a drink. The food is average, but the staff are friendly and service is quick. Happy Hour Cocktails and a good place to look over the sea.

We’ve had some mixed food experiences during our week here but honestly Charlie’s was really good! Food surprisingly delicious and fresh. Had the fish tacos which were great and also the chicken salad which came with the most generous serving of perfectly chargrilled chicken ever....Top marks from this fussy foodie from NZ!More
