Meat dishes were great - meat was well seasoned and tender. Dessert was very good. Chips were a bit of a let down. Nice location and friendly staff.

Spent a week in Gib and visited this fantastic restaurant 3 times, they were very accommodating for a friends wedding reception on one occasion, so good myself and my partner returned twice more. The wedding party was booked for 10 people on 7th Aug and we were seated in the outside terrace. The staff made a real effort to decorate... More

Went here whilst on holidays with husband and young sun. We walked in and it was completely empty and there was a look and a flummox because we hadn't booked - this made us laugh as nobody was in there but it did soon fill up so it made more sense. Staff were very friendly and attentive. Drinks deletion was... More

We were a party of 10 for a wedding & the staff could not have been more helpful. Our table was booked on the terrace as requested which was a wonderful setting as the sun went down over the marina. The steaks were ot the highest quality & the sauces delicous. If you visit Gibraltar you won't be disappointed if... More

Visited Charlie's Tavern on Friday 8th August for lunch as it was our last day in Gibraltar. Arrived around half twelve and was indicated to take a seat by one man, but then told that the restaurant side of the premises didn't open until one by a waitress., but that we could eat in the bar section next door as...

We visited Charlies bar for lunch. The standard of the food was excellent and the initial service for pre-lunch drinks was very good. However after ordering our food the wait was incredulous. Nothing too complicated we thought, 3 open sandwiches and a chicken caesar salad. After 25 minutes we asked the waitress if our food was almost ready, another 10... More

Really nice restaurant (although I prefer Biancas next door). The only negative I have to say is the majority of our table ordered the fish bucket. They could have told us that one bucket was enough to share between 2/3 people. For £14 the amount of gorgeous fish & shellfish they give you is amazing. Highly recommend... Just don't get... More

We visited the bar area of this restaurant as the restaurant itself was fully booked. Location is fab in Marina bay and atmosphere was good as it was a busy Friday night. Food was ok not as good as it used to be but still a nice place to go to

Our first evening in Gib, after a few drinks and a recommendation to try Charlies we duly complied. It was great, pretty empty, bit early I guess, but well worth going in. I had a bowl of pasta with carbonara sauce, it was huge, too big for me, but so tasty, very rich, very lovely. My wife had a similar... More

There's no beating it, the food in Charlie's is always really really nice. However, it is pretty pricey and they also include a service charge on top of that. The food has excellent taste and quality. If you come in a large group they expect you to pay a deposit (which is taken off the bill at the end) and... More
