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

All the food that came out looked and smelt delicious. Was so good that we even went here twice in 5 days. The fish is great and reasonable price, fish... More

Eat twice here during our trip to Gibraltar. The menu was very varied and the portions were more than adequate. Tried 'Charlie's Bucket' which was a huge portion of varied fish and shellfish. Also tried the Indian food which was very tasty. Location is great - right on the marina with fabulous sunset views. Front of house lady welcomed us... More

Don't understand what the fuss is. Service is chaotic one had to repeat the order each time they brought the food or cutlery.

The food was excellent, fantastic selection. Service was excellent and reasonably priced. Beware this is a very popular restaurant not only with tourist but Gibraltarians also. Booking a table two nights in advance is a must if you like to eat at about 830-9pm.

We ate at Charlies Tavern on our first night in Gib and had read the reviews on here before we went which didn't deter us. As others have previously mentioned yes the staff can be a tad curt but the food makes up for it. We went early evening for a Friday eve which is their busiest night. We had... More

We ate here for our wedding anniversary this week during our holiday in Gibraltar - it was nothing short of gorgeous. The food was high quality, piping hot and generous portions . Staff very friendly and great swift service. We ate on the terrace and they even pulled up the shades at sunset for us to overlook the sun going... More

The menu has something to suit everyone.I have had a different meal each time I have been there,and not been disappointed.The service is average, but I can overlook this due to the taste and presentation of the food.Would certainly recommend this restaurant.
