“Disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

Fish and chips terrible. Makes a joke of the awards on wall outside entrance. Dessert not much better. On a positive note, the staff are friendly and the restaurant looked clean. Will not be back though.

“Best natural around”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

I've been going to Ardara for many years and the best plain food you can get is in Charlie Whites. Their smoked fish is to die for and the prices are very reasonable. Would highly recommend to all visitors.

“Best lunch of our holiday!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

Don't let the appearance of this little cafe fool you, the food here is amazing and I can see why it has repeatedly won The Bridgestone Best in Ireland Award. They do a great range, offer great value for money and really was probably the best lunch we had on our holiday in Donegal. I highly recommend you stop off here if you can.

“The best "fish n chips" for miles around....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

I eat there every time i'm in town. I have always enjoyed the food and licked the platter clean... Charlie himself is always there to say hello to everyone while His Wife Philomena runs around serving all the customers. very fast and very clean!
