“Beautiful restaurant & food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2013

We had a great meal at Charley Noble. The food was beautifully presented, and tasted as good as it looked. There were several delicious vegetarian options, and my husband loved his fish. The location is fantastic, close to the harbor, and the servers were all very knowledgeable about the various menu items. The design and atmosphere were very modern and comfortable.

“Great New Addition”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2013

to Wellington's dining scene. Remarkably well priced for the quality, including a well conceived wine list which was possibly slightly below what I was expecting. Assured yet friendly service and absolutely excellent food. I had the lamb which was beautifully caramelised on the outside and tender on the inside. The roast vegetables were a hit, and our group all enjoyed our meals. Will definitely be back, and I hear that there's plenty of folks who want to dine here, so reservations are recommended.

“Lovely meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2013

A restaurant with a modern and european style, with a sophisticated and innovative menu...You're bound to find something you've never eaten before given the attention to detail in terms of presentation and flavour that you'd probably expect from fine dining, but in a more relaxed setting with bistro prices.

We're vegetarian and were pleased to find several dishes to choose from and with the food made right there in front of you. You can have the main course in small or large sizes, so plan ahead and leave room for a number of courses.

Highly recommended, a great addition to the restaurant scene in Wellington with a handy location you can easily walk to, particularly if you're staying in one of the hotels centrally located.

Give it a try you want be disappointed.

“Dinner last night was a real treat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2013

The food was very exciting with every course a taste explosion. The Bruschetta was gorgeous, the organic woodfired rotisserie chicken plus salad I’d have again and again and again along with the crème caramel which was to die for. Sal

“A new experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2013

In Wellington to celebrate daughter's degree success, and had a late lunch here at Charlie Nobles. I had the Courgette Cake - delicious. Waiter Travis was very good at table service. Definitely recommend Charlie Nobles to others. Great name for a restaurant, especially where you are positioned over the road from The Bond Store! All in all a good time had by all 6 of us!
