we went here for lunch and the food was okay but nothing special, the drinks were good though we ordered a maragita which was nice and then decided to try a mocktail which were delicious. The food wasn't expensive but it wasn't cheap either so overall it was an okay restuarant but I would not eat there again

We had dinner here last night and we're very impressed with the lovely staff members. The menu looked good and we were looking forward to our meals. We ordered two of the combination plates which included a few of each of the Mexican items. At around $10aud per plate, the servings were quite small and bland unfortunately. We would have... More

Menu typically as the restaurant is named Mexican and Carribean food. Service a bit slow with staff needing some training.We asked for 2 separate bills but this was ignored.... More

Quiet and uncrowded the 3 times I've been there. The mexican food is ok, but nothing surprisingly good. The kind of place I'd go back to when hungry, but wouldn't go out of my way for.

We were very surprised to see this Mexican Restaurant in the middle of Seminyak. We had a look at the menu and saw that the prices were really affordable. So we decided to come back later the evening for dinner. We visited Chara Restaurant and ordered Nachos from the menu. The food was tasty and not so spicy. Our waiter... More

Awesome experience. Decent tacos. Hispanic music and spacious seating. Would recommend to friends, digital nomads... They have a salsa bar, juices, well lit... One drawback is its right next to the road, so I'm wearing my motorbike mask while working on my computer...

Chara has a good vibe and a variety of dishes to choose from. It is right near our villa so quite handy for a quick nachos and guacamole snack anytime. Last night eight of us went there for dinner and everyone enjoyed their meal. My Dad said his fish tacos were a bit too spicy, but that's what happens when... More
