“Cheerful, informal, Kiwi - what's not to like”
Reviewed March 14, 2014

We were staying nearby so we had brunch and dinner on two separate days. The place hums, with cheerful staff who manage to make it all feel easy. Food is classic Kiwi - well prepared and tasty. Wine list has a good span, at reasonable prices. Outdoor seating is available, we didn't feel we had to book, there's lots of room at most times. Good coffee too. And the beach is right there in front.

“Best spot for brunch/lunch on the island”
Reviewed March 12, 2014

I'm a Waiheke local and every weekend you will find my partner and I enjoying a late brunch at Charlie Farley's.

The location cannot be beaten, the service is friendly and quick, the portions are reasonably priced and large - definitely no tourist prices here!

We really appreciate the laid-back vibe here also. Kids and dogs are always most welcome and we love how no matter what day of the week or time of the day it is - there's always someone having a beer at Charlie's!

“Yummy Mummy!”
Reviewed March 12, 2014

My partner and I have a car rental company on Waiheke and Charley Farley's is one of the few places I always RAVE about. Great, diversified menu, drinks, desserts, location...what more could you ask for? I think one of the best things is that this place does not overcharge for their meals and you actually get a good-sized serving of food!! Great place for all ages!! Various alcohol drinks available, not just beer & wine...if you're in the mood. Great fun on "Quiz Nights" as well. Just a wonderful place overall!

“Perfect Location”
Reviewed March 3, 2014

This is our regular "go to" restaurant on our cycling jaunts from the North Shore. The location of course is superb, sitting on the deck under umbrellas and looking out to the sparkling water. The food is excellent. We enjoyed well filled rolls and then spied the bowl of chips at the next table so had to order a bowl for ourselves. The staff worked hard but were friendly and attentive during a busy Friday lunchtime.
