“Delicious food, wonderful overall experience”
Reviewed April 30, 2014

Superb, quirky restaurant tucked away on the first floor of a small shopping centre. Wonderful atmosphere and decor - feels like a trendy little artisanal spot in Cape Town. Excellent wine list, and friendly staff. We decided to try as much as possible on the menu to get an overall idea of the food - which we are so glad we did! The green salad with sesame seeds and Parmesan was one of the best we have ever had. Delicious dressing. We also ordered x 2 small pizzas (salami) (chicken with a tomato base) which were both fantastic - thin crispy bases. The chicken pasta was magical. They really pack a lot of flavor into their dishes, and we were very impressed. Definitely one of our top 3 italian restaurants in South Africa. Well done!

“My new best friend in PE!”
Reviewed March 30, 2014

I found Charlies on Trip Advisor and decided to visit during recent visit to PE.
We (my family) were not disappointed. Great vibe, fantastic food and wonderful service.

Menu was full of surprises. Lamb shank pizza (which I ordered and loved), Great pastas and even a lamb shank lasagna...
Our waitron, Webster, was stunning. Just a perfect evening!
And the prices...outstanding value for money!
We will be back, every time we visit the Baai.

“Good pasta, great view”

Charlie's is on the second floor of a small shopping mall with a view of the beach. The pasta was good and inexpensive. Also a great place for families.

“Best pizza in PE”
Reviewed March 9, 2014 via mobile

This Resturant is a hidden gem in PE . There is a extensive menu which is reasonably priced and the food is delicious . I had a salad and a lamb shank pizza and the quality and presentation where superb . Staff where fast efficient and very friendly . Note that there is live music on a Monday evening . The resturant was almost full on the Sunday night I ate there with a mixture of locals and international visitors . This venue is very much worth a visit .
