Small hole in the wall tucked away next to heavy tourist spots, Half a block from charming Espanola Way and a block from Lincoln Road at prices less than half what restaurants on Espanola are charging. Cook is Peruvian that lived in Argentina, so both seafood and meats are outstanding.

Had dinner here tonight--small place, casual and friendly. Good service. Shared the grilled ham and cheese empanada--$2--for a tasty starter. Walt had steak Marsala and loved it--$18--a real value. I had gnocchi with marinara and homemade mozzarella. Delish. Shared panna cotta because we didn't want to leave. With a nice Malbec and tip, $85. Go, relax and enjoy!

I had snapper with lime sauce, and my companion had skirt steak. Both were delicious. Go on a week night, as it gets very crowded on the weekend.

Saturday night, very busy but we found seats at the bar. Ordered bottle of Chianti and appetizer sampler...both well priced and tasty! The bread basket kept us entertained until our entrees arrived. Yes, it took a while but was well worth the wait. My husband ordered the skirt steak; huge portion, delicious, and a wonderful green salad on the side. Such a welcome relief from the expensive yet marginal touristy dining options on Espanola. We will definitely be back!

Expected great food at a affordable price because Cafe Charlotte was rated highly on Yelp.
We ordered 2 dishes, carbonara pasta & neapolitan chicken breast. Both were atrocious. The pasta was too salty and watery while the chicken was far too dry. The only decent thing was probably the basket of bread served before our food came.
Service was only average but really, the food is so bad I would actually say NOT to go there.
