Charlie’s is famous for its delicious breakfast menu and, of course, its wood-fired thin-crust pizzas and hand-made pastas. All pizzas are made with a home-made tangy tomato base and only the finest locally sourced ingredients. Tuck into the salami, creamy avocado and gorgonzola pizza or the gourmet mac and three-cheese pasta (add bacon, if you dare). If you’re not a pizza or pasta fan, the menu also features a tender slow-roasted lamb shank with a creamy mash and a red wine jus.
You’re sure not to leave Charlie’s hungry, as even the regular portions will leave you satisfied. For vegetarians, there are many options on offer, including healthy buddha bowls, a range of salads, pizzas and pastas.
Known as a cocktails and sundowners spot among locals, Charlie’s sports a wide selection of crafty cocktails, which are all reasonably priced. The restaurant offers a small range of white and red wines, bubbly, spirits and craft beer, which is brewed by Repton family’s very own brewery, Richmond Hill Brewing Company. For non-alcoholic options, there are various caffeinated drinks available as well as juices, cold drinks, and really thick milkshakes, which are definitely worth ordering.
Guests are made to feel welcome in the space, with friendly waitrons ready to seat you at your favorite spot. The staff are clued up on the menu and the food is served out fairly quickly.
The eclectic décor of the restaurant lends itself to the idea of a bohemian rhapsody. Buddha bar-style music plays in the background and creates a lovely atmosphere for the dining experience. There’s also an outside area with breathtaking views of the ocean. The space is filled with color, greenery and warmth, which fit the unpretentious menu perfectly.
