Critic's review

Food
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.

Drinks
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.

Service
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.

Ambience
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.

Best for…
A birthday dinner with friends, sipping on a sunset cocktail after work or enjoying a romantic dinner.

  • Honestly one of my favorite pizza restaurants ever. The pizza itself is really tasty and the restaurant is nice and cozy.

  • I cannot lament the poor quality service enough. No one was at the front of the restaurant so I sat myself down at the bar and orderd a glass of wine. After about 10minutes I stop the nearest waiter asking him to reserve a table as soon as one becomes available - I am soon pointed(by the manager) in the direction of a table near the entrance. After well over 20 minutes waiting on a menu I am forced to approach the manager myself who seemed overly concerned polishing cutlery instead of serving hungry, paying customers. Training is poor - non-existent? - and the manager just milling about doing absolutely nothing except maybe polishing spoons(?) I felt extremely annoyed running back and forth to get service, and then waiting and waiting. 20 minutes to get a waiter plus a further 20 minutes for a menu that was stored under a POS desk within reaching distance of my table. I tried to explain my unpleasant experience to the manager but he wasn't having any of it, instead of showing some accountability he leaps into defense mode blaming his waiters I decided to avoid an unpleasant altercation and proceeded to leave upon settling my bill. I will not be returning to an establishment where the manager has no quelms being blatantly prejudiced and rude to potentially loyal patrons.
