It was very busy and loud. Loads of families so good if you like that. Good that instructions say: take a menu, Grab a table and order at the bar. Lamb shoulder burger was tasty and coffee was good. Staff friendly.

Facing Onetangi beach, great easy going cafe with good food and great view of the beach. Come straight off the beach or meet friends there, all good. Ordering is done inside and paid for at the same time, which also gives the freedom of leaving when you want. Plenty of water which you can help yourself to (free). Great Kiwi... More

Good atmosphere in this busy little cafe overlooking Onetangi beach. Sadly our burgers were pretty ordinary and the chips were cold. Maybe just an off day?

The waitress didn't know what was a Bordeaux Wine ... Wrong spelling on the menu .... . The new menu with good ideas was just without any love of cooking or good balance of spices and too many meats are on the menu too much deep fry stuff. Service not good. Heavy desert, chocolate cake was not possible to be... More

Lovely setting, very busy with ample seating. Allows dogs outside on lead - yeah! Food disappointing - fish & chips saddest looking dish; oily and over cooked / burned batter. Chefs choice was brisket in a jaffle - 6/10. Beer was cold

A great spot to unwind for lunch or dinner and take in the ocean views over Onetangi beach. The service is great with friendly staff and the food worth waiting for. I ordered one of the burgers and was pleasantly suprised at the use of ingredients along with the great taste. Check tge details of ingredients as some of them... More

Our first day in Auckland so we took the ferry over to Waiheke Island. Our bus ride looped around the island and we got off for lunch at Charley Farley's. Combination of view, dining outside and a nice lunch....perfect way to spend day one.

We had a fantastic dinner last night with good service. The menu is fairly new and everything coming out of the kitchen looked and smelled amazing. We had the oysters,steak specials and the kids had the fish and chips. Good wine list and a lively and jovial atmosphere for the off peak season. Service was friendly and super efficient. Colouring... More

Went in the winter at lunchtime on a Tuesday. Place was buzzing and you can see why. Food fairly simple but well presented and tasty. If it wasn't for the fact that I live 12500 miles away in Wales I would definitely go back time and time again.
