“Wonderful food and staff”
Reviewed 23 September 2013

Charlies Restaurant and Bar is great. Wonderful and interesting food especially for dinner at night , the view over the lagoon is lovely and so are the staff. They are all very helpful and obliging and nothing is a problem. we have stayed before and it is like coming home. We have enjoyed our dinners, a snack and great breakfasts.

Reviewed 20 September 2013

We had dinner and breakfast there, great mains and buffet breakfast was really good, a bit pricey. Plenty of variety to choose from.

Nice food but very expensive for the quantity on plate. Typical resort restaurant. Better places around .

“We enjoyed our meal.”
Reviewed 11 August 2013

To be honest the only reason we dined here was because we couldn't be bothered driving into town as last year we were most unimpressed with the food. That and the fact that as Advantage Plus members we got 50% discount.
It was busy but the service was attentive and efficient. Our meals were very nice - much better than our previous experience.
The food here is overpriced for what you get. You can dine at a hatted restaurant in a capital city for around the same price or less.
It has a nice outlook onto the lagoon, but that's mostly lost on a cool winter night.
While it was much better than our last visit we would still have been disappointed if we had to pay full price. There are other places in Coffs with better food for the price.

“Most enjoyable”
Reviewed 3 June 2013

Like some of the other reviewers on this page, as a locals we don't often think to go to the resorts for a meal, what a shame we really should. We dined last night at Charlies for a birthday celebration, it was a Monday night and the restaurant was almost full, therefore creating a great atmosphere.

The Pork belly and Salmon were both stand out dishes and we will be back for sure. The service was very attentive and personal.
