We had brunch here as we heard Charlie Bill was doing brunch in the weekends. We had eaten dinner here and really enjoyed it so thought they would do a good brunch and we were right. All three of us loved our tasty and generous food and we are likely to return.

It seemed like a perfect spot to have brunch on a Sunday. The place was cosy and our seat was sunny. The hot chocolate was the perfect temperature and taste and we rated it a 10 out of 10. When the meals came out we were amazed with the presentation. The French Toast had plenty of fresh orange and banana, topped with delicious bacon. We had the big breakfast. Mushrooms were creamy, bacon crunchy, eggs poached to perfection, with roast potatoes, tomato & relish. Delicious!

Went to Charlie Bill on a Thursday night, relatively quiet but great to support local business, bistro style, laid back and relaxed. Entrees were hot smoked salmon and goats cheese soufflé, absolutely outstanding. Mains were seared lamb rump and grilled beef fillet, soft tender flavoursome New Zealand product. Shared the pavlova for dessert. Would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone wanting to experience a high quality meal.

We went out to dinner at Charlie Bill's on Saturday night in a group of eight. This was to celebrate a significant birthday for one of our group. The restaurant was quiet, with only two other couples dining, in addition to our group. Our table took up all of one half of the restaurant. The choice of restaurant was a good one for a group of eight. Service was excellent - very attentive to our needs and not at all overbearing, rather, friendly and knowledgeable. The food was very good quality - we couldn't fault anything we were served. Most had the filet of beef as a main, and the orders ranged from medium to rare, and all turned up cooked perfectly. It was one of those evenings where everyone is having such a good time, and the food just seems to arrive seamlessly, as did the topping up of the wine glasses. The wine list was very good, too, with some interesting wines to choose from.
