Here in Coffs for work and decided against ordering room service and headed to Charlie's for dinner. Lisa my waitress was charmingly efficient and friendly. I ordered the eye fillet with steamed veggies on the side with a glass of red wine. I did ask for the steak to be cooked medium and instead it was very well done. Otherwise... More

Charlies has a lovely feel and outlook. The entrees and main courses were very good and you certainly won't go away feeling hungry as we found the meals very large. Mt fillet steak was cooked to perfection and there were no disappointments at the table. The stand out for presentation and taste were the prawn and scallop dumplings.......beautiful.

Lovely light meal and a couple of cold drinks set in a delightful location and shared with a family of water dragon lizards. Good value in a quiet resort on the coast.

We ordered mains only as they looked quite filling. My husband ordered The Eye Fillet of Beef with Tomato Mash. He said it was so delicious. I ordered Veal Scallopini with Scallops, Prawns and Potatoes and Broccolini. It was the best Veal Scallopini I've ever had. The sauce was amazing and it didn't have a ton of garlic to hide... More

We took some friends to Charlie's for a birthday celebration. They were originally from Sydney and were amazed at the quality of the food and the generous portion size. Service was prompt and friendly.

a recent visit to meet up with my Geelong family, to celebrate our Dad's 80th saw us staying and eating here at Charlie's. 2 evening meals & 2 Breakfasts were just delightful. Best of all were the evening meals. To savour the delights of flavour combinations available on the menu (twice) was wonderful. The meals were fulfilling in both the... More
