We were referred to Charlie's after asking a few of he local guesthouse owners in Barra. Great, friendly service from the bar man and waiter. The food was reasonably priced and of decent portion size. We ordered the Seafood Mix and Prego Roll. Our waiter was wise to suggest we eat what is local, the seafood. The platter was excellent...

Charlie's Bar is situated at the Mokolo Bay Lodge, just past Barra Lodge. The restaurant serves good food consistently and is good value for money.

The place that probably serves the best food at Barra. I must place to visit for food lovers when in the area. Friendly service and great ambience just by the beach.

The vibrant barman and the Relaxing atmosphere make the food taste even better! The food is great value for money, the barman is very funny and the waiters and staff are a Warming bunch!

Pedro gave us a wonderful friendly welcome and efficiently served us with tasty food which was excellently priced. My husband had a huge steak cooked to perfection. My daughter really enjoyed her fish combo. Unfortunately my prawn fishcakes were not very flavoursome.

Great Place to eat. Food was very tasty, and well priced. Beers cold and plenty. Setting is not mind-blowing, but definitely not bad!

The only thing we would recommend was the most delicious peri peri seafood and salad. The venue and clientele was not to our liking.

Great service by Ballas and Klein Ballas. Whilst the setting is not greet, unless you like the Mangrove view, this is great value for money. Try the Prego roll or prawns!

We went once and just had to go back twice more. Excellent food in a very casual environment. From the barracuda to the cheeseburger, everything was reasonably priced and superbly prepared! We will be back
