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.

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!
