What our locals say about us

  • Great surroundings, delicious food

    Came across Charley Farleys whilst out walking the beach which ended up being a fantastic spontaneous find. Emersons on tap and delicious food. We ordered the 2 main specials of Sirlion Steak and fresh Snapper. Both came out incredibly fast even though the restaurant was filling up fast. Very delicious food, great deck and top friendly staff.

  • Can’t beat the location

    We went here for brunch. Staff are super friendly and you can’t complain about the food, good solid brunch fare. But really this place is about the location and views. Onetangi beachfront is a pretty special place to eat your breakie.

  • Charley Farleys

    Waiheke; Auckland’s very own island paradise, boasts several bars which could’ve made this list. Charlie Farley’s beats them out because a) when sitting on the deck, you feel like you’re at a mates bach and could stay all day b) the staff are an absolute hoot. If you want a bartender with amazing service, better banter and dishy good looks ask for Jules; you’re in for a treat c) The location – right on Onetangi; Waiheke’s most popular and arguably most beautiful beach. You can pop down for a dip in the ocean between drinks and enjoy amazing sea views while sipping on a brew. You bloody beauty.

  • Humming!

    We had several enjoyable meals at Charley Farleys, the food was dependable and well presented i would particularly recommend the seafood chowder it was delicious! Every time we visited it was busy so either book or be prepared to wait for a table, but its generally a good sign when a place is that busy.

  • Great Cappuciano

    Excellent coffee, service and price – purchased 2 cappucianos and a long black for less than on the mainland. IWonderful views across the bay.
