  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Stunning location

    Good value for money and appeals to all ages. Friendly staff and good service. Every time i’ve visited there are delays over the holiday season but to be expected so be patient during peak times.

  • Best place on the Island!!

    We’ve been coming to waiheke for over 6 years and year on year any time of day this place never disappoints! Coffee and service is always professional and with a smile. The food is yes “high” in price but amazing! You never feel ripped off or disappointed! Beautiful location on the waterfront of Onetangai, this place is always buzzing and with the latest decor update it is a pleasure to relax in. Down to the little details of a basket of beautifully rolled blankets for those sitting on the deck to take the chill off, and the dog water bowls readily available. This place is a destination for professionals, couples and family’s alike! Absolute destination for the island!
