As always food was well presented and innovative. The standard of service is very high and we and the birthday girl were impressed by the specially presented dessert for her which had a birthday message piped in chocolate around the rim of the plate. This is an example of how the staff go that extra mile to ensure that your... More

Myself and my family visited Charlie's on our one night in Coffs Harbour and I'm so glad we did. We had a two course meal and both were absolutely superb! I couldn't get over the size of the dessert!! Our waitress was friendly and kept us up to date with the status of our food. Only down side for me... More

Even though booking is not essential, we did made a booking and were seated at a very nice spot, overseeing the lake. The menu, which was the hightail of the night, was amazing, not pages and pages to choose from, but out of say 10-15 dishes, it was difficult to choose ( everyone dish seemed so nice). I settled for... More

Whislt the food was tasty the waitress on the night was very rude. She smiled through her behaviour but you got the distinct impression it was her way of the highway which was not appreciated.

We enjoyed a perfect dinner at Charlies on New Years Day. The staff were friendly and attentive and provided excellent advice on our menu selections. The food arrived in good time and was excellent in quality and generous in portion size. I indulged in the duck which was tender and beautifully presented. My husband selected the rib eye steak which... More

We ate here during our stay at the Novotel and were highly disappointed. I am used to receiving great food from the Accor range of hotels but we wont be back at this one. Even breakfast was disappointing.

We were staying at nearby apartments and decided to dine locally at Charlie's. After making our booking, we realised that there was a football training camp in residence and staff were having to cope with about 150 ravenous male diners. Despite those challenges, our meal was very good, service was excellent and all the staff were cheerful and helpful. We... More

Best for me - good gluten free choices. Nice wine list, good food. We had parmesan toast with pesto, veal scallopini, he had the lemon lime tart, and I had the GF ginger cake. (I couldn't finish it). Pleasant decor, but very little in the way of sound absorbing materials, so on a busy night, expect lots of noise.

It is rather a nice place. A bit out of town, and with that classy hotel feel. Unfortunately rather over-priced, which means it is preferable to go somewhere in town if you have the choice.

We travel between Sydney & the Gold Coast regularly & always enjoy the food & ambience at Charlie's Restuarant. The staff are always pleasant & welcoming and there is a good selection of cuisine.
