We went to Cafe Charisma again for lunch on Monday and it didn't disappoint. The menu is quite extensive and make sure you look at the specials on the wall as well. The prices are reasonable, the serve sizes were good and the food quality was high. Staff were helpful and pleasant. It can be quite noisy as there are... More

I went into this cafe for a place to sit down and read the newspaper while eating my lunch which I brought from home. Shortly after looking at the menu for what I might order the next time I came in, I was told I had to leave because I wasn't going to order anything. The cafe was nowhere near... More

The staff were friendly,food was excellent and the area is nice and quiet. There were three of us and all enjoyed our... More

I bought a pack of baklava from a deli in Canberra, made by Charisma Foods, but there were no nuts in it. I don't think this qualifies as baklava!? The plain filo and syrup was extremely disappointing.

I visited on a cold night. I was served ice-cold dips on an ice-cold plate with cold bread. I requested the bread be toasted. Shortly after the bread was returned, my main course arrived on an ice-cold plate, giving me no time to eat my entrée. I requested the meal be microwaved, however it proved inedible (my first choice, octopus,... More

Charisma is a family run business specialising in Greek food but with a good range of other dishes as well, including seafood. In addition, the home cooked sweets, cakes, slices and biscuits are out of this world. We eat there at least every week and see many other regulars every visit. The outdoor area is great in the warmer weather.... More

This restaurant has consistently good homestyle Greek food, friendly service and very reasonably priced. It's also BYO. We eat there regularly and always enjoy it.

We eat at cafe charisma most Friday nights - the Greek dishes are the best. Try the moussaka and the lamb souvlaki or the mixed plate.
