The food is reasonable but the price includes the location / view . service is excellent . they do not hesitate to propose alternative dish if the one you ordered is not to your liking

Last week and this week we tried to have dinner at Charlies in Summerstrand. They told us that a table would be available within ten minutes. After waiting for half an hour (and no table) we left very disappointed. No excuses were made. Never again.

Nice place for breakfast, very popular. Great coffee, I had the shakshuka breakfast and husband had English breakfast. Food was good, just service was slow but likely because of its popularity in a sunny Sunday morning!

Popped here for a quick bite to eat after a busy day. Great pizza, good service and relaxed atmosphere with live music. Located in above a small group of shops but much more of a restaurant than fast food

We arrived for dinner with no booking and fortunately they could accommodate us. Lots of tables had reserved signs. Our waitress was really friendly and efficient. We shared an antipasti board which was delicious and then shared a pizza. The pizza toppings are interesting and varied from the norm (although the normal pizzas were there too). The vibe is cool...

Really nice restaurant with friendly staff, nice wine and brilliant pizza! I had the mushroom and ricotta pizza with avocado and it was one of the nicest pizzas I’ve ever had. Would definitely recommend if you are in the area.
