Great location, very popular, good food, prices and portions. We went twice and had the $25 full meals including salad, rice, meat of choice and cake with icecream for dessert. The only reason this review is not a five is that the restaurant had run out of chicken. (If you have been to Raro, you'll see some irony in that comment.) It happens, I ordered the beef instead. Unfortunately it was Way over cooked, burnt on one side. When I mentioned it to a server, he basically dismissed me.
Sandwiches $14 are the size of the plate, huge! Nightly live entertainment was good. If you are there with a group ask about the platter, it isn't on the menu but we saw groups getting it. Happy hour until 6pm, discount prices on handle beer and jugs. You can add fries and a beer to sandwich meals for $8. If it's windy this is a great place to watch kite surfers. Closed Sunday.

My friends and I recently visited Rarotonga, and we ate at Charlie’s every second night! We couldn’t get enough. Fresh fish, great steak and excellent service. It’s a must for anyone visiting Rarotonga!
