Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Very popular, local cafe and always busy. Service is quick and prompt, staff are all so lovely and friendly especially the owner Glenda who I seen the most, she was so nice and very helpful. I am a fussy eater, and can only eat small portions this was cater for, food was amazing every meal we had was well presented and very tasty!! I highly recommend. 😁😁

If you are looking for an amazing cafe. I highly recommend Charlie’s Cafe on the Main Street in the Beautiful Village of Ardra, County Donegal, Ireland. Upon entering I was made feel very Welcome. I was handed a menu and my drinks order was taken. I ordered the Irish Breakfast. It was absolutely delicious and was just perfect! Definitely no complaints from me. The toast was made perfectly. The staff always make sure you are taken care of. I ended up going to Charlie’s Cafe at least six times during my stay in Ardara. I also tried their desserts and paninis. Everything tasted amazing! Philomena, Glenda, Clare and all the staff are all professional, kind and genuinely care about their customers. Charlie’s West End Cafe rates Five Stars and more! It should be noted I am originally from Dublin, Ireland, lived in the United States for over thirty years and served in the United States Marines all over the world. I definitely know a great cafe from all my travels and life experiences. I definitely will return to Charlie’s West End Cafe in the near future. This establishment rates five stars and more! A must visit when in Ardara!

Just pulled in off the road about midday. Greeted at door and our Covid passes were checked by a bar code reader and a simple card given to fill in our contact details. Their efficiency is an example to all other premises. We visited over 25 in the past week and this was by far the best example. Service was very friendly and the food was excellent and quite reasonably priced. Highly recommended, well done.

Visited today. Food was OK, arrived quickly, place was clean. Ordered an omelette which on the menu came with 1/2 salad. Arrived with a garnish...literally a garnish. I asked if the salad was coming and the reply was "There's salad on the plate, do you want more?" Received a small plate of salad and wasn't charged for it. €10 for at most a 3 egg omelette, with two fillings and garnish is a rip off. It would put me off returning.

Went with friends for quick diner.. we’re not fussy people but this place should be shutdown! My Philly steak was probably cook few days ago and reheating in quick oven . Fish and chips have burnt batter and barely fish inside. Mushy peas and baked potatoes look like 3 weeks old or more .Service was friendly but never come back check in on us . If you hungry guys keep look for something else because like me u still be hungry after this one .

This place was our go-to back in the day however in recent years it seems it has gone down hill. The chips are clearly frozen and quite tasteless, battered sausages were alright but the batter was very bland and mushy. It's alright for a quick bite to eat but if you have other options, I would go somewhere else. Ardara seems to be very quiet recently and so a lot of places weren't open such as the Nesbitt Arms, so this was our only option. It fed us, but that was about it. Very disappointing considering how good it used to be.

Fab breakfast and great service. Staff were very efficient and attentive and food was great. We all had the full Irish or mini breakfast - top ups of toast and coffee as needed. Highly recommend!

Visited Charlie’s last week just after lunch time. We were looking for a sweet bite & decided to try their apple pie with ice cream. It was wonderful, a generous portion of pie with 2 scoops of ice cream & a drizzle of caramel sauce. Really yummy! I ordered a pot of tea & it was great too - spotlessly clean.

We go to Killybegs on holiday 3/4 times a year. The highlight of every day is the evening meal at Charlie's. Never disappointed. Excellent food and service. It is a testament that we drive from killybegs to Ardara daily to eat.

Excellent value for money. Fish & chips, burger & chips and a pot of tea were all fab. Excellent service, good specials, very clean and great menu. Not surprised the cafe was packed at lunchtime.

Visited for lunch after looking at ridiculous prices for a sandwich in other cafes in the town. Friendly staff, quick service, good portion of food and reasonable prices. Nice and clean cafe. Would highly recommend

Wonderful little cafe. We went here a few years back when stopping in Ardara and came again today when we were driving through the village reminiscing on our previous trip. The food was delicious and the staff were lovely. Will be back again.
