Description: Central is looking forward to receive you on Haapsalu main street, right in front of South Gate to the Bishop's fortress. The restaurant is located on the second floor of the building, offering a view of the ancient fortress walls. Two halls, decorate with murals, depicting life in Haapsalu, accommodate up to 75 people. Like the whole Central house, the beer cellar in the basement reminds the 19th century. In winter, nice medieval atmosphere and fireplace will make it an cosy place for having a dinner or enjoying a beer in the company of friends.

“Nice view, terrible food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2014

If You're looking for the worst food in Haapsalu, then this definitely is the place to go! For the price of a restaurant, You surely will receive a plateful of tasteless rubbish.
As we were ordering chicken by the point that it's hard to screw up something like a simple chicken stew... well, we were wrong. The stew actually looked (and tasted) like slop and the chicken was unedibly uncooked. Unfortunately this was not the only dish they managed to screw up, since the salmon was served with deep frozen vegetables, which had no taste at all! And the poached egg tasted strongly like vinegar.
The service was super slow but at least they compensated their chef's messup.
Since I don't like to whine and complain, I will rate this place with 2 stars for a lovely view from the window.

“Perfect view, beautiful design, great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012

Out the window you can see the walls of the castle. The restaurant itself is decorated beautifully. We enjoyed our food. The strawberry soup for dessert was very interesting with a touch of mint. Excellent value as well.
