“smart, honest food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2011

A charming young irish woman skillfully ran the front operation, a perfect compliment to the talented chefs. This is a must go to place for those interested in delicious, honest food. My man needs to identify all the ingredients on his plate thereby eliminating most restaurants on the island. We were delighted with rich, sophisticated flavors and would come back in a second. The manchego appetizer with a glass of our BYOB has us thinking of our next visit.

“Small place, big food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2011

Very small restaurant but great food with generous helpings. Would go back but be warned, it is very small so you may be queuing if you turn up at lunchtime.

“Best lunch on the island”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2010

We found the Centre Street Bistro to be an excellent option for an honest, high quality lunch with fresh ingredients and creative flavors. The soups are fantastic, the homemade bread is great, and the salads and special entrees are just different enough to set them apart from their competitors. While the main dining room is quite small, it wasn't uncomfortable for us (especially since we arrived early and had our choice of tables). We intend to be frequent customers while on the island.
