Had got recommendations for Bar Centro. A few nights a week, this is the mekka of organic wine (vins nature) in Gothenburg. However, we only had the chance to visit on a Monday, and had to settle for coffee and a little sweet to go along with it. This was absolutely great! A true hipster place (minus us and a... More

I've just had one of the best meals I have ever had (and I've had a few :-)). The tastes, the textures, the combinations and the presentation were utterly spectacular. Oskar Ahlvin's knowledge of wine and Harry Wong's (he'll get a Michelin star one day, mark my words) true gift for cooking is not something to be missed. I warmly... More

Amazing food and service! Bar Centro is a small hole in the wall restaurant by night and coffee shop during the day. The restaurant is just a few months old and run by two guys who manage to serve all 12 seats with the most friendly and professional service. The food is exquisite and unpretentious, and measures up to what... More

A service level that clearly signals they don't want customers at all. Lousy food too. Life's too short for tacky people who think they're too cool for school.

A friend of Mine recommended this place to try for cafe latte and small biscotti. Small place but great coffee, located very close to centrum.

If you like espresso drinks, this is one of the best cafes in town. It is always nice when it is not the rush hours you go there alone or with a friend, grab your coffee, sit for perhaps for half an hour and leave. And have cash as you can't pay with card. If you are around that part... More

The waiter was very helpful translating the menu and recommending a good dish, the food was simple yet tasty. i will return there to try some other dishes soon. only negative for me was the toilet, a little bit too bohemian and could do with a good clean and a lick of paint.

My wife and I have vistied Bar Centro twice and both times we have experienced an apalling attitude from the staff. I'm sure everybody at some point has come across staff that for some reason feel they are better than their customers and therefore make you feel like you should be grateful for having the opportunity to be served by...

Nice looking coffee shop that has a tiny bit of the wank factor, mostly coming from the staff. Nice strong coffee but not accepting cards is crazy. Not worth the hype.
