The restaurant serves good food and is not expensive, but unfortunately the waiters were really rude, they try to take my plate when I was still eating, and when I let the men know he began tu murmur something like it was my fault, in general I felt really disappointed by the service. We end up with a really bad taste and ruined or general feeling of the town

I have been a regular visitor to this place for maybe 15 years, a long time in any case. I had not been here in at least 3 years. I did notice one of the staff members whom I remember from the past.

We ordered a plato combinado which is basically a mixed plate I guess you would call it in English. I had lamb, egg, chips, and vegetables. I order a side portion of patatas bravas whcih are potatoes roaster with a spicey sauce. I just love them. I had a lemonade and a desert and coffee.

The service was not bad. It is still quite a busy place even on a week day and outside of holiday time.

It has been modernised on the inside and I have to say it has lost some of it's charm.

I was a bit disappointed as in the past the food, service and prices were much better. I would only go back if I could not find anything else.

Looking for a place to eat (that is one where also vegans would find something) the tourist office pointed us this way. It was a very nice surprise!
The staff was very friendly and efficient. No problem to have a "only" vegetable main course which was not on the menu of the daily menu choice.

Prices are exceptional, the daily menu comes with "amuse bouche", starter, main and dessert plus water, bread, wine or beer and coffee for only 11€ !

Here my vegan menu:
I had a very nice salad - a variation of young leaves with mustard, beetroot, spinach and salad leaves, fresh carrots and tomatoes ( peeled !!!) with a soy-sauce dressing, my main was an excellent escalivada, accompanied by French fries (not very inventive but at least they have been tasty) and a really nice plate of fresh fruit (2 kind of melons, pineapple and orange).

For omnivores there is plenty of choice also fish and home-made pastry (not something to be found that often in Spain).

When in the area this place is worth visiting.

Cafe del Centre serves real food for real prices and with gusto in both the kitchen and the waitstaff. Located near parking and with a view of the castle towers and park from the spacious, shaded terrace for outdoor dining. Inside is pleasant without being fussy. Daily fixed-price menus provide considerable selection and are amazingly inexpensive. A separate place for the kids to play is also a plus.

With four people we took a table on the terrace and we ordered a menu-del-dia.
Immediately we smelled a pungent odor. We thought at first that the cat, who was walking on the terrace had urinated under our table, but therefor the odor was to strong.
It soon appeared that the waiter spread this bad air around him.
The likely cause: Sweating many days without taking a shower and without having changed his T-shirt.
With each visit from him at our table, > or even when he passed<, we were confronted with this stench.
Unfortunately we had already ordered, so leaving was not an option anymore..
Incomprehensible, that his colleagues had not corrected him. Even a dead man would still smell this guy.
We've eaten as quickly as possible, so we could leave this unpleasant atmosphere.
