“Just average, nothing spectacular..”
Reviewed September 25, 2011

There are a handful of options in Leftkos and this one was ok.

On our arrival we were sat down and given menus. They were mostly handwritten (which I thought was quirky). Of our 2 menus, there were some differences in a few meals so if you go, compare atleast 2 menus.

We ordered a gyros plate and a Greek salad. The gyros was pretty expensive for what it was (7.50e) considering you could get a gyros pita for just 2e. The chips were handcut but were served cold and were not nice (if served fresh from the fryer, they would be much better). The meat was very fatty and my boyfriend who is a gyros fanatic said it was his worst in Greece. My salad was nice though, the olives were a highlight. They were tiny green olives, a nice change.

Beer was the cheapest we've had, only 2e for a 500ml Mythos (!!!). So 1 beer, plate gyros and salad was 14e.

But I wont be rushing back...except for a few 2e Mythos!

“Great food, reasonable prices!”
Reviewed August 8, 2010

Central Cafe is the perfect greek taverna. Great tasting food, reasonable prices, friendly staff. I don't think all the staff passed their english exam at school, but that is only charming.

“Central Cafe Lefkos”
Reviewed July 8, 2009

The Central Cafe is owned by Spiros Harokopos, the food is prepared from fresh ingredients and cooked to perfection, the service is friendly and relaxed, the menu is very varied and is typically Greek with certain concessions towards the tourist, and is very reasonably priced, perhaps this is why many of the locals eat and meet here, I can recommend this Taverna to everyone.
