“After beach spot”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2012

Forget the food, but a few drinks to enjoy the passing youthculture is worth every minute. It is not called Central for nothing. When you get hungry, get a kefta next door, glorious.

“Great chill out”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2012

Central is great for chilling out with a coffee in the sun, it's Spanish owned so is very reasonably priced. Avoid the tourist spots either side.

“Sit here and everyone who is in town will pass by.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2012

The perfect meeting/watching the town go by place. Food fairly basic and service is grudging.

“relaxed breakfast in great location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2011

Visited for breakfast twice while staying in Tarifa. Between all of family, we sampled bacon and eggs, churros, croissant with jamon and queso, coffee, orange juice. Orange juice excellent as was coffee. Central breakfast option really good value. Service exceelent both visits. We were able to enjoy food at our leisure; nobody rushed us and we were able to relax with extra coffee. I wanted to give this 3.5 rather than three but was defeated by the touchscreen...
