“Run of the mill food, terrible service”
Reviewed August 16, 2012

Visited at midday, so before the lunchtime rush. Attracting the attention of the waiter was difficult and some people were trying to pay and leave with equally little success.
Food was ok, but chips obviously frozen and sliced bread sandwich was not much to write home about. Disappointing

“Great place for breakfast/coffee.”
Reviewed July 30, 2012

We had time to kill before hopping onto the ferry to Tangier and stopped here for a quick bite. It's not bad place to grab a light breakfast and a coffee. Sit outside and people watch while sipping your coffee.

“After beach spot”
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”
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.
