“Yummy Lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2013

Stopped here for lunch while shopping. Large variety with something for everyone. Nice outdoor seating area which is perfect for the climate here. Service was just OK. Had to wait for refills after glasses were completely empty. But I will definitely return.

“Interesting Drinks”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2013

I didn't eat here, but dropped in for a cocktail. They had many interesting and unique drinks on the menu. One of them I liked and one I didn't. We sat at the bar, service was ok but not fantastic.

“Good cheer”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2013

Great, but limited, menu of tasty and credible Mexican/SA fare. The avocado salsa small plate was extremely fresh and the farm greens salad was big, even by Costanza standards. The evening's burrito special was particularly good, and the parridalla (steak) was properly grilled. During happy hour (3-6) there's $3 Costa Rican Imperial lager can beer but there also Clown Shoes brown angel (all the way from Mass.) on tap for $7. The kids enjoyed the "non flammables"-- a mango spritzer and a strawberry lemonade for $3 ea. Nice outdoor dining area on Pearl St. with friendly service and a very happy place overall.

“Excellent happy hour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2013

We went to Centro for a very late lunch and were pleasantly surprised to learn that we arrived just as happy hour started. We dined outside and enjoyed tasty food (the pork nachos and the chicken tacos were especially good), great margs, friendly service, and a tiny check.

“Great service, delicious meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2013

Great atmosphere, large bar area, nicely arranged table seating. Menu offered an array of interesting dishes. We tried the shrimp, chicken and vegetable tacos, all which packed a spicy kick!
Mojitos were perfect!
