Visited here on Friday night and the whole experience was a delight . We had a drink at the bar first and the owner(Bertrand) greeted us as we sipped our cocktails . After taking our food order we asked for him to recommend a wine to go with our meal . Bertrand went into the restaurant and reappeared with 4 bottles of red wine which he recommended and allowed us to taste . We stayed at the bar with Bertrand until our table was ready for us to enjoy our perfectly cooked steak . The owner made sure we enjoyed the best time of our holiday .. Richard and Kirsty

Good restaurant for lunch after being on the sea in the morning. The menu is not amazing but there is a lot of promotions with fresh seafood. Still it's a good restaurant with sea view.

We ate here twice on our recent trip. The first time was a Saturday night and was busy, the next vist during the week was very quiet. The manager was pleasant and the food was very good. I would recommend this restaurant.

We visit the Algarve in almost every season. Every stay we try to visit and enjoy a diner at Bistro Central. This restaurant deserves truly a triple C award; classy, comfortable and creative cooking. That's even four C's (!). A lot of regional competitors have fresh fish, meat and the best vegetables at their fingertips but don't succeed in providing a great meal out of it. Bistro Central always offers a variety of very tasty meals against reasonable prices. The atmosphere is cosy - a bit french bistro style off course as of the french owner - and relaxed. Tip: Try to start you diner on time with a nice cocktail at the entrance/bar area. Looking forward to visit Bistro Central again!
