I visited Centro with a few colleagues for lunch in January. Everyone enjoyed the food. I had a risotto which was excellent. The service was professional and friendly. If you are in Wollongong it is a great place for a business lunch.

But alas it was Centro CBD that a group of 10 people were very disappointed with just about every aspect of this restaurant.The waiters were not cheerful and seemed to resent our presence.. The meals were overpriced and very small... More

Had lunch with four friends last week and weren't disappointed. All dishes served were cooked beautifully served and the young waitress was very attentive. We would go back there anytime
