Found this little place in Lesser Town after climbing the Bell Tower at St. Nicholas Cathedral. Great food, friendly service, insanely good prices. Recommend it highly!

Hello Joris v,
That is exacactly the idea. We like to offer something different to the people who look for something else then duck or goulash and to deliver value for money.
Thank you for your review which encourage us in doing so

We were actually in the area because we were following directions in the Europe Lonely Planet to another restaurant. After a good 15 minutes of searching the different streets and asking some of the locals we surmised that our destination dinner joint didn't actually exist! Face palm! So by this point we were both starving AND a wee bit miffed that we'd been on a wild goose chase. The four of us were standing on a street corner thinking 'Ok so where shall we go next?'. We knew we didn't want to head back towards the main tourist areas as food is generally more expensive there and not always very good. Then my mum turned around and saw a little doorway with a menu beside it and she said why don't we try here? It was the back entrance to El Centro so it looked a bit uninhabited. We ventured our grumbling tummies inside and a waiter said we were welcome to sit inside because the garden was full on the other side. It meant that we would have to be in the smoking section but as he kindly pointed out, no one was really smoking at the time. So we happily sat and enjoyed a wonderful feast! The menu was very well varied, the service was brilliantly fast and the food was perfect in amount, taste and price. The toilets were clean although could do with some updating. But hey, you go for the food! I would recommend this place to anyone and send a shout out THANK YOU to El Centro for entirely cheering up some tired tourists.

Ate at El Centro on 17th July. Shown to our table. Seemed a nice inviting place. I had entrecote steak with chips and a cheese sauce. Although I wasnt asked how I would like it cooked it tasted very nice. Friends had paella for 2 people.Tried that also and that was beautiful. Overall well worth a visit
