Spiros' terrace boasts a great view, has a friendly staff and offers very good Greek cooking at a very reasonable price - an oasis of pleasurable peace. What better place to watch the sun gradually sink into the sea? Spiros is always happy to help if there are any problems, is personable and communicative, yet never intrusive. I can wholeheartedly...

I visited Central many times but never had a chance to write a review. As situation in Greece rapidly changed the owner’s hospitality and attention to clients is the same. That’s why the old clients make a visit for many years. I miss their Stuffed Calamari or Dolmades served on preheated plates and also the morning ambience when only locals... More

We were there many times and we had always very goood dishes. Yesterday we had Beef-stifado, Makarounes, Zuccinicroquettes and a Cheesburger. Afterwards we got some watermelon from the house. Spiros (the owner) is a very nice guy and he knows how to run a restaurant.

We had many dinners here at Central and food was very good. The menu has some stable items (gyros, saganaki, small fishes etc..) and daily changed specialties like mousaka, makarounes, lamb(excellent!) etc. Staff was great. Spiros (the owner) is very kind, always smiling on the place, never forgot to welcome or say good night to every guest.

When de arrived in Lefkos for the first of many times, we had our first meal here. Since then we've had 100 meals and 1000 coffees at this very laid back and cosy place. Friends meet here, and the food is cooked with love and good vibrations from the kitchen. We'll continue our visits at Spiros place every day, when... More

We have been to Lefkos several times, and we always enjoy our meals at Central. The service is great, and they serve lovely, homemade Greek food. The generous owner sometimes offer sweets or a glass of Ouzo after the meal. Very reasonable prices. We'll keep coming back!
