We were at the bar two weeks ago and had a great experience listening to the piano player but the food was another thing. The Weiner Schnitzel had a fishy flavor. It was a first for me and was not a good flavor.

Food was excellent and service was very attentive. On top of all that,... More

On sunny days the sidewalk seats with umbrellas are very popular as one can get in some excellent people watching. Inside, there is the main bar... More

Positive: - food quality: cooked according to request, brilliantly seasoned! - choices: great variety - service: friendly and courteous Negative - pricy - service: we were served fries from a basket hold by the waiter.

The bar at the Hotel Central has a nicelocation and was not too crowded. The resident pianist was good and we found ourselves wishing to find a hotel bar lounge such as this in our own home town, were we could easily sit and have a drink and chat in a place with pulse.
