Le Central is my personal favorite in Bristol. The owner Chef is dedicated to quality and features great specials daily along with his reliable signature dishes. There is great value with the pricing of the dishes, and the service always the best- Ask for Kristin when you are being seated. She is the kindest and most informed server I have... More

First time to Le Central. Everything about the meal was quite fine--food, service, attention to details. We split several items (there were 4 of us). The kitchen did the splitting, bringing out the food, beautifully plated...this was true of appetizers, mains, and dessert. The ambiance is very pleasant, and you can actually have a normal-voiced conversation.... We look forward to... More

Happened by this restaurant on our way to Newport. The atmosphere is gracious and relaxing, and service was quite welcming. The menu had many interesting offerings. My husband opted for a burger (his "medium" was a bit overdone), but the Tuna Salade Nicoise I was encouraged to order (it was a special) was a bit of false advertising: rather than... More

Le Central is a charming restaurant in the heart of the very beautiful town of Bristol, R.I. It has a slight French atmosphere but is geared to the local palate. The lunch menu is imaginative and has brunch-type and traditional items. I have never eaten there for dinner but know that they have very creative presentations. The service is excellent.... More

Even when it is crowded, Le Central is relatively quiet. One can enjoy a conversation while eating a simple, nutritious and elegant meal. It is also remarkable reasonable, especially lunch and Sunday Brunch. My wife and I have been patrons for over three years. In fact we go here about 45 to55% of the times we eat ut by choice....

We ordered coq au vin and steak frites and we were both very happy. Portions were generous and prices reasonable. I liked the banquette seating and cocotte serving dish that gave an authentic touch.
