  Central Grill
by junecorlett

At weekends this venue buzzes with live entertainment. Fridays are for chilling, with a DJ spinning lounge tracks, and on Sundays, there is jazz on the terrace.

Think vintage decor with autumn colours, white-draped tablecloths, comfy upholstered chairs, pink textured wallpaper, glass partitions, crystal chandeliers, soft white curtains and giant mirrors. There is a champagne and cocktail bar on the tiled terrace, a private area with a bar and elegant dining in the carpeted interior.

It is not cheap, but the menu offers a range to suit most pockets. Starters include chicken trinchado, or goats' cheese and basil bruchetta with lime-dressed rocket. For something more substantial, there's lamb stew, peri-peri chicken or steak. Seafood is a strong focus, with platters, catch of the day and specials, like seared tuna.
