First off, we had a beer for OH and I had a red wine, while we waited for the chef to arrive. I ordered a wine top up and he emptied the wine bottle, but only half a measure. He never came back to top...More

Right on the main road of Tarifa, perhaps the square. We had a quick tapas and tinto snack which was good. Service also good. Even out of season it was busy so others must feel the same. We went back later in the day as...More

The title says it all. Also good for breakfast. Enjoy!! Apparently I need to add more words before TripAdvisor will accept this review but what more can you say about good ice cream other than yummy. It closes at 10 pm out of high season.

We stopped to enjoy a drink and some tapas in the main street through Tarifa and received good, friendly service from several staff. The price is fair, the atmosphere good and the situation perfect.

Located on the Place du Petit Socco, the Café Central is definitely a good place to have a drink before going back inside the Medina Maze. The fresh orange juice is absolutely great. I think we had 4 in a row…

Regarding food, there was no value for money. The side salad that accompanied the sandwiches was pathetic. The servce was okay, but organisation and communication could be improved. The toilets need to be inspected and cleaned at regular intervals.

We waited 1 hour and 15 minutes for our breakfast (several times we asked and was told it was a few minutes away). Wouldn't recommend the place.
