There are plenty of bars and clubs dedicated to jazz, where you can have a drink and or indulge yourself with a nice dessert, but in Café Central you can actually have dinner to the sound of jazz. Start with the delicious appetizers – from cheese platters to the traditional jámon ibérico, there are a lot of flavours to choose from. When it comes to salads, we recommend the exquisite green salad with gorgonzola cheese, apple and nuts. There are great main dishes for lovers of both fish and meat – we recommend the Salmon for the former and the grilled rib-eye for the latter. If you’re in the mood for something lighter, make sure to try their famous sandwiches. In the land of desserts, while there’s a lot to choose from, you really can’t go wrong with their Nutella crepes.
