    We had a wonderful time there. Make sure you get a table in the piano room. The entertainer was great, he had the whole room involved? The wait staff was good. If noise and music aren't your thing, you can dine in the quiet room. Not too pricey and portions were just right. It was a wonderful evening, we stayed after our dinner was done and ordered wine and drinks.

    This was my third time at Cafe Centro, and I can officially declare that the great food and entertainment I experienced the first and second times was not a fluke! They are consistent. I recommend seats in "the back room with the Piano," where things are more lively and spirited. We came in on Mothers Day night to celebrate with my wife and daughters, and it was a terrific time. Don't miss this awesome place - it's much better than you will find in chain restaurants at similar pricing!

    We say a review on TV and picked it for an Anniversary dinner. Almost only twosome there. Many groups of 6-8. Most seemed to be requlars - the Piano Player took 5 minutes just going aroung to see old friends and collect requests ($$). Lots of loud talking. Waitstaff were GREAT - we go brave on the menu - our mistake. Prices were reasonable (one app. two entrees, coffees and a bottle of wine $92). We left a big tip - but will not go back.

    Nice looking restaurant, very clean and setup well. Very friendly staff. Food excellent overall. Suggested from a family member...I found them to have very small portions, but good pricing. I don't think I would visit again, nothing to bring me back to this place- kind of in the middle of a out of the way area for me. Very upset about the portion size, would have rather been charged more for more food. Had the fish special, came with 2 clams and 2 shrimp and 2 mussels. Not enough to eat for $25.00. Left still hungry.

    I have eaten here often and really enjoy the food and ambience. The front room is quieter and good window views. The outside tables are fun and friendly since it is an interesting historical albeit renovated neighborhood. The back room is fun unless you really want to have a good conversation and then the piano is distracting. All in all a good restaurant in WPB and a consistently good menu and fresh fish!!

    We dine at Cafe Centro relatively regularly. It is easier to open table a reservation than call. Well... When we arrived & said we booked on open table we were only allowed to sit in a certain area - not in the room where there was entertainment even though there were open tables. It was not until I disputed it that she allowed us to sit where we preferred. It did not ruin our dinner but Cafe Centro is no longer on top of our list. The food is good. That's why we go back.

I wish that they would have been up front and let me know that it might not be possible to accomodate me. In spite of the disapointment of having one long table we had a great time.......
