Also a great upstairs floor with a view. Good versatile menu. Nice local cake with good coffees. Fair price. Bourgondic atmosphere in the living room, little more tranquil upstairs. Same menu other atmosphere.

Went here for a quick late lunch. I had the tomato soup with fresh mozzarella pieces in it. Very tasty! Also has the chicken skewers with peanut sauce. Very peanut butter tasting but full of flavor.

The Central is a great place right in the centre of Venlo which was warm, inviting and offered great food and beer. What more do you want? Situated next to the old Town Hall we visited on a cold December night and loved the place. Extremely good and helpful staff, a fantastic atmosphere for a Monday night and a great... More

Went here in December 2016 with a family of four. Family friendly, laid back cafe and bistro. Lunch was good (if you like the typical dishes like veal croquettes with fries or kip satee etc.) Can get very busy around noon but there is a lot of motivated staff so that was no problem! We will return here for sure.

Just loved the location and atmosphere here. Plenty off tables with comfortable chairs make this a perfect place to just sit and relax a while. Staff is very friendly and there is no rush to move on even if your glass is empty. This restaurant is mostly just for drinks but offers also a few appetizers and pastries.

Took a group of clients here for a business meal. Really good service, nice place, good food. They hadn't heard of 'Espresso Martinis' but happily made 11 of them one explained. All good.

It's a lovely place anyway. In the main square. Lively and bustling. The people in Venlo clearly like being out because it is always busy in the evening in the square. the Café Central building is beautiful outside and inside. I thought that the staff were great. I can't believe that the people making negative remarks were at the same... More

Cafe Restaurant Central is situated in the city centre. A very nice restaurant near the town hall. There is a variety of dishes. I can recommend the steak with pepper sauce. The staff is very friendly.
