Dinner was amazing, the girl who served us was so helpful.
Great service, helpful friendly staff and great food.. We ate outside due to covid. The eating area was really nice.. It was a little chilly which is to be expected.. But really enjoyed our time there 😊thanks guys.
Super as always, excellent food and excellent service.
The team are doing everything they can to abide by all Covid regulations but it in no way impacts the atmosphere or experience.
Fab food, decor and drinks. Friendly and attentive staff. We sat outdoors upstairs and were given blankets sealed in bags from when they were cleaned so you could feel safe to use them. Sanitiser on the tables and all staff in masks. Really enjoyed our meal and will be back again soon
Great food excellent service look forward to our next visit
Had a really enjoyable evening here at this restaurant tonight . Our food was delicious !!! , all the staff was so friendly , welcoming and attentive . Our waiter in particular ( I wish I got his name now ) was a gentleman . And even with all the covid restrictions going on , we still had a very enjoyable evening .
Everything, was gorgeous! Lovd the Bar areas new look, food second to none & staff are great fun !
Even got a Surprise Birthday Cake & Candle... Thanks Guys xx
Lovely atmosphere, food and drinks with great service
But the area opposite the rooftop bar where we drank was very cold at times as the door was left open
Very pleasant staff and child friendly. Food was very tasty.
Absolutely fantastic restaurant, top class no complaints, food is just wonderful.
Very pleasant evening, the food was lovely and the place was spotlessly clean.
Jess looked after us very well. The food was tasty and piping hot.
I really enjoyed my experience in the central the staff catered to our every need and the food was delicious
Great service very fast and the food was so nice social distancing was good and was not over crowded will definitely be going back.
Food and Cocktails were amazing as previous. Waiters are super friendly. Only thing I didn't enjoy was on our visit it felt quite packed and none of the Covid 19 guidelines where being followed in regards to social distancing. Downstairs did seem alot quieter and better managed though.
Everything was very very good.Very good service...
Fabulous food, super pleasant staff and all over great night out 🤗
Fantastic atmosphere & very efficient & friendly staff. Thoroughly enjoyable evening
The food was tasty enough but very overpriced. €20 for a stir fry with chicken is way too expensive, barely a chicken fillet with literally green pepper, courgette julienne and onion. We thought everything on the menu was overpriced, €18 for a salad! By booking on app I picked hightop seating thinking it would the the high tables in the bar but it was upstairs and quite isolated but maybe in this current climate that would suit people . There wasn't much ambience because of this but I could not fault the staff for their attention, they were really good
As soon as we arrived we waited to be brought upstairs then back down again.We had booked for a standard table for 4 and We’re given the high top table right at the main entrance which people were coming in and out constant breeze. There were no specific waiter/waitress allocated to tables so we were asked same questions multiple times. Food was fabulous and value was fine €50 a head roughly for starter,main steak, dessert & drink.
Amazing food, fantastic service, great atmosphere & a fun night 👌
Food and drink was lovely. I did feel it was a bit overprices for what we got, but in general, all good.
ALWAYS FAB.. staff are the best.. bar area looks great after a likkle makeover ..
Was nice evening out, food was okay but when we paid for the bill and was about to leave the waiter came after us telling us we hadn't paid the total amount. It was in front of everyone as we were leaving and insisted we didn't pay enough. We figured it out that he hadn't put through the right amount on card machine and we didn't ask for receipt so it was his fault even tho we thought we had given a tip too. It was just just we were made look like we were in wrong at the front of the restaurant for everyone to see as he kept insisting. It was a disappointing end to the evening.
Very well set up checking temperatures the door!
Always a fab experience at The Central! Thank you! x
Good food, nice mix of couples and groups. It's a super spot for everyone!
I had not been to the Central since before lockdown in March. I was so impressed with the measures taken to ensure customer and staff safety. The staff who seated us and served our table were amazing. So friendly and welcoming. The food was exceptional, delicious and reasonably priced. Already planning to return again soon.
The Central is a wonderful setting in the centre of Navan town. The food is really tasty and not over priced, the staff are super attentive and friendly, 10 out of 10!
Fantastic friendly waitress, food was just amazing. Great choice from menu for family of five. Really attentive staff and ambience was just so relaxed. WILL be back again.
Food, staff were excellent but very very poor social distancing , in the social area people and hugging in large groups standing up
VERY POOR NEEDS MORE CONTROL
Nice bars and plenty of choice staff friendly and helpful
Love this place and felt very comfortable here even with the covid restrictions etc. Food is always really good and staff are friendly and very attentive. Could not fault it and looking forward to bringing friends here for our next meal out. The menu has such great choice, could easily pick out more than 5 dishes that I'd be very happy with. The chefs and staff are doing a great job.
Service was terrible; was asked to leave table and sit at bar despite other tables being left alone. Felt as a nuisance sitting at the bar with staff working. Asked for bill multiple times off one staff member and she didn’t get it for me, while walking around the restaurant doing nothing. Espresso martinis were very poorly made.
Covid restrictions are ruining pubs but these guys making the best of a bad situation 👍
This is our second trip to The Central, the food this time was ok, not great. I was really impressed with all the Covid rules that are being adhered to and felt totally safe for the duration of our visit. Top marks for that!
Great place for nice casual dining. Staff are really welcoming and attentive.
Great space and atmosphere has always been upbeat.
The food was great except for they seem to have changed the pepperoni on the pizza to a cheap luncheon style Meat . Not a great way to save money or maybe suppliers are limited at the moment.
Will be back
I had enjoyable meal with my friends the service was excellent but the nose level was very loud and there was no social distancing at all
Felt very safe; upon arrival there was a free standing digital thermometer to check your temperature. Lovely, friendly waitress took us to our seats where there was hand sanitizer on each table. Bar man was very attentive and friendly, straight away took our drinks order and then our food order when he returned with the drinks. Food was outstanding. The thai curry was unbelievable, I highly recommend! We can't wait to go back!
