    We really enjoyed our meal here, excellent service, friendly staff and the personal touch. It was nice to have material serviettes instead of paper ones as some restaurants do. Will certainly come again.

    The restaurant was great. Lovely vibe inside, pleasant aromas, very evocative of authentic Italian dining experiences. The food was delightful, and frankly I wish I could have eaten more than one meal, because some of the other options looked amazing too.

    Had this restaurant recommended to us by a friend. On arrival we were greeted with a friendly welcome and shown to our table in a quite, green, outdoor setting. The waiting time for the delicious food was just right. Great selection of drinks and knowable staff. Will be going back again

    Have been meaning to try this restaurant for a while, and now I regret not going soon. Incredible, authentic Italian food and service. Seafood linguini was impeccable! Highly recommended.

    Food and service was exceptional especially as it was very close to Christmas. We were situated at a table near the kitchen and initially thought it may be noisy and spoil our ambience but it was fine. Try the extensive cocktails list they were amazing and value for money. We will definitely be back.

    We had a lovely for dinner for 2 at Centra. The service was excellent. We were pleased that there was no raucous music as is often the case at restaurants. The food was delicious and the wine very good. We had a wonderful night.

    Gnocchi was awesome as was the ragu. Service excellent and would recommend this place to anyone. Great wine list and although COVIDSafe made the place seem empty we had a great night

About the restaurant

Meet you at Centra

With a focus on architecture, food and drink - Centra Hotel seamlessly links all three delivering a harmonious dining experience that caters to all the senses. The venue, originally constructed in 1854, has been given a recent facelift by renowned architect Tarryn Joyce who has created a comfortable contemporary space, which still highlights elements of Centra’s history.

The menu is rustic and Italian, driven by local produce and a desire to deliver fresh, flavoursome, expressive and honest. The antipasti offering is perfect for an afterwork snack, while the primi, secondi and pizza listings are great for a hearty feast (the pappardelle lamb ragu is simply mouth-watering). The menu is beautifully complemented by the drinks list, which offers a large range of beers and ciders, plus some locally sourced wines and craft brews. Come with your mates and sit out in the leafy courtyard, bring the family for a big ol’ catch up or bring your partner for a casual date night - this place can cater for all.

Best dish: prosciutto & rucola pizza followed by tiramisu.
