(1) A centaur, or any other creature having a human head and an animal body, may represent a (needed) union of head and body, ‘spiritual’ and ‘animal’ or sensuous, conscious and unconscious.

Part horse, part human, the centaur combines human intelligence and warmth with the characteristics of the horse. In dreams, it may appear as a caution against hasty activity or behavior. It may also represent the fusion of the horse’s strength and stamina with a human’s intellect and skills; the result is a successful union between the conscious and the unconscious minds, something for which your dream may be urging you to aim, particularly if the centaur was holding a bow and arrow. The centaur is also the symbol of the Zodiac sign of Sagittarius, so could your dream have been referring to someone you know who was born under that sign?... The Element Encyclopedia

A cross may have private associations for you. On the other hand, the cross is such an ancient symbol that its meaning in a dream may have come from the collective - not the personal - unconscious (for this distinction).
(1) It may mean simply ‘no-go’: that something in your life has come to an end; or that it ought to come to an end. Look deeper into yourself for new directions, in both senses of the word.
(2) It may be a crossroads sign. See also Crossroads.
(3) Is the cross in the dream a burden? If so, don’t be too ready to accept the notion that crosses have to be borne. Discover what it is in your life or in yourself that constitutes a ‘cross’, and then remove it - dissolve it with a proper self-love. Burdens prevent you from reaching your full stature as a person.
(4) The cross may be a symbol of death. It may be that your present self, or something in you, must ‘die’ as a necessary prelude to new and fuller life.
(5) It may be a symbol of martyrdom. Is the martyrdom something you feel as an oppressive and crippling restraint, or is it self-imposed? These are not absolute alternatives: what is consciously felt as an undeserved punishment may be unconsciously self-inflicted - for some imagined guiltiness.
(6) A crucifix (cross with the crucified one fastened to it) will carry the symbolism of crucifixion, which may be either martyrdom (as in (5) above), or severe restraining of‘bodily^ or ‘earthly5 desires. Alternatively, it may represent extreme neglect of some psychic component or function (for repression and suppression). Decide whether your unconscious is recommending or protesting against the rcpression / suppression, and act accordingly.
(7) The Greek cross, having all four arms of equal length, may symbolize wholeness: the unified psyche - the unification of conscious and unconscious. (The union of opposites is represented by the vertical and horizontal lines of the cross; wholeness is represented by the way the arms reach out to embrace reality in all directions.)

The cross is a symbol present in all cultures, therefore, it has multiple references. There are many types and each of them refers to its own meaning. For example, the Greek cross (with four arms of equal length) expressed wholeness; Native Americans used to draw crosses to represent the partition of the universe. For Christians, it means suffering, martyrdom, death, and sacrifice. In general, you can see, in its most simple representation, the four cardinal points and the image of the human body with arms outstretched. In the first case, you should interpret this dream as the need to make a decision on an issue makes you worried. However, if you link the cross to the human body this symbol suggests that you need to restore balance, as well as being consistent with yourself.

Until around AD 33, the cross was a symbol of punishment, as well as being a simple symbol of connection. Since that time, the cross has become a powerful symbol of religion, but it also indicates the challenges and tribulations that you face in life. The most obvious connection the majority of us make is with the cross on which Jesus died.
If you are religious and focus on the pain and suffering of Jesus, the cross could mean that you feel there are great burdens in your life that are almost too much to bear. You are being crucified—tortured— for the things in which you believe. The pain is unwarranted but you bear it all the same, and are seeking for a way to handle your problems. Yes, there may be troubles, but if you approach them with a joyful spirit and optimism, you will find a path through them. Your dreaming mind is telling you that you have the spiritual strength within you to overcome any hurdle.
If you are not religious, the cross could stand for a power in your life over which you have no control or that is trying to influence you. It could mean that you have a certain path you wish to take, but that forces are preventing you from taking that path. The cross may also represent something in your life that is wrong or forbidden, or something you need to cross off a list.
If the cross is upright as in +, this suggests correctness and self-assertion; but if the cross is in the shape of an x, it represents reaching out and wholeness.... The Element Encyclopedia

A dream that takes place in a restaurant has the theme of self-care and the celebration of abundance. Any image that concerns itself with food connects to nurturance. This especially applies to a restaurant, as the ritual of being waited on and served is also a form of self-care.
The expense of eating out is always going to be higher than that associated with preparing something at home.
The quality of your meal connects with both abundance and the ability to discern excellence.
A fine meal could reveal that you are indeed being careful to ensure that your life provides for your needs in a way that reflects a consciousness of deserving abundance. However, a dream in which you are served unacceptable food indicates that there is something out of balance in this area.

Eating out in restaurants is often part of a couple’s courting rituals, so dream meals that are cozy and enjoyable reflect good social relationships, and, if you were enjoying an intimate meal for two, your desire for an intimate relationship.
If the person you were dining with is someone you know, this suggests your desire to get closer to them, sexually, emotionally or intellectually. Further clues are hidden in the dream scenario. What kind of food were you eating? If you were eating oysters and sucking fruit, this may denote a desire for a sexual relationship but if you felt your tongue tingle in your mouth, this may suggest a need for verbal or intellectual stimulation.
Your dream dining experience will reveal not only the quality of your physical diet, but also the kinds of beliefs, behavior and attitudes with which you fill your life. What kind of restaurant are you in? Is it humble, exotic, shabby or expensive? Have you chosen to eat in a down-to-earth cafeteria, canteen or café? Or have you decided to eat on the go and grab a takeaway because you are in a hurry? What is the service like in the restaurant and is the quality of the food good? All this will speak volumes about the way you live your life at the current time.
Being turned away from a restaurant suggests frustration and disappointment, as well as a sense of social isolation. To dream that someone clears away the food before you have finished eating indicates problems and issues concerning those who may be dependent upon you in some way.
If you see yourself in the role of a waiter or waitress, the quality of service you provide may express concern about the way you relate to people outside your family circle; you may have a tendency, for example, of being overfamiliar, efficient, clumsy or polite.
