    at one of the tables

    The Watermill has great food at great prices. At the time of this picture there was a traditional bulgarian band performing bulgarian folk music and 2 people fire walking. It is an outdoor restaurant located in the mountain area looking down on the city of Sofia.

    Favorite Dish: I will provide more information on this great restaurant soon.

    The Watermill: Proudly Bulgarian

    While you are enjoying your delicious specialties you can see the beautiful folklore show they perform which is a blend of beautiful national costumes, original folk music and songs, lively dances and something very special - fire dancing.

    Favorite Dish: The restaurant is specialized in Traditional Bulgarian cuisine - the unique Bulgarian yogurt, Shopska salad, grills and typical Bulgarian dishes like kavarma, kebap in a pot, kapama, chicken cooked in a miller’s way.......Maybe all this things sound strange to you but that is your chance to become familiar with Bulgarian cuisine during your holiday. You only have to try!
