  • Happy bar and grill

    4 out of 5 stars

    Sofia Restaurants

    I have a love/hate relationship with the Bulgarian (established Varna 1994) restaurant chain Happy. I love the food, I love the ambience and I love the prices but I hate how easy it is to eat at nowhere else in Bulgaria but Happy - Happy is just too accessible! Here in Sofia there are several outlets with the main one being on the corner of St...

    Plovdiv Restaurants

    This is a local chain that I ate in once in Plovdiv and once in Sofia. Indoor and outdoor seating. They advertise Italian, but I enjoyed their salads very much. They also serve full meals with meat as ordered. Had a Shepherds salad in Plovdiv that I couldn't finish and a very sweet desert. Yummy! The coffee, like almost everywhere in Bulgaria is...

    Plovdiv Restaurants

    This is a hotel with a restaurant, but I haven't been in the hotel, so I don't have opinion about it. I can say the restaurant is very good-the style and food are really amazing. The house is very strange, it is old-styled, with wooden floor and old furniture. It is very cozy and pleasant. Everything is good, but the baked pumpkin is a very good...

    Sofia Restaurants

    This restaurant was recommended in all three sources I was using, In Your Pocket, the Eyewitness Guide to Bulgaria and Wikitravel plus it was really close to our hotel so we went here for our 2nd dinner in Sofia. Wikitravel said it was mostly local but with any theme restaurant like this that is close to a tour group hotel like the Dedeman Princess...

    Plovdiv Restaurants

    Perhaps the place to be. Located in the heart of the old town and build on the foundations of the Roman fortifications. In the cellar you can see parts of the old walls. The resaturant’s house has a history. At the place Islam monks had build a temple, which was later enlarged to function as buildings for the city’s government. In the communist...

    Sofia Restaurants

    The food was amazing, in large portions, and cheap. English menus are available. Our waitress was very nice, and patient (she spoke no English and we spoke no Bulgarian!). When you enter there are two levels - the top is non-smoking and the bottom is not. I ate the sarmi (stuffed vine leaves) and tarator (a yogurt-based cold soup), while AJ had a...

  • Chuchura

    Plovdiv Restaurants

    With my dinner companion for the evening being one of Plovdiv's most charming, educated and beautiful young women my experience of Chuchura was kinda skewed. It's only the fact that I took some pics of the food and the restaurant in general that allows me to even attempt to write a semi-objective review ;-) You mightn't realise there's a...

    Sofia Restaurants

    It is a good place to to eat at lunch time. Prices are reasonable, the food is OK and the service is more or less quick enough. I often go there during my lunch breaks. Don't go there in the evening unless you don't mind waiting for a table. The place is fully packed after 20.00 h. The menu is both in Bulgarian and English. Working hours: 00:00...

    Beyond the alleY, Behind the cupboarD - I'm not joking, that's the name of a lovely and relaxing small restaurant in a narrow street not far from Sofia's heart.

    This review and the one for Simova Takashta will be identical. Both were difficult to find because this Yank's eyes couldn't translate the cyrillic alphabet. Both restaurants offer traditional Bulgarian fare and the prices were very reasonable...actually pretty good for the section of town they are in. I only wish I had room for dessert at both...

    Sofia Restaurants

    I discovered the O!Shipka restaurant thanks to Kristian, a friend I met via CouchSurfing. He took me there to show me a typical Bulgarian restaurant and let me taste some traditional food. I liked it so much that I went back there at least one more time, with a colleague (who was a narrow-minded Italian, so he didn't appreciate anything). The...

    I liked Sofia cafes. There you can meet local people, workers, traders, taxi drivers, students, whole families with children, hikers, old ladies with an aristocratic look, in a word: a whole humanity! And you can eat at every time of the day and have coffee or beer at every hour. I tried many of them, it's plenty of them all around the town, one...

    Romance is a sweets shop in the outskirts of Vitosha, in Simeonovo which is about 20-30 min by car from the centre of Sofia. Basically, once you are on the Vitoshki Ezera street you can not miss it. It is situated in a 3 floors buiding with a view to Sofia. The good part is that their sweets are delicious. Now let me tell you what I find a bit...

    If you visit the central market you will notice that it’s not only a nice place to visit and do some shopping but also a place where you can drink coffee or have a cheap lunch. On the upper floor there is a large seating area full of locals that eat from many fast food options. We had a delicious soup (2leva), bread (1lev) and a dessert (2,6leva)...

    Actually I wrote dragonnes because I did not know how to translate "lamia" in English. It means female dragon :) My overall impression of the pub is good. There is a nice yard, the fod is delicious and the prices are reasonable. The only drawback is that thewaiter tends to forget the orders, so if you do not get what you orderedin 10 minutes...

The music is not too laud. The place is noisy because too many people are talkink at the same time and the distance between the tables in not that big. So, if you...

    The title summons it all up, delicious but pricy. If you want to spoil yourself and you are not short of money that is the place to go. The place is supposed to have a neo-African Atmpshere. The service is very good. And due to the fact that Sofia is too far from the sea - high prices. Working hours: 11:00 h - 24:00 h The fish is fresh and...

    For our 1st dinner in Sofia, we opted for Halbite which came recommended in our Eyewitness Guide and In Your Pocket (slightly out of date). All of the outside tables were taken, the waiter apologetically said that he was really sorry but all he had were non smoking tables inside. We headed indoors and sat at a long wooden table

    Although the name of the place is Baiaderka (belly dancer) there are no belly dancers around. The restaurant is completely off the beaten path but the view is fantastic.

    This pub is as German as it can get in Sofia. The interior is quite nice and roomy but it could get too noisy in the evenings. There is life music sometimes.

Usually they are switched to a sport channel showing football...

You can...

So far so good :) but then we weren't even finished with our drinks when the waitress tryed to sneak our cups away. Than the bill came. It read 5.50 leva,...

    This is a traditional bulgarian thing ,made out of red peppers ,tomatoes and spices and it's yummy !You just spread it on bread with put cheese , boiled egg or some salami on it.

    Bulgarians definitely prefer the social aspect of eating rather than the more formal style of what I call "Fine Dining" and so there are relatively few such establishments around and those that there are tend to be more aimed at us tourists.
