It's a bit glitzy for a local restaurant, but plenty of Bulgarians seem to eat there (not just a tourist trap!); a Mehana is a restaurant serving (mainly or exclusively) Bulgarian food cooked to traditional recipes, and many like this one have live entertainment: folk music, singing, dancing. On the expensive side at around twelve pounds for two including side dishes and drinks. Excellent band. Great atmosphere! Great service!
Favorite Dish: You won't be disappointed with anything. The garlic bread is almost a meal in itself!
The main thing here is the salads...tons of thems and they come in portion size that is huge for the bulgarian/europian standard!Don't miss the pizzas and quick meals as well!
The staff is very friendly and the service is one of the best in Bulgaria (at least from my experience).
Everytime i go to Varna i stop by "Godzila" even if am not hungry!
Anyway, there are two "Godzila"s in Varna and the one on Maria Lousa has a patio.
There is smoking/nonsmoking sections and AC.
If u want to pay using a credit card be sure to tell them this in the beginning when you order, otherwise they'd come up with some explanation that does not make sense.
Favorite Dish: All the non meat salads!
(i'm sorry, i'm no expert on meat, but my family seem very happy from the meat salads....so i guess they work too!)
i know that my mom always orders the "Godzila" salad!!!

I promise to give it a try when the occasion presents itself :))
Working hours : 08:00 - 00:00h
For those travelling with kids I know how important is for the little ones to find some well known brands so, in Varna you will find both McD and Kfc near the Holly Virgin Cathedral.
Favorite Dish: As for me, I discovered a local delicious salad made from cucumbers,tomatoes and cheese;there is another version with cucumber,tomatoes,cheese and red pepper(X-tra large portions anyway)
Another new restaurant chain in Varna is Florenza.
The food here is cheap but still excellent, try the pizza and pasta menus,
remember to say "smetkata molya" when you want the bill
Favorite Dish: my favourite is the closed pizza, mmm very filling.
If you turn left at the end of the main pedestrian street (that goes towards the beach) you will find Timbuktu fish restaurant, it isn't the cheapest on offer but the food is well prepared and perfect after a long bathe in the sun.
Favorite Dish: Marinated Mackerel, rice and vegetables
The restaurant is situated close to the beach in a very quiet spot. The wooden furniture gives you an archaic ambiance. The stewards there are talking good enaugh english so don't worry about misunderstandings. The menu is in English and German. Generally they have all kinds of meals both international and Bulgarian.
Service is very good, everybody is kind and very careful with you.
Favorite Dish: I recommend to try the Bulgarian Salad that has a very good mixture of flavours and colours. All the vegetables are very fresh and very well arranged. I've also ordered a Vienner Schnitzel that was so big that can feed all Iraqi Army. Be careful to order the the traditional Bulgarian bread.
IN VARNA YOU CAN EAT EVERYWHERE,ON RESTAURANTS,STREET VENDORS,FAST FOODS,
BECAUSE EVERYTHING IS CLEAN,NATURAL 100%
DON'T WARRY EAT WHEREVER YOU WISH.
Favorite Dish: ALSO YOU CAN FIND ALL KIND OF LOCAL & INTERNATIONAL FOODS.
LOT OF CUISINES.
or smth like that :D
Lovely interieur:), the menu is lovely as well, but I can't say that it's various...... We've been there 3 times and I can say that I've tried almost everything :D
The basics are: meat in different variations (kebab,pork etc ), vegetables: tomatoes, cucumbers in different salads, which were actually the same, but had different names....lol
I know, it's the most EXTRAORDINARY tip I've chosen....lol :D
But the funniest thing is that , everything is written in cyrillic.....and it's not that cyrillic for I see it here in Moscow, but cyrillic in BULGARIAN!!!!!!!!!!! Soooooooooo weird! :D
Favorite Dish: lol
Waiters and waitresses are "Chandler", "Ross", "Joey" and "Monica with "Rache"...... Weird, isn't it? But I liked the idea! ;-)
Favorite Dish: They make YUMMY pizza there.
One day, my parents and I took 4 big pizzas there and ate them all:)))))))))) The waitress had her jawl on the floor :D
the nicest pizzas in Varna, very big and delicious salads, good service and the most important - CHEAP!!!
Favorite Dish: Godzilla salad is great andyou will love all the pizzas. There is a dessert with jogurt and jam or honey.
Again typical Mehana with real Bulgarian athmosphere, professional service and excellent food. If you come here once, you'll come back for more!
Favorite Dish: They serve every national dishes, try to order something from "skara" - grill, don't forget to order a refreshing salat, also vegetarians can find something for themselves (see my Bulgarian Cuisine travelogue at my Bulgaria page).
Like all typical Mehana's (traditional Bulgarian restaurant) also this one is built in Bulgarian national revival period architecture style. They serve very tasty traditional food for more then resonable prices.
Different tipes of dishes from all the world around.
The special dishes are from the Bulgarien and Turkish dishes.
Favorite Dish: Meat and Fish in different cooking types.
A lot of vegetation ( eggplant, tomato ) dishes
