What a great dining experience we had at this place. The restaurant is about ten miles outside Sophia on a lovely tranquil lake. We visited in December, but I can imagine how things would be in spring and summer. My son had lamb steak with roast potatoes and the usual veg and I had an amazing... read more

Perfect restaurant. I visited this restaurant 3-4 times for last 3 years. It is perfect. Food and services is amazing. Atmosphere is very, very good. Near to Sofia and situated on Pancharevo lake. Amazing for business and family meetings.

The service is good but the food is below standard and served cold. I also have my doubts on the quality and freshness to big menu.

Exquisite cuisine in a wonderful setting by the lake. Interior is also quite nice. Services are excellent. The only downside are prices, which are quite high.

The Lebed (Swan) restaurant looks rather luxurious from the outside, and a lot of effort hs been put into the interiors. Given the lakeside location, I was looking forward to a nice family birthday celebration. Furthermore, the prices are roughly double the average price for a meal in a restaurant in Bulgaria. How disappointed was I, however, to discover the... More

It is Ok. I wasn't very pleased with the food. Nice location though. It has a parking lot, which is nice.

Beautiful view and good food but overpriced. I recommend to try it out in spring or summer but it's not a place I would go often. It's a place to go one or two times I guess just for the view. I liked it cause I think is kind of a romantic place.

This restaurant has a good view. But food is average or below. It suggests beautiful pictures of various foods in menu, but actual food served is quite different from the pictures in menu. Service is also not so good, either. Place to see views, but not place for foods at all.
