Wonderful place near Sofia

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 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.

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.

The restaurant is in Pancharevo, a suburb of Sofia a short drive from the city, and is located on a large terrace overlooking the big water reservoir and the beautiful mountain on the other side. Perfect for a summer evening alfresco. Inside it is more formal - after being recently refurbished in slightly Asian style. Service was great, attentive and... More

Lebed is outside of the city centre, so we do not go there very often, but it is a treat if you have guests or just somebody you want to treat, a birthday to celebrate etc: food is good, the location is really nice, service is fine, wine list good.

Lebed Restaurant sits on the edge of a lovely lake in the hills close to Sofia. By taxi it is about a 15 – 20 minute drive, and well worth the journey, especially as taxis are not that expensive. It is a large restaurant, but carefully designed so that you are not conscious of there being a lot of other... More
