Waiter constantly trying to pressure us to spend more money, and order things we didn't want, to replace our orders for the things we DID want! He totally put us off, and the whole thing had the opposite effect to what he intended, as he made us reluctant to spend any money in the establishment due to a complete lack... More

I ordered the following items: eggplant with tomatoes, beans, hot bread, chicken steak, hot peppers. The food was amazing, one of the best meals Ive ever had in my life. I hope I can find a recipe somewhere for the eggplant and beans. If I ever come back to Sofia Ill be heading straight to this place. The music was... More

Averige food with little bit higher prices than other places in Sofia. Waiter asked for tip before we were finished with food and when I asked do they have coffee: "this is not a coffee shop." I consider that the answer was little bit rude and anyways I would not visit this place again.

The whole 3 floors of the restaurants were full of smoke from the grill. The food was below the average considering the high prices for Bulgarian dishes. You can definitely find much better places to have a dinner.

I strongly recommend restaurant "Pri Yafata" in downtown Sofia. It is located in a beautiful neoclassical house just opposite the National Opera House. The food is great, the service is impeccable. Try it when you visit Sofia and you won't be mistaken :)

We have eaten here both in summer and now, autumn. We really enjoyed each meal. The salads are tremendous and main courses are very tasty. There is a good choice of beverage, and the service is good too. This is a place I will return to.

An excellent eating place to be recomended. We had a mixed grill of good quality meat and great variety. Quite a plate-full too! A free starter was unexpectedly provided. The wine was good and not at all expensive. Very good value for money all round. Friendly and attentive service. Not at all touristy, but the menue is available in English.

The restaurant is in downtown Sofia across the national Opera house. We made the reservation well ahead to make sure we have a table for a company of eight with the idea of experiencing the true bulgarian cuisine and folk program that the restaurant advertises. However , turned out that the same night which was Saturday there was no program... More

There were 6 of us, and based on a map picked up from the hotel, which stated the restaurant as Bulgarian Cuisine, we wanted to try it out for dinner It wasn't overly difficult to find from our hotel, the Radisson Blu. When we walked in, the person we went stated that he didn't speak English, and asked us to... More
