Generally not bad to visit for business lunch, having diversified lunch dailies. Above that interior is simply funny. Table arrangement reassembles fast food - no private space, all visitors form a small community. Outside sitting is not the most pleasant one. Service got much better - would even call it professional at the moment. Food is basically good, though if... More

Friendly service and very tasty food. Perfect location in the city center, with summer garden and located inside a famous park which at night hosts variety of young people drinking beer and having fun.

Maraia fusion is good place to visit... as far as atmosphere and service. Not something extraordinary if you are expecting this. They have three menus: one with health food, one classical menu and one with sushi and Japanese dishes. Sushi and Japanese : for sure they don't have any idea how this should be cooked. The classical menu: tuna steak:... More

I love to go there for lunch. In the heart of the city center, convenient location, nice atmosphere and perfect service. All waiters are well-trained, but Boris is our favorite. My most favorite part is that they have healthy menu, I am able to eat gluten-free desserts there!

The food was okay, but we expected more food for the price. My husband ordered the traditional Bulgarian salad and it was good. I felt that the price of the food didn't match the quantity. After we paid the bill they gave us a 20% off coupon for our next take-away food although we didn't use it (we were leaving... More

Went for dinner here on a business trip. Good food for a reasonable price. I also like the fact that they have a garden where you can sit and have dinner.

I've eaten here on two visits with business colleagues, it's somewhere we all agree that we like visiting. We have never tried the sushi but the steaks served are excellent. Bright well lit, open restaurant that belies the plain exterior. No doubt i'll be back again when visiting next time

A nice and spacious restaurant in the very centre of Sofia, Bulgaria. Good and diverse cuisine, from sushis to BBQ, fish and different types of meat - everything from classic to modern and exotic. Many sorts and very good quality of brandy, buth the wine was a little bit simple. Dishes well presented but the service was slightly chaotic. Prices... More

From the outside you will not be able to judge the interiore, there were some construction works at the time of our visit, so I was not impressed. Inside is another matter, very classy and chic. The service was ok, the menu - great and the food - delicious. There was a healthy choice menu with calories of each meal... More
