I personally take the Serbian meatballs each time - they are fabulous. The restaurant is very nice with a few tables outside. The service is quite fine. I like the location and the ambiance inside. Just another decent restaurant for a nice lunch/dinner.

Italian owned and operated. Great steak and good wines. The garden is quite quaint and perfect on a warm evening.

A small restaurant in the best neighbourhood of Sofia. The wine list is very poor, with low quality and very expensive wines. I compare them with what you can drink in Italy, France and Spain. We took white sangria, which was not exactly sangria, but was enough good. The food choice was not big. Some of the dishes were good... More

At the time we visited the restaurant was in transition - in ownership and in chefs. The atmosphere is nice and cosy. The staff are warm, friendly and really doing their best to make your experience as nice as possible.The menu is mostly European dishes with somewhat stronger German input. For us the choice was limited in spite of the... More

My husband and I chose this restaurant based on the Trip Advisor reviews and were not disappointed. It is not michelin star gourmet food - but it is good quality fresh food, at a great price. The price cannot be argued with - we had one beer, a bottle of prosecco, water, two main courses (Salmon and Veal), bread and... More

Just arrived and first night out. We selected Bistro Landau, from the TripAdvisor listings, for being the #2 rank. And its indeed a well deserved ranking. However, if the wish to climb to #1...there are a few things they need to work out. The location its excellent, fancy neighborhood, right behind what seems to be a residence, easy to reach... More

Having eaten here four or five times, this is fast becoming my favourite restaurant in Sofia. Bistro Landau serves fabulous home cooking in a cosy and relaxed setting. It also offers free Wi-Fi (very welcome). The menu is creative, and offers plenty of variety. My lunch today included a bowl of Tarator soup (delicious), and a cheese and tomato omelette... More

A very special place! A home like atmosphere, very good food, and great service! The owner is serving everything itself, and he is a really charming person. A great place for a great evening!

After read all the reviews I was with good expectation regarding this place, however it was a disappointment. the owner was very sympathetic and attentioned, but the environment and the food wad nothing special! Good for an ordinary dinner, not if you look for something special. Price was ok.

Lovely restaurant in central Sofia with decent, reasonably-priced food and wine. The waiter (or owner?) was very friendly and helpful. We'll visit again if we go back to Sofia!
