The food was no more than OK, the prices are also "ok". People recommended me to go there, but I wouldn't go back there probably. They have no WiFi and the staff was cold as ice. The restaurant was empty and I sat on a sofa. So they asked me to move to a table with a chair because "this... More

We had lunch several times. The restaurant is very big, in the city center, well decorated, fast and polite staff. There is also an open air room for smokers. Excellent quality and taste for it's prices. You can try whatever you like with no worries about how much you will pay. Although it is cheap you can have a very... More

Too much time waiting to order and to pay... bad attitude and behaviour just because they thought there wouldn't be any tip from us. Possibly no respect to tourists!!

Great food but who cares?! We waited 30 minutes for the waitress to come take our order for dessert. From the moment we switched tables because we were cold an went to the other side of the restaurant, the waiters acted all angry. Then we waited around 15 minutes for our change--and it came back in coins. All coins. Two... More

Variation is not the game here, it's all about price and quality. Meatballs, kebapche, hearty soups and some traditional Bulgarian sides. Most dishes are traditional and certainly worth trying. I would recommend the Divaka Soup and some meat alongside it. To give you an idea of price for those who desire something more precise, me and two friends had: Two... More

Divaka is one of those places where you go when you can't think of anywhere else, but don't regret your choice in the end. The food is tasty enough and very reasonably priced. They don't have that many options, but you can definitely find something you like. It's open late and I have been here after a night out with... More

The portions are good and since we were 5 people we ordered a variety of dishes to give it a try...all lacked a bit... More

First impression about the place is sort of FastFood like cause of interior design . However on terrace you find nice places to sit down and enjoy. Service is average and some of the waiters don't speak English at all. I recommend Divaka soup. Chicken soup which is served inside the bread. Also chicken wings in garlic sauce are worth... More

I've been to Divake two times. It does not really matter how good the food is or how fancy the restaurant decor is, if the service is terrible. Customer service at Divaka is very bad.I will never come back.

Good selection of food and good service. Great place to find good home style balkan food. The only place in Sofia where I managed to get my soup served hot! Great selection of wines too.. Worth a visit when in Sofia.
