Good place for a decent meal!

Prices and service are really good. Menu in english also and food is, a bit of classical restaurant type, but it is great value for your money. There are divided sections for smokers and non-smokers. Do recommend for a good launch.

That first evening in Sofia, it was the best way to start an "escape" from everyday life and taste and drink without thinking... I spent 4 days in Sofia, I visited the restaurant twice, and I did not regret it. Many choices, really good food and great place especially the one near Vitosha Blv.

if you are hungry any time, you should visit this place. Its very cheap and with big portions of food. I would recommend chicken wings. Also try the different types of sauces they have!

I like this place, especially when hungry - it has huge 0.5kg and 1kg portions, a great garlic appetizer ("chesnova razyadka") and the best of the best - soup inside bread (something you really need to try if you haven't). Totally awesome food, good service and atmosphere, not expensive for its location and quality, works 24/7... However, keep in mind... More

Divaka is my families favorite restaurant whilst visiting Sofia. With Bulgarian ancestry on my fathers side there is always an eye for authenticity with Bulgarian food and Divaka does not dissapoint. I have stayed in Sofia many times over the past 10 years and always try to visit when i'm in town. The food is consistently good with nice variety... More

Divaka is a traditional Bulgarian restaurant where we eat every time we are in Sofia. The food is great, the staff is very helpful, the food is good and the prices are very reasonable.

This is one of the nicest places to eat in Sofia in a very casual and friendly atmosphere. It is actually more of a tavern than a restaurant (in Bulgarian they use the word kruchma, which is something like a pub). The food is quite good and creative; you can try a lot of traditional Bulgarian and other Central and... More

The food is not bad. Something more than a fast food. Recommended for quick lunches

I was traveling with a friend of mine in December and we stopped in at Divaka based on local recommendations. The food was very good (we had soup, a meat plate and fries and a couple of beers), but the service was not so great. We did not have a reservation (which I would highly recommend people make), so when... More

Divaka actually now has 3 locations in central Sofia, all within walking distance of each other and right in the middle of the center of the city. All 3 have the same menu and while the food comes out of the freezer via the microwave, the places are extremely popular with Sofia's students and young professionals and are always packed.... More
