A fine place to relax

This is one of the nicer places to sit in the Old Town, set within the lovely covered garden of a historic house, and offers excellent traditional Bulgarian food like baked pork knuckle. Beware, however, that service can be slow.

Located in the Historical part of Old Plovdiv, Bulgaria the Philipopolis Restaurant has a spectacular view, coupled with good food and excellent service. We dined there on 6 May 2015. The food and service were both excellent. I had the grilled octopus which was spectacular. Evan, our waiter, assured that our dining experience was the best. Chef Anastas came out... More

It was a little noisy, because the restaurant is over a road and some drivers go too fast into the tunnel. The food was not a big thing.

I visited on a Saturday night, and was highly impressed by the service from our server, everything was correct and dirty dishes were cleared almost immediately. Also the food was very tasty and in generous portions!

We ate there on a Saturday night and there was a lot of bling on display - it felt like a place to go and be seen, rather than for two dusty and footsore travellers. The waiters were helpful and menus were available in English. We sat out on the terrace which was full of roses and smelt of jasmine... More

Located in the old town, the restaurant offers a good range of well presented dishes in a pleasant garden setting, with unobtrusive, efficient service.

The setting is great and they make good espresso and fresh juices. The view from the terrace is impressive. But the real treat is the Art Gallery on the second floor, if you did not see much of Bulgarian Paintings from the last century, here you can see very nice presentation. Very enjoyable experience. The Gallery guide was very sweet... More

It was lovely to have lunch at art cafe: the staff was friendly and fast, we eat quality food prepared with creativity. I've found the chicken fillet with figs very interesting and new to my taste (I am Italian). Salads are served in Bulgarian standard, imho very high, with special attention to used vegetables and the wine was very pleasing... More

We liked everything, a lovely setting with a traditional indoor dining area and more relaxed/casual terrace area with amazing views over Plovdiv. The menu is extensive, we had Pork fillet & Chicken dishes with side orders and beers, my son was eager to return as he hadn't exhausted all the dishes he liked the sound of on our first visit!...
