Pleasant terrace, good food

The stylish terrace is just right for a summer lunch. Good food - nothing exceptional, but well prepared and presented. Service was a bit slower and more erratic than it should be at a fairly upmarket restaurant like this one.

Lovely local wines. Fresh food and produce. Great location and decor. However service needs improving - I was still eating in my starter and my main was brought out and left on the table. I had to switch out the plates myself. Very embarrassing. Main was then luke warm when I got to it. This practice leaves no time between... More

Terrible pasta that was probably forgotten and brought to us half an hour later... Totally disappointed- I came after reading other reviews but it is totally not worth it

This is a nice restaurant with a few tables of outside seating that is worth visiting after a long walk through the old city.

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.
