Art Caffee with Art Gallery

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... read 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!...

The restaurant, located in the old town, is very nice, and the staff speaks English. We ordered some grilled fish (sea bass and sea bream), and they came with grilled eggplant, peppers and a piece of potato. Very nice. Also the salad was great. One bad thing is that I also ordered garnish, baby potatoes with dill and rosemary (delicious)... More

The restaurant was very nice, also the service was excellent, but the manager was terrible in a way that you really can't imagine. He doesn't know any foreign language and if you want to ask him something my advice is to don't bodder because he can't tell you nothing. In two words he is VERY STUPID MAN.

Located in historical part of Plovdiv these restaurant offers elegant, but cozy interior and beautyful garden. Service is good and in the menue next to old classics you can find a lot of tempting fusion kitchen dishes. The true revelation was nugat ice-cream, definitley the best one I ever tasted, just amazing, much better than all the french ones I... More

We have been coming to Plovdiv at least twice a year since 2007, and have always made a point of having lunches at Philipopolis. The service has always been acceptable and the food excellent. No longer! We visited the restaurant over the Christmas period on a Saturday. There was only one other couple present, who left after one course. We... More

Romantic location in the Old Town of Plovdiv, wonderful view of the city, nice cocktails and don't miss the art gallery under the same name in the house!
