Nice food and great location.

Great location. 2min walk from the Singing Fountains. Cosy atmosphere and friendly staff. Delicious Mediterranean food and reasonable prices. The only downside was the toilette; just one unisex box.

We went there for dinner around 10PM. We ordered 1 salad, 1 main course (chicken with goat cheese), bruschettas, Creme brulée and 2 beers. Salad: I'm not a cook but I can definitely do the same at home, tasteless, the worst lettuce you can find in Bulgarian, so of course you can't have a good salad with bad ingredients. Chicken:...

Nice place in the center of the city. The staff was very polite and well manered, also if you need some advice with the menu selection. The food was more or less ok, I expected a little bit more.

Obviously one of Plovdiv's top restaurants, but not snooty or snobbish. An outside table was well worth the wait. Modern, international menu with a Bulgarian touch. Good food, reasonable prices considering the standard, competent service. Interesting wine list - a decent selection of half bottles is a plus.

Great restaurant in the centre of Plovdiv, food is really good with interesting twists using in season local produce. Definately worth visiting, I went twice in the 4 days I spent in Plovdiv. Contrary to comments by other reviewers I found the service to be fine, the waiter even recommended changing our choice of fish course, as it would be... More

I went for an early dinner and ordered the duck with caramelised pears, walnuts, honey and cinnamon. And this is what I got there was no veg or anything else and the duck itself was fine. My issue with this place was the service. It was early about 7 and the restaurant was not particularly busy for the number of... More

I visited Hemingway on a Saturday lunchtime with friends. By luck managed to get a table as it was VERY busy. And rightly so, the food was good and a great selection of wine. A lovely outdoor area.

I'm originally from Plovdiv so I came to Hemingway when it was first opened and again through the years. The latest menu sounds good but is so poorly executed that you're better off eating at a fast food restaurant. Salads are boring and flavorless, dishes are overcooked or inderseasoned...whatever your cooking skills you can make better at home.

Really lovely atmosphere in this restaurant, sweet personel with good advice on dine and wine. I had the Caesar salad which was perfect, fresh and nicely dressed up. After this i had the chicken filet with a waldorf salad, the salad was soooooo good!!! Not to sweet, not to sour, just perfect. My company had the tomato soup and duck... More
