Great food. Great service - even managed to fit us in despite major electrical storm forcing everyone indoors resulting in lack of tables. Wine selection is extensive and desserts are a real treat.

Wonderful service, smiling staff! We had great time with friends there. There are a lot of Bulgarian dishes with a twist. Beautiful experience. Plovdiv is my hometown and I always recommend the restaurant to people who are visiting for the first time.

Food was very tasty and the service good, but the Mojito was terribly bad. Have had a couple of Mojitos in Cuba and the one served in Plovdiv Hemingway was a watery inpersonator of the original one. Didn't taste anything and cannot be recommended.

We read good reviews about the place, so went to try it out at our first (so far only) evening in Plovdiv. The place was nice, warm and cozy and normally it would be ''my kind of place'' in regards interiors, atmosphere (life pianist performing, nice selections of wines tucked around the walls and place, very lovely interiors) as well...

Nice restaurant in the center of Plovdiv. Very wide menu and wine choice. Absolutely not expensive and good service. Live music soft and not annoying. Looks like it is difficult to eat outside without reservation. Another positive side is that smoking is forbidden inside (at least in the main hall).

Haven't been there for quite a while but was nicely surprised that the impression from last visit is still valid. Perfect service, waiter with a smile and new dishes. The renovated garden is nice and cosy, makes you feel the heart of the city, a bit like Paris cafés. The new steaks on lava stone are a must!

First of all It was the first time that the waiter had a smile on his face after seeing that I didt speak Bulgarian... in all the other restaurants I have been they were quite rude!
