We dined at this restaurant on April 14 and were disappointed with several items. Service was perfunctory and the portions very small by Bulgarian standards. The waiter did suggest a good wine and to be fair the restaurant was very busy with several large groups. The total cost of the meal was double that of several other restaurants visited in... More

We found this restaurant on TripAdvisor, and were very happy that we did! The food was good, and the atmosphere was charming. I would recommend getting a reservation, as we had to squeeze 9 at our table for 7 without one.

Our waiter was by far the rudest man I have encountered thus far in my travels; when we tried to order a Mojito, we were rudely told "No...we don't have these" (odd considering the name of the restaurant is Hemingway). When I asked for a few of the meat dishes, these weren't available either (and these were some of the... More

If you like your decor dark and crowded-its for you. If you prefer your food too salty- enjoy it. If you want to pretend you know good food- you will like it. Overpriced for the quality. Just like the city's mayor- who we bumped in to the two times we visited. Not a bad place if no other option available.

My favourite restaurant in Bulgaria! I've been there many times, basically each time I went to Plovdiv. I loved the food, the staff, sitting outside in cosy chairs or inside enjoying the decorations and the wine bar. Everyone can choose for the menu (though it might take some time because everything sounds delicious) and the atmosphere in very nice. And... More

Wonderful atmosphere, exceptional food, qualified service and rich wine selection. Do not miss to visit and do not miss to make a reservation first. The place is for a reason always busy and fully booked. Some of the choices you will never regret making will be the goose liver, the pork cutlet with parmesan ice cream, ember-roasted lamb cutlets, chocolate... More

The atmosphere of the restaurant is relaxing, they played nice chillout music while we were there. No idea if that is usual. I particularly liked the aubergine, red&green peppers salad that comes with bruscetti and a qatip dip (not sure if it was qatiq or something similar to it). The creme brulee with peaches was great as well. We had... More
