With a large party for lunch

Food good if service a little slow. Tried again a week later for dinner and could not get in because so many locals there! Very central and worth going if you are in Plovdiv. Menu choice large, but surely also many customers.

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

Classy restaurant but still very cozy. They have wide variety of different dishes. My experience with spicy shrimps as a starter was a nice surprise. Making expectations of mail course big. Jack Daniels veal steak. Juicy, soft and tender seasoned with sauce of a good old friend Jack Daniels and flavorfuly mashed sweet potatoes. Sublime. Divine. Simply The Best steak... More

Very bust restaurant. Huge menu choices. I ordered veal tartare with Worcestershire sauce. Very nice. My three companions also really enjoyed their meals. Service was mostly efficient with just the odd need to call staff over. Too hot and tired after long walk for three courses but really good food. Caution, might need to book at busy times, but well... More

I recently visited Hemingway for the 6th time this time with a group of friends for a pre wedding meal. The atmosphere is trendy/chic casual and the menu has a much wider variety of flavors than the majority of Bulgarian restaurant. I took the opportunity to have a steak, that was cooked precisely to order. This is one of the... More

Certainly my favorite restaurant in Plovdiv. Good food and excellent staff. You won't regret coming here. Do call in advance since it is fully booked most of the evenings.
