This was our first visit to Modus, despite having lived in Bulgaria for 11 years. First impressions were good, the staff were welcoming, the general décor and atmosphere were modern and comfortable.

I think squarely this is the best, most sophisticated food in Varna. It is a small place near the Sea Garden, which has a cosy and relaxed ambience. Very nicely and tastefully furnished. You go in through the eponymous hotel's reception. The staff are all very professional and kind. The only downside is that it does not have a real... More

Food is great and I had a really nice waiter. Had a great time until I had to go to the counter to ask for my bill myself. Then the staff looked miserable... Barely polite and no smile at all... I thought I would still leave a good tip to encourage them but they seemed to not even care. I... More

Nice and straight forward menu. The servers were quite attentive and polite. Restaurant is a bit tight for space so privacy was a bit of an issue as i could hear what the other tables were talking about.

Everything was amazing! The waitress was fantastic; from helping my husband decide on which rakia (local brandy) to drink, to suggestions about what to order, she was ever present yet never there. The perfect server. The food was divine! We had salads and mains and only regret that we had no more space in our stomachs for dessert. The restaurant... More
