This place feels like home and the owner/chef makes all the difference, walking around the tables and making sure each guest gets the right attention. I was made to feel very indulged by the well trained waiters. I was also surprised to find out that the products are of highest quality, since the chef takes great care of finding his... More

Great service, great food, really great people. I've been there twice for a business meeting. Very extensive winelist mainly with Bulgarian wine, but also some labels from all over Europe.

I am a reasonable person, taking action only in extreme circumstances, which I am doing now. Plenty of Bulgarian restaurants offer tasteful food and it's a pity that every now and then some place becomes the exception. First of all, beware of you families with children. Soon after I finished eating, some painful blisters came out on my tongue. "Fresh... More

The first night we ate at Bistro Europe, Phillip came over to the table to personally meet us and suggest meals and wine selections. He was so friendly and welcoming and was very helpful in choosing our meals. The mussels were the best we have ate anywhere in the world, and was a huge bowl for a very reasonable price... More

Excellent food, friendly service. The onion soup and the mussels are a must, but don't hesitate to drop in for breakfast or coffee during the day. Do not miss out on the deserts.

I spent one week in Varna and went there...3 times. Everything is tasty, fish, meat, salad. And Philippe, the owner, has the mindset 'customer first', which is very rare nowadays. You add to this the strategic location of the restaurant (downtown Varna in a pedestrianized area) and your dream becomes reality. I recommend the walnut liqueur as digestif.
