I went to this restaurant as they had an offer 2 course meal for 20Lev. I had carbonara to start. Honestly The best carbonara I have ever tasted. I enjoyed it so much that it needed a review. Very nice with everything else I had.

This place has a really unfair position on trip advisor. We tried almost all places in the first positions but they were rather disappointing. Food here was really good, probably the best we tried in Borovetz, the place is cosy and nice and the staff really polite.

We spent a weekend in Borovets and we visited The Blue 2 times for a lunch and once for a dinner. We chose it mainly because of the lower prices, but the food is also good enough. Don't miss to try the Turkish bread (it is huge), homemade fried potatoes the region is famous with (they are more delicious than... More

My kids love this place. The decor is interesting - supposed to be "funky" - swirly paint on a red / purple / mauve theme. Waitress was very friendly and couldn't do enough. The food is quite good too. A great place to eat when the place is busy with a better atmosphere, but it can be a little dreary... More

Group of 3 for steaks on the last day of our holiday. The menu said (implied see below) the steaks were 18oz and I thought "that is far too large, I will never eat that ! " so my partner and I opted to share Bulgarian Mixed Grill whilst our friend went for a steak. The steak was (from memory)... More

If I was reviewing on food alone, I'd give 4 stars - tasty and plentiful at a reasonable price but.... How the friendly welcome changes when there is a problem. Like a previous reviewer, one meal was not served and the waiter/manager/owner/whatever was unbelievably rude and aggressive when challenged. He was thoroughly unpleasant, unprofessional and didn't give a damn about... More

The sign said "All our customers recommend us". Sadly that was not the case. We visited the restaurant twice and what a difference a day makes when poor customer service is involved. The first night was good for Borovets standards. Flavoured foods, all round reasonable meals. We reserved a table for the following day and left a 20 Lev deposit.... More

The toilet is interesting, the place is clean, the art work infantile (in a Picasso sense), and the food is well - wanting. I always think I am going to have a better time here than I do. The food is just standard and the piped Italian music doesn't help them. It is okay, but nothing more.
