It's really an amazing place to dine - french-style decoration, french music, kids corner, welcoming staff. The food was great, the service is absolutely fast, and the prices are more than acceptable for this type of atmosphere. It... More

Nicely decorated in Italian style with excellent selection of wines, kids area and a pastry shop with excellent service this place surprising with great atmosphere, however, the food ruined everything. If I have to describe it (food) with one word it will be average. We've been here several times and it seems that they changed the chef, because the food... More

Unexpected gem in the heart of Central Bulgaria. Top service, excellent food, friendly staff, cosy atmosphere, and very reasonable prices. I would recommend the National Restaurant to any one visiting the area.

Garden dining in the summer is definitely the best in the town. During winter enjoy the chic italianesque interior. Comprehensive wine menu from Bulgaria and a few international wines. English menu. Italian and Bulgarian foods. Great if limited amount of deserts.

I have visited this restaurant several times and has been always a nice experience. Lovely ambiance, this place has a nice romantic atmosphere. The garden is very pretty. The food is fantastic eventraditonal dishes like beans cooked in ceramic pot or the tomato salad with eggplant patè. Why cant I find restaurants like that in Plovdiv?
