“Superb Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

Whilst staying in the nearby Maxi Park Hotel on business. I went for a walk into the Student district looking for somewhere to eat. I happened across this place. Wow what a find! The food here is sublime and excellent value probably the best meal I have eaten in a very long time. This is 1 place not to miss. The portions are huge and service faultless. Next time in Sofia this will be my 1st port of call.

“The best BBQ in Sofia”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

One of the best places I have been in Sofia within the last 1-2 years.
The food is so delicious, and the portions are quite big. The Elder syrup is wonderful - one should try it indeed.

“A legendary BBQ establishment”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013 via mobile

Life is good Skara Bar. It is the perfect place to meet friends, eat good food and enjoy good wine.
Ask for the home selection of rakia and wine. Staff is extremely nice and polite.

“Unique Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

This place has huge portions of Bulgarian foods that is very reasonably priced. The place itself is extremly unique with many decorations on the walls. There are actually two Skara Bars, however they are both very popular and become very busy during the lunch and dinner hours. I would recommend getting a reservation.
