“Absolutely brilliant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

This would have to be the most obscurely located fish and seafood restaurant I have visited, but what an amazing experience.

The quality of the food, the amazing service and staff that know their seafood, and suggest the accompanyments, this was truly one of the best restaurantr experiences I have had the pleasure of going to.

My colleague and I loved it so much we went back, and he is not a person who likes seafood, so this is saying something.

“Smoking Allowed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012 via mobile

Food and service was good, however would not return due to the managements apparent disregard for the smoking law. This restaurant seems to think it is above the law and let's customers smoke within their facility. Pass!

“For a nice fish meal in Sofia”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

In the Sofia Kempiski hotel, the captain cook restaurant is a select place, cosy atmosphere, elegant decoration, gentle musical ambiance, and a large choice of sea foods and wines. But we also really appreciated an attentionnate service. A nice place to invite good friends.or your wife...We spend a good evening there.

“great restaurant and garden”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Octopus in Greek style is excellent. The garden where the terrace is is very silent and green and relaxing. Good tasty cookies are for free.
