Impressed by the level of this restaurant. It is not one of the standard and mediocre proposing the Bulgarian taste. This is different. Pretty modern design with a menu touching different parts of the Bulgarian cuisine, still traditional but with an innovative touch. The staff...More

To be honest: would not return unless someone specifically insists on celebrationing an occasion here. Wine selection is impressive, found a nice bottle of Chablis (around 120 for the bottle). Salads were nothing special, had the pear salad - dressing dreadful, pears -meh, won't repeat....More

Their origin story in the center of each table is very detailed, and the thoughtfulness shows in the food. From amuse bouche delivered by a chef in an eye panel to the delicious courses and attentive service - you’ll have fun in the Cosmos!

Recommended by my Airbnb host, dinner here was definitely one of the highlights of my Sofia visit. I had the 6-course tasting menu with fish and meat, which I enjoyed thoroughly. Highly recommend this place.

I usually plan on around 25-30 EUR per person for a nice long dinner with desserts and plenty of nice wine. But that's a very relaxed budget there and I think 15-20 EUR would still be a nice experience. For vegetarians, I... More

Creating experiences, where local flavours, imaginative techniques, cosmic inspiration and our vision of the future meet. At Cosmos we create what we like to call 'traditional space cuisine' - blending traditional ingredients from our culture with our knowledge and imagination, and adding our biggest inspiration - space, together with its mesmerising geometry, unexpected colourful bursts, and the harmony in its vastness. And all of this we seek to reflect in our dishes. You can visit us for lunch or dinner, or simply stop by for an afternoon dessert and coffee. We also recommend you try our cosmic cocktails. Of course, if cocktails are not your thing, we offer a wide selection of wines, and we can also organize a special wine tasting of Bulgarian wines for you. Just call, send us an email or simply stop by.
