Cozy, boutique restaurant in the very heart of Sofia. The restaurant is located in a 3-floor house with a sunny and quite front garden. The menu is short, but each meal is carefully selected to meet the highest expectations for taste, creativity and presentation. Aubergine - Craft beer. Craft food. is the first and only restaurant in Bulgaria, that is paring its meals with local craft beers.

For me it was a welcome change from traditional Bulgarian food (that I love!). It was one of the best meals that I have had in Bulgaria. We had a tomato soup, shark and salad, and for dessert cheesecake. It was very tasty and delicious....I definitely will go back.More

I really liked their garden, feels homely with the local cat Garfield walking around. They have a good selection of beers and healthy meals ranging from vegetarian to sea food to meat. We tried the fish options and both were really good. Their cheesecake and...coffee were amazing as well. We also matched beers to our food, the good thing is menu guides you to pick your beer based on your meal choice. the place is great if you come as a couple or with your friends/colleagues, there are big tables too. The only thing is they can improve on hospitality - but in general it is a little bit of a problem in Sofia.More

Me and my SO a lovely stay in this true gem of a restaurant. Service is perfect, atmosphere is as we were staying with close friends. Food is top notch! No matter how hard I try - I am still left speechless when trying to...find just about anything negative about Aubergine. Be sure to try their tap beer! Keep up the good work and you will surely continue to stay above the rest in Bulgaria!More

This modest looking restaurant was a real surprise. The interior of the restaurant is clean and simple. The staff were extremely helpful when it came to selecting a wine for our meals. The pork shank and the pork belly were absolutely delicious, and we also...shared a delicate dessert, which we dont normally do. So grateful that we had an opportunity to dine here the night before the city closure.More

Well, we wish you can, but, since we're locals, we're pretty sure the fireworks are not visible from our location. Kind Regards!
