Because of it’s location, the restaurant has a really amazing almost 360 degrees view. You can reach it with a public transport and walking or with a car, but keep in mind the parking is expensive. You can go just for a coffee / fresh...orange juice or for a lunch / dinner. The price of the drinking menu is normal for it’s location. But the price of the food menu is expensive!More

Views awesome, location is walking distance from the Sofia Hilton hotel. Food order took a while to come and our group was not served together with some having mains and starter courses at different times. Selection of Italian cheese starter and pizza main course were...good and good value.More

The dishes was in the nothing special, I ordered Octopus it was a poor dish I hardly eat it, nobody asked why I did eat it nor ask to take it of from the bill. I returned a full disk without any comment from the...waiter. We sat in the second floor by ourselves, which was nice, however it was very difficult to have the waiter attention. For Sofia prices are high. However, since the place enjoys amazing view of the city I would recommend for drink or coffee.More

Great views but don’t bother to come for a meal! Suuuuuper slow service and terrible customer service! Dinner for 10 in their private area and dinner was 2h late! 2 people got their dinner and finished before the rest got their dinner! Didn’t even get...a discount and manager was inattentive! Come for a coffee max but not worth the meal!More

The view is the only thing good about this place. If you go there for food prepare to be dissatisfied, out of 10+ of us that ordered, a plain Pepperoni pizza was the only decent thing. Go got drinks and to take in the view,...keep your stomach and taste buds away from it, they'll thank youMore

Well I chose this place as one of the rooftops in Sofija. But now I don’t if there is a point in going to a rooftop in Sofija. The view of Sofija from bird perspective is not something special. It is very ordinary in term...of content. However, dining at rooftop always has it charm. The place is on the 24 floor so it is high. It’s ok, and during the working days they offer dishes by affordable prices. But otherwise it is pricey. The food is ok. I didn’t like the service.More

The waiters are slow, disrespectful, unhappy and just plain dumb. The food is terrible and takes 1 hour. The parking costs 3lv per hour.

There is nothing good about the restaurant. It pretends for high class or standards, but is far from this. Unprofessionally prepared food, bad service. The only thing the prices are justified for is the view to the Sofia city, but lets be honest, Sofia is...no Barcelona, and even from above the view is ugly!More

We were lucky enough to have a table available in the roof top. It is an amazing and very worth view over whole Sofia. It’s a bit pricy, but still I am very pleased that we decided to come here. 100% worthy!

For the prices they have you expect good service and nice products, but you receive tap water lemonade and rude waiters. We wait 10 minutes for menu FFS.

I had dinner at the view and was mesmerized by its view. Sadly it was freezing so I didn’t go outside on the balcony but under different weather conditions I can imagine it must be amazing, also during the day when one can see things...much better. Food was good and so was the service. The crowd was young and made the vitality and ambiance very nice. Only drawback is entering downstairs from the parking which is quite confusingMore
