One of my favourite places for a good barbecue, nice and carefully designed interior, perfect location in the park and unforgettable apple rakia.

I was taken by a friend for a fish dish. We were not so lucky as the fish was not available. There was not a suitable drink with no added sugar and we asked for tap water as there was no tea served as well and we were refused. My first visit comes to be the last :)

The Skara Bar is one of the best BBQ places in Sofia. All meals they serve are home made! Also and Rakia ;)

This is one of the best BBQ meals and places in Sofia. They are also very open to preparing the order before hand and you can go and pick it up from the restaurant directly.

The Skara Bar offers a range of tasty, home prepared rustic classics, grilled to order. Quality of the ingredients is high and the atmosphere is unpretentious and relaxed. Service is quiet and unobtrusive. Worth a try.

Delicious! The kufteta are the way they are suppose to be- grand, juicy and well spiced! Also served the the classic Bulgaria sides. The service was real kind and timely, mind it we were there post the lunch rush. We also had the home made lemonade that's made with Djujan (a type of mint) and honey- real tasty! They don't...
