Divaka 2

Location and contact

Excellent food at reasonable prices. That is the dream behind Divaka, which runs 3 restaurants in the heart of Sofia downtown. Perhaps the best way to taste traditional Bulgarian food is to get someone’s grandmother to invite you over for dinner, but trust us – the next best thing is to try Divaka The restaurants are unpretentious and relaxed, offering the best of the genuine Bulgarian hospitality.

This was just around the corner from Halbite which hadn't lived up to expectations. Service here initially was a little bit grumpy but improved during our meal. Our starters were lovely however the french fries to accompany my main course also suddenly appeared as we...More

Went to Divaka for a friends reunion. Have to say I wasn't very impressed. Menu was extremely large meaning that most food must be frozen instead of fresh. Most food was just average but my friends chicken wings were just plain nasty. Atmosphere was just...More

As the other Divaka, this one offers rich food menu and local beer and drinks. The garden is very cool.

We visited this restaurant on 01.01.19 and I would definitely not recommend anyone to eat there. Here are the reasons: 1. Re the service : the waitress was totally rude and unprofessional. She wasn't talking to us at all and she was just leaving the...More

This restaurant had good reviews and was fully booked, we were lucky to get a table. However, the staff doesn’t know how to smile and the food was mediocre at best. It’s all a bit bland, only lukewarm and just not very nice. I would...More

We enjoyed the food at another branch of Divaka so thought we'd try this one, too. I had the meze of meat served in a loaf, with fries and my partner chose a chicken dish. Both were delicious - the meze would probably have been...More

Cons: Not tons of tables. Aubergine main dish was overcooked and not particualrly well seasoned. Pros: Vegetarian friendly The spinnach main dish is something I strongly recommend. The cold starter meze with traditional katak was great, we want to try and make it at home....More

Decent service and average food quality, but still nothing major to complain about. I visit this place from time to time, and you can get a decent meal if you don't have big expectations. I can recommend their cream soup "Divaka", which is very well...More

Service at rimes very good, other times spotty, enjoyed the local ambience and food, we were generally only non-locals there, other Bulgarian folks also there. Take out, take away, delivery, sorta chain, several restaurants in other locations. It's good.
