Well prepared dishes, good vine and nice people. Romantic atmosphere. Don’t miss the Special Rakija (tastes a little bit like a good Cognac). Our preferred restaurants in Plovdiv.

The restaurant is perfectly located. It looks high level one, but the experience is worth. The food is high quality, and really tasty, however, the portions are very small. The staff is polite, and in general, a good experience.

The best food I have eaten during my whole stay In Bulgaria (14 days). They don’t have this usual miles long menu and so can focus on refining their dishes. Everything was delicious ( especially the mango duck)

I've been there two times. Once in 2019, and once again in 2020, July. Traditional bulgarian restauraunt. I love this bulgarian food. The name of the restaraunt is named on the old name of the town. Also the location of the restaraunt is very romantic...(old town), there is also many, many things you can see near to the restaraunt like Art Gallery, museums, wonderfull views of Plovdiv, etc. I definetly will visit once again this place.More

I visited the restaurant for the first time in August 2020 and I was left with great impression from it. The food and the atmosphere in the garden were really good. We decided to return to Plovdiv especially for this restaurant, as we had a...great occasion to celebrate. We organized our whole trip to the town, revolving around our dinner in this restaurant. Again the experience was extraordinary, the food was really delicious and pleasingly plated. The staff was helpful, kind and assisting.More

After viewing the Art Gallery Philippopolis in the old town of Plovdiv, we entered the restaurant in the cellar level. we only expected a more simple place to eat, but to our great surprise it is the most wonderful and romantic restaurant with excellent food...and wine with a top class service. Can only recommend if you are in Plovdiv - dont miss that great restaurant.More

This garden- restaurant is in the beautiful old town of Plovdiv. The meals are really tasty, the service ok. The minus point is ,eventhough they claim in their website they are open until 12 midnight , at 11 pm they come and tell you to...leave because they restaurant will close in 5 minutes.More

The dishes were delicious and artfully arranged. A great dining experience. Even in these generally touristless Covid times, the restaurant was quite full.

Philipopolis' profile is highly uneven.On the positive side are the setting, the pleasant terrace and the old fashioned, warm and pleasantly furnished restaurant as well as the upscale table setting and presentation of dishes.On the negative side was the inattentive, inefficient, insufficient and unprofessional service....Finally, the food was OK, even if slightly overpriced. In sum, it is highly recommended for those who, like us, are also concerned about the setting of their meal. For them, Philipopolis is a rare and most pleasant option.More

We visit every year this restaurant for lunch on our way to the Black sea. This year again we were not disappointed and enjoyed very much the food, the atmosphere and the service. Try the octopus and the white Mavrud, excellent choice. The music on...the terrace was amazing, some Italian from the 50s. I also recommend visiting the art gallery in the old house, as well as the apartment on the second floor which is a museum, you won't be disappointed. Overall, a great experience again.More
