I have been here 2 times and the food was just the best I have eaten in my 2 week vacation in Plovediv. Tip: my brother had an insect in his porchini so please better wash it but the taste was 5 star worth it.

I've been searching for a tranquil place to stay and take lunch, but it didn't feet my expectations: the place is nice, but noise pollution is coming from the roads near by. Otherwise, you can enjoy a meal, with a nice chocolate soufflé.

We popped here to have a drink and then we returned for dinner. Both times we sat outside on the terrace which is a nice setting with a view over the rooftops of Plovdiv. We enjoyed very nice food: salads, foie gras, and also seafood. All was excellent. They have quite a big menu with barbecued meat, fish, pasta, traditional... More

Situated in the old city of Plovdiv this venue offers a peaceful outside garden overlooking the old town. Service is good and friendly with most staff being reasonable English speakers and the food is tasty and of good quality. Slightly pricy but this is more due to the location being in a tourist area. Good place to stop for a... More

Very nice Terrace, perfect for sunset drinks (try non-alcoholic ones too!). Sophisticated restaurant, gourmet style, great decor. Good service. Quiet and relaxing ambient. Worth a visit.

I was surprised at my experience after seeing the recent reviews on here. On the plus side, the ambience is perfect - great for a romantic meal with a lovely outdoor view. However, I would consider my food very bland, despite its alluring despcription. The price was somewhat on the expensive side too. As for service, it was impossible to... More

This is a good place for someone who is visited the Old Town of Plovdiv and want someone to service to him a special dessert! Very good creme brulee! :)

Second visit to Philipopolis restaurant after a gap of a year was a disappointment. Whilst the setting in the courtyard garden is still perfect and the waiting staff attentive, the quality of the food has really gone downhill. For example the local sirene (feta) cheese used in the salad was cheap, rubbery and pretty tasteless, completely different to the tangy,... More
