The restaurant is good, most of their meals are delicious and well prepared, but there are some issues with the service going on for quite some time.

found this place close to our guesthouse. Lovely atmosphere, although quiet as we got there late on a sunday evening. Very attentive friendly staff, food was great and reasonably priced. The place was nicely decorated, and attention to detail is great (candles, flowers, everything nicely...done and very clean). Would definitely recommend.More

Thank you for the great service. Delicious food and pleasant ambiance! If I have to give any constructive criticism - one of your staff members, a girl, was dressed slightly less appropriate for my taste. The image of the restaurant predisposes for a more formal...and professional dress code. Over all great, just one star down.More

We found Raia via tripadvisor and thought we'd give it a try as we were nearby. What a find, fantastic food, lovely wine and great service for a very reasonable price. Food was well prepared and beautifully presented. Nice touch at the end when ordered...a brandy and was provided with an additional glass to warm it. Would definitely recommend to anyone visiting Plovdiv.More

Atanas was our waiter, who was extremely able & willing to translate the dishes on offer on the menu. He also helped to recommend their signature dishes which the restaurant does best. The food was excellent. We shared a starter of tomato salad, We had...the pork ribs which was tender and falling off the bone. We also had the king prawn tagliatelle, which was al dente with a tomato based sauce, also delicious. Atanas recommended the dessert which was called Bulgarian cake that was served as 3 balls (like ice cream scoops). This had the flavour and texture of a tiramisu, and was delicious. The whole meal, including 2 glasses red wine, came to just 39 Leva, and Atanas enthusiastically went through the itemised bill for us as it was written in Bulgarian. Such service! Please try this restaurant if you want good Bulgarian cooking in a reasonable price range, and great serviceMore
