If you adore both El Caribe and Mediterranean but succeeded to be in Varna, Bulgaria, the magic EL KAPAN is opening its arms to hold you in an unforgettable hug. A large golden beach washed by the calm sea is smoothly passing to a vast...decking with numerous cosy tables under beads of countless light bulbs, offering enough place for eating and dancing. Parties may be on pause, but not in EL KAPAN!
The menu is rich of tastes from both old and new worlds and features essential-feeling delicious dishes found across cultures, made with Mediterranean and Caribbean ingredients that El Kapan wanted to spotlight and demystify for a broad audience. You may taste local produce of finest quality, fresh mussels and fish brought directly from the sea just hours before being served to you. Traditional recipes are reimagined, imported delicacies live happily with local gems in large and nice looking dishes. Service is impeccable and consistent. Prices are pretty moderate for Bulgaria and much cheaper then in Europe. A reservation is advisable but the owners are so nice that no one will be left outside. It is the tastiest place in my home town and the unique COVID answer to my insatiable hunger for travelling offering the atmosphere and food from three worlds. Do not miss. Will heavily return!More

we had lunch on the beach at El Kapan in a lovely sunny June middle of the week. their fusion cuisine offers dishes that are quite different (in a good way :-) )than what we experienced in the other restaurants. The waiter's recommendations were very...good. We had the fish soup, sea food saganaki, and sea food risotto. All of them were excellent. if i were to pick one that i liked most, i would say the risotto was top notch. of our 4 days stay in Balchik/Kavarna/Varna, El Kapan had by far the tastiest food. not to mention the view as well...More

Despite the location right on the seafront this restaurant offers really good food and, thanks to Covid, was v quiet when we visited. Sea bass - fillet and roasted - served with roasted potatoes and ratatouille were so good we ordered a 2nd helping. Around...£10 for a main course, side and drink....considering the location, pretty good value. Only area for improvement?....waiting staff were not quite so friendly as other restaurants visited.More

I want to thank the restaurant for the amazing dinner we had. We went for just a snack but we are glad we stayed for dinner. Fantastic view by the see and it was spotless clean despite the fact the beach is in front of...you. The people there were very kind and helpful. The food turned out great, good portions and amazing quality for the price we paid. We will visit it again soon for sure. Big thanks to the hostess who found us a great table. If you are near Varna - visit the place!More
