We ate here last year just before we went back to US and now we're back, the first thought was, we had to dine here first. We knew their Pork Knuckle was really good but it had to be pre-ordered. So we did that, placed...More

The restaurant has a rustic Balkan farm house decoration and the food is authentic, plentiful and very well prepared. Of course, Balkan cuisine is not for everyone, but if you like garlic and are looking for something different, you definitely don't want to miss the...More

I really like the set up. Its very nice for family gathering. The menu should have a bit more choices for people to select from instead of just meat dishes.

Having a dinner with my love here. Creamy mushroom soup is great! and also for Smoke salmon Caesar salad. However I don't like traditional sizzling plate (probably i'm too Malaysian).

The restaurant reflects a typical Bulgarian theme and layout where a cosy wooden bar on the mezzanine floor, stocks a variety of beverages – it is a great place to meet up with friends for drinks. The dining area in the lower level is a great setting for a truly romantic dinner with the area being separated into cosy nooks, with plenty of authentic Bulgarian knick-knacks, quaint wooden windows accented with lace curtains, and fireplaces. Making your way to the upper floor leads you to the function room. The Bulgarian theme is maintained by way of a countryside mural that stretches along the length of the room. This room also has a bar area and can be booked for private functions. Vintage Bulgaria Restaurant & Bar is proudly owned by a Bulgarian family living in Penang.
