Description: These is one of two same named restaurants, both in Sofia, Bulgaria. The old and gorgous Red House is situated at 33, Parchevich Str. If you are one of those curious travellers who prefer to walk through smaller, narrow streets, you will hardly miss Chervenata Kashta (the Red House). It is indisputably a big red house, which stands out from the rest of the houses and buildings around it. It is one of the oldest preserved houses in Sofia, recognized as a cultural monument. During summer the garden of the Red House is simply fantastic! Luckily the tables are big enough, because it will not be easy to pick one dish only! The food is delicious and the menu is very rich. The Red House serves also pizza baked in a charcoal oven and many vegetarian dishes. There is a good selection of fresh fish to choose from. Everyweek (from 8 pm on) you can enjoy the delicious meals of the house while listening to live music - very 'live' and very entertaining because the performers are passionate proffessionals in a different styles of music. The Red House really wants you to feel as relaxed as at home...And loves the little ones too! In fact they have a small 'children's restaurant' where the kids can play, draw and socialize.

“The customer is always right? Not here!”
Reviewed July 28, 2014

On the third floor, after a very steep stairs there is a hall for families with small children. The game room for children next door. The restaurant offers a childminder (2 euro per hour) which is very convenient. Unfortunately, the room is small and 5 children are a problem anymore. The stairs are very steep and very difficult to climb a baby-carriage above. The waiter serving this hall sees customers as intruders. No smile, frown and stern look. I asked for a salad of tomatoes, roasted peppers, cheese, red onions and olives, but did not get because “not available in menu”. The food is delicious, but expensive for such service.
How to go back under such a level of service?

“Lovely place”

I have been more than once in The Red House and they have never disappointed me! Wonderful food and great service just a minute away from Vitoshka Street.

“The best restaurant we visited on our trip to Bulgaria”
Reviewed June 21, 2014

The waiter ordered for us, he recommended several very good dishes. To us, it was a perfect meal! We had aubergine salad, calamari salad, cheese bread, grilled beef (the best of Sofia) with grilled vegetables and saute green chilly peppers. The salads were sensational, nice cheese bread. The beef was perfectly cooked to our liking and the vegetables were fresh and juicy.
We were very happy with the food and will recommend it to our friends and family when they visit Sofia.

“The worst restaurant I have ever been”
Reviewed April 16, 2014

This was my first visit. The restaurant has a nice garden, and this is all. We waited several hours to be served. The waiter made numerous mistakes bringing us different meals that we didn't order, spilled the wine. A lot of people just leaved the restaurant, being not able to wait. The food is nothing special, some kind of low level food. The selection of wines and beers was very poor. I will never go back there.

“Nice, cozy, good athmosphere, good service”
Reviewed January 30, 2014

I go there quite often and believe the restaurant is great for casual dinner with friends. Food is tasty, service is fine. I definitely recommend all soups (especially the vegetables one) as well as the souffle. In general, I think it is good price for what you get.
In the summer - the have tables outside and you can basically enjoy the nice weather while having lunch/ dinner. Definitely a recommended place.
