Haven't been there for quite a while but was nicely surprised that the impression from last visit is still valid. Perfect service, waiter with a smile and new dishes. The renovated garden is nice and cosy, makes you feel the heart of the city, a bit like Paris cafés. The new steaks on lava stone are a must!

First of all It was the first time that the waiter had a smile on his face after seeing that I didt speak Bulgarian... in all the other restaurants I have been they were quite rude!

The food was great, I had two starters to try a bit of different things and a beer (big) and I spent less that 20 levas ( less than 10 euros) so it was a good deal!

The place is very nice and again they people there is very friendly which was a surprise for me!

Anyway you should visit Plovdiv, but if you can learn some words in Bulgarian.. =)

Attractive restaurant, centrally located in pedestrian street adjacent to old town. Some reviews faulted service but we found it to be prompt and courteous. Large menu offers many choices. All our selections were attractively plated and quickly delivered. Everything was good and to high standard. The high rating is deserved. Worth a visit.

Hemingway is my favorite restaurant for a special dinner in Plovdiv. Great dishes, affordable for a foreigner. I usually have their exquisite fish-soup as a starter.
I ll never go there again on a Sunday though. Too many people, bad service.
Service in weekdays is friendly and there for you.

We sat outside and were offered blankets as it was chilly which was lovely. The service was prompt and not obtrusive. The prices were reasonable and the restaurant is right in the heart of the old city which makes it easy to find. We has the seafood tagliatelle which was delicious and the porcini mushroom risotto. Whilst it was tasty it could have used seasoning and I don't think they used arborio/risotto rice. It was still a tasty meal in a nice atmosphere.
