We were walking around our first night in Sunny Beach, getting a feel for the place. It was quite late and Bistro Billy was still serving and so we went in to eat. I ordered a bottle of wine with my meal and my partner got a few beers. The food was fine, we were that hungry after our flight anything would have pleased us. As we paid and give a tip, the waitress suggested that we were too drunk to walk back to our hotel 5 minutes away and was aware it was our first night there. I found this strange as we literally had 3 drinks each and were far from drunk! She called over to a taxi man opposite to take us home "as it was too dangerous for us to walk"! Got into the taxi and I had read reviews about taxis ripping off people. I asked him how much it was - the hotel was a 5 minute walk, and he said "20 lev"!!! I imediately got out of the taxi as I refused to be ripped off, and the taxi man bombarded us with abuse. The waitress came running over to see what the problem was and I explained that it was too exspensive!! Two nights later we made the mistake of walking past the restaurant and the waitress caught our eye and came running at us "excuse me, I want to talk to you", my partner ignored here to which she screamed "I am a lady, talk to me". We were totally freaked by this and continued to walk on - it put a dampner on our holiday. I suspect they were all working together in an effort to rip of tourists so be careful!!
