Sofia Restaurant Week is back with a spring edition for 2017

Discover the culinary diversity of Bulgaria’s capital city with our week-long restaurant festival from 7-13 May

Out with the old, in with the new! What better time to explore Sofia’s restaurants than spring, just when they are rolling out their new menus, full of spring greens, fresh local produce and vibrant colours.

For 7 days 25 restaurants in Sofia offer 3 course meals at the fantastic price of just 25 leva. With each restaurant offering 2 menus, that’s 50 set menus to choose from! Restaurants are offering at least 30% discount on the list price of the meal. Following the exceptional success of the first restaurant festival in September 2016, which saw more than 6000 people visit the 25 participating restaurants, the spring Sofia Restaurant Week puts together a tempting feast of new locations, new menus and culinary delights.

Sofia Restaurant Week’s 2017 showcases 17 new restaurants alongside 8 from the first edition. Make the most of Sofia Restaurant Week and take a week-long tour of the hottest places to eat in Sofia – discover little known boutique restaurants alongside those of celebrity chefs and long-standing favourites – without breaking your budget. Sofia Restaurant Week’s organisers select restaurants based on a combination of criteria, not just looking for excellent standards of cuisine but also great service, an exceptional interior or lovely garden and the overall culinary experience they offer. Getting the right mix of styles, tastes and emotions is of utmost importance to make sure there is something for everyone. SRW 2017 offers a host of experiences, from small family restaurants such as Vino&Tapas and Bagri, to classy venues like Talents, Terrazza di Serdica and Club Pouchkine. The chefs of Nico’las, 33 Gastronauts, Cactus and Petrus have made a name for themselves with innovative dishes, experimental use of products and attention to presentation. Fans of live jazz can try Armenian restaurant Egur, Egur and Italian wine bar Morino Urban Wine & Dine. If you’re looking for a family day out where the children will be welcomed – try Petrus with its kids playroom or Ventana with its beautiful garden. Social Cafe and Esterhazi Bar both offer lunch and dinner in a buzzing, modern setting. National cuisines on offer in this edition of SRW are Asian, Indian, Mediterranean, French, Italian, Greek, Bulgarian, Armenian. Besides nationality, we specifically chose restaurants that are defined by their philosophy and cooking techniques: Soul Kitchen offers purely vegan cuisine, while Roadhouse Grill’s expertise is high class steak from USA and Italy, Vaccuum cooks everything with the sous vide method.
