Sunny Beach in Bulgaria is a favorite summer spot of both Bulgarians and Europeans, who enjoy the all-night parties. After a night out, however, good food is essential for recovering and getting ready for the next one. Here’s our list of the ten best places to start your day in Sunny Beach, offering a wide range of dishes from typical Bulgarian to upscale Mediterranean cuisine.

1. Musoni

Restaurant, Bar, European, Mediterranean

Musoni is an upmarket place in the center of Sunny Beach where you can enjoy fresh Bulgarian and Mediterranean food, or choose from their sushi menu. The jazz and soul music or piano performance is a perfect background for a relaxing start to the day. The wine list is excellent as well, so don’t miss it.

2. Hawaii Restaurant and Bar

Restaurant, European

Here, the good food served on the beach comes with the bonus of a beautiful view of the neighboring town of Nessebar and the resort village of Sveti Vlas. Hawaii gets into the party spirit after sunset, and on selected evenings you can join in a karaoke night or enjoy live music.

3. The Fat Cat

Restaurant, European, British

This food and entertainment venue is famous first and foremost for its karaoke nights, but its food deserves a mention as well – it is fresh and reasonably priced. Check the cocktail happy hours, and join the international crowd gathering at the Fat Cat when football is on TV.

4. 100% Family Restaurant

Restaurant, European, Bulgarian

This family-run restaurant can easily become your favorite, with its fresh and tasty food. 100% Family’s motto is “Whatever we do, we do it with love,” and the owners stick to that. You can stop by for breakfast, or opt for dinner in order to explore more of their Bulgarian cuisine. We recommend the fish and chips.

5. Coco Beach Bar

Bar, Restaurant, European, Bulgarian

This quiet food venue is situated right on the sand, with its own sunbeds and umbrellas to rent and a kids’ area with a bouncy castle. Coco Beach Bar is famous for its pancakes in the morning, while at night you can taste their cocktails – keep an eye out for the happy hour deals.

6. Lapa Lapa

Restaurant, European, Bulgarian

This restaurant’s name can be roughly translated from Bulgarian as “Eat, eat.” This is what you will want to do here, especially given the great prices and good-size portions. Try their pizzas and grilled meats.

7. Restaurant Bolero

Restaurant, European, Bulgarian, Mediterranean

Bolero is a great place to enjoy your coffee in the company of freshly prepared food. The Mediterranean, Bulgarian, and international dishes will meet your highest expectations. Try their variety of salads, and if you return for dinner, take a look at the cocktail menu.

8. Hotel Venus

Bistro, Bulgarian, European

The quiet and clean family-run Venus hotel offers excellent food at its bistro. You can have breakfast by the pool or return at night at the bar to listen to some live music as a background to your dinner. Don’t miss the grilled meat, or try the Chinese dishes if you feel like trying something exotic.

9. Restaurant Djanny

Restaurant, European, Bulgarian

You may have to stand in line to get a table at Djanny Restaurant, as it garners great interest from both locals and foreigners alike. Their menu offers a huge selection, so you might want to get some help from the waiters. We recommend trying the skewers and the Italian dishes.

10. Morris

Bar, Restaurant, European, Bulgarian

Morris is a place to have good food at reasonable prices with a relaxing view of the sea. The staff are always pleasant, and you can often find live performances at night. Aside from the big portions, this venue is loved for its wide variety of Bulgarian and European beers. It’s conveniently located on the beach.
