When eating in Varna, you have two important tasks: to try traditional Bulgarian food and to eat fresh fish. Discover which are the best places to do so and find a few other favorite food venues of the locals with our list of the best restaurants in Varna.
This is more than a restaurant – eating at Aksakovska Panorama feels like eating in an ethnographic museum. The owner has taken advantage of the perfect hilly location which offers a wonderful panorama over Varna and the sea and has added an eclectic collection of Bulgarian bric-a- brac and objects from all over the world. The menu will not only introduce you to the Bulgarian cuisine, but it actually offers some rare recipes, impossible to find anywhere else in the country. Try the rose juice and read the menu slowly as every dish has a story attached to its description. It’s located a short drive out of Varna.
Vegetarians will appreciate the delicious and healthy food served with a pinch of extra attention and enthusiasm in Jasmine Tea House. Try the local and international cheese varieties, fresh vegetables, fish, and grains and choose a ginger lemonade or freshly squeezed juice to accompany them. Sit on a colorful pillow in the garden and enjoy the good food.
Bulgaria has world-class wines and what better place to taste them than a fine dining restaurant like Di Wine! The intimate atmosphere is equally good for couples and for a business lunch, the service is immaculate, the food will leave a lasting memory (try the almond chicken and the fish), while the huge wine list will spoil you for choice.
If you crave a pizza with a crispy base and fresh ingredients on top, some fish or classic European cuisine, Largo is the place to go. Located in the center of Varna, this stylish restaurant balances the urban style of the interior and the laid back atmosphere of the garden.
