Lovely little restaurant tucked away in a side street on the way into town. The food is beautiful and the family who run the place are lovely and very welcoming. Will definitely return on my next visit to Vlas.

We stayed at the Hotel Moonlight - a pleasant walk to get there, only takes 10minutes. We stayed all inclusive so it's a nice place to go to as an alternative to eating the same food over and over. Needs correct opening times on here.

Service great and good was good although the frozen fries were a disappointing addition to an otherwise beautiful meal. This was the only thing stopping a 5 rating and you should be sure to include this restaurant in your travels in Vlas.

A great restaurant just off the Main Street. Amazing food and service, they were more than happy to amend a meal to suit. Very reasonable price for starters, main, coffee and liqueurs. Well done to Rumi on her delicious honey, sorry we never got back to buy some (we were in with John & Wendy).

Not hard to find ... located about 5 minutes or 500m walk down from the center of Sveti Vlas. I made a reservation for two people as I had read about the place being crowded. When we arrived, a "Reserved" sign greeted us on an excellent located table in their outside courtyard (note: there is also inside dining). Observations are... More

Visited with friends, good was very delicious and the service was great and friendly. (Beware though as food comes in stages so don't try and all eat together) but the quality of the food over rides this. I can recommend the chicken sach, very generous portion so you may want to share.

We have been coming to Kotva for the last 10 years and have never been disappointed with the food or service that we have received from the restaurant. Rumi and Costa who own the restaurant are such a warm and friendly couple and always provide great service. Would definitely recommend that if you are visiting St Vlas that you take... More
