I can't think of a place that I would recommend to people who want to try Bulgarian BBQ. The garden is pretty nice in the winter and summer. Our last visit was only slightly ruined by an impolite middle aged waiter who was grumpy and...More

Excellent place for Bulgarian style BBQ. The lack of beef on the menu is largely compensated by the meatballs "kufte" and "kebapche". Make sure you try the lamb meatballs. Limited seating not inside, more seating outside in the garden. Reserve in advance over the weekends...More

Basically OK place. I would give it a Very Good mark if the meatballs and meals in general weren't always oversalted. Canteen atmosphere - restaurant prices. No beef. Nothing to write home about. Service is better than average, not very good.

What I liked here is the BBQ quality - meatballs from horse, pork, chops and ribs - almost perfect. I didn't like the poor garnish - it is pity to go for beef steak garnished with cabbage salad, fries and lyutenitsa. Didn't like high seating,...More

If you are a meat lover and good BBQ is your fetish, then you should try Skara Bar. It's good to make a reservation first, especially in the weekend.

Just behind the excellent Arena di Serdika Hotel lies this simple, informal and everso nice grill. Friendly staff, a good (meaty) menu and some terrific wine. Simple food in a great, informal atmosphere. Bring friends, scribble on the table coverings and watch yourself enjoying the...More

I'd say the place isn't bad. It's not amazing, but it isn't bad. The portions were nice, though in my personal opinion the minced meat needs a bit more spices. What ruined it for me was the waiter. After we didn't leave a significant tip...More

As the name suggests - this is no place for vegetarians: skara means bbq in Bulgarian. The food is delicious - they have everything from kebapche or kyufte to beefsteak, all served with a side of salad and home made fries. Be sure also to...More
