“Experience to remember and enjoy over again”

High quality meal was served in the right order, impeccably presented in every way, friendly and well trained staff made us feel really well taken care of. Overall a great atmosphere, definitely will be going back.

“How did this get a high tripadvisor rating ? I assume it must be only family and friends who rated a CON”
Reviewed 6 January 2013

If you want the waiter swearing at you as he walks away go to this place !
Most of wine on the list seemed not to be available- when we got one the first bottle was off and the second warm
Food was nice in places but too many flavours on the same plate for the starter. Main was OK but not worth writing about.
Horrid decor 1970 ish
I've eaten in many better places in Sofia so perhaps the ratings will tell the truth eventually, I fell conned by what must be family and friends only reviews

“2 words: don't bother!!”
Reviewed 6 January 2013 via mobile

Service was terrible: not only was the server incompetent but also extremely rude! Then, the wine list wasn't representative of their actual available selection: they only had 5 bottles of red to offer, all of which of average quality and very warm. The food, although pretentious, was very average at places. I asked for a salad without vinaigrette as I can't have sugar and it came drenched in one...my porc was dry but the sauce was ok. The appetizer was good save for the plastic dish it came on. Last, but not least, the deco and atmosphere was so tacky that you wonder how anyone could rate this restaurant as one of the best in Sofia. This is an insult to all the really good ones in the city.
So do yourself a favor: go somewhere else!!

“Absolutely stunning restaurant ! Food and service 5*”
Reviewed 5 January 2013

Went to sidoniya last night for dinner with my partner and we found excellent quality food , top service and amazing value for money! The restaurant was very cosy and intimate - perfect for romantic meal! Our waiter couldn't be more helpful. We looked for a good piano bar in sofia so he recommended a lovely place, phoned up on our behalf to reserve a table and called us a taxi to get to there! ... We were looked after like VIPs (:
Beautiful place- highly recommended !
