Dining options: Breakfast, After-hours, Reservations
Description: We serve dinner only, after 5pm. Also do not confuse us with a Spanish 'tapas' bar, we are a wine bar in Sofia with a selection of meals. We are trying to change the perception of local Bulgarian products, applying the 'tapas' concept accompanied by really good, selected wines.

Look for the sign on Dondukov about 100 yards up the hill from the rear of the Opera House. It's worth finding Vino and Tapas either for a full meal or just for a snack and drinks. The woman serving is very knowledgable about wines, particularly those from Bulgaria which can be excellent and very good value. The food was of a very high standard, beautifully cooked and presented, On a warm evenng it was very pleasant to sit outside on their small balcony but there's also tables inside and a bar. Many of the restaurants in Sofia are pizza and pasta places but this one offers local cuisine with a bit of flair. Definitely one to seek out.

What a great place, we really enjoyed our first Bulgarian meal. Sitting outside we were provided with wonderful service by a lady who spoke excellent English, she explained the menu and wine options to us. We ordered 4 tapas and a bottle of local rose wine. Which with one amazing chocolate mouse for dessert totalled 59 Lev. Everything was delicious, I would recommend the stuffed avocado with tuna and the chicken wings, my partner loved the dessert! We will return when we come back to Sofia.

My boyfriend and i went to sofia for a long weekend and ate here on our first night. We arrived late on a friday and it was almost empty, so we had a lovely romantic setting to ourselves on the terrace. The service was excellent - the waitress was very helpful and made some great recommendations. We had some delicious bulgarian larger and a selection of tapas. The food is simple but delicious. I can honestly say it is one of the nicest meals i've had anywhere in a very long
time. I can't recommend it enough.

This was a very pleasant evening. Food is tasty and nicely presented and the two different bulgarian wines we tried (one white, one red) were both surprisingly good. The waitress is very nice and really passionate about the wine and we got plenty of good recommendations on Bulgarian wines to buy and bring home. Excellent restaurant for wine lovers.

Me and my husband had one of or best meals at this place during our Balkan honeymoon. The food (especially the goatcheese starter and the chocolate souffle) was superbt prepared and presented, the chef is simply very good at what he's doing! And I'm picky about the food, so.... But the best thing with this place is the woman who serves you the food - she recommended us so good wines to our food and was really interested in and knowledgable about wines! We tried a bulgarian Sav Blanc and Cab Sav. If you are looking for a truly good food and wine experience, this is the place!
