Mehana Neptune

Reviewed By MEAFaro - Algarve, Portugal

Perched on the cliff with a wonderful view of the sea.
We were visited by the seagulls that want our lunch.
The service is friendly and efficient and the atmosphere welcoming.
We wanted to eat Black Sea food and we chose a fish soup, grilled small blue fish and fried gobbies, all fresh, excellent.
For dessert a crepe with figs in compote. Delicious.
If you pass by Sozopol do not miss it.

Urania Bistro

Reviewed By Andreea L - Bucharest, Bucuresti, Romania

We've been to quite a lot of restaurants in the past years, and this one surely has a place in the top. We're vegetarians and we found here so redined dishes, very different tastes and platting, all combined in a wonderful experience. The serving is very fast, the view wonderful, thus we will probably eat here every day, and try all the vegetarians dishes till the end :) and for sure most of desserts. We've been really impressed with the food here.

Mehana Sozopol

Reviewed By delikomsu - Dalyan, Turkey

Loved everything about this place from the word go. Beautiful old building with colourful flower baskets, traditional décor and a spit roast in the corner, a couple of musicians on guitar and violin. Plus excellent food and service. A true taste of Bulgaria in the heart of Sozopol. You must visit and enjoy.

Reviewed By Raelene H - Melbourne, Australia

Happened upon this restaurant for lunch as we wanted a seat overlooking the sea and our first choice had nothing available. So glad we found this place. Service was good, atmosphere great and the food was amazing. Really big serves, beautifully presented and so tasty. Price was reasonable, and much cheaper than some other places closer to the shopping area.

Had a superb lunch and booked an evening meal, to celebrate
my wife's birthday the following week. Great service, food
outstanding, prawns to die for and the main course, sea bream
cooked to perfection. Prices are very reasonable, very attentive
service and a pleasure to have chosen our favourite restaurant
in Sozopol yet again. Please go, you won't be disappointed, that's for sure.

Lovely restaurant, located on the edge of the rocks

Reviewed By Markus V - Baar, Switzerland

Like many other Restaurants in Sozopol this one offers a great view to the Sea, in particular during sun-down. The food is okay, prices are reasonable. But, and that is what is really annoying - not limited to this place - when it comes to pay the ceck, surprise, surprise, the Credit card terminal "unfortunately" does not work. Owners like these should consider that they may save a rather marginal amount of money (i e the Commission) but for sure will loose those who they should rely on, the customer. Recommendation: ask if payment by Credit Card is possible and if not choose one of the other Restaurants.

Espozito

Reviewed By 611Marie - Belfast, United Kingdom

We have been coming to Sozopol for many years and last year we came across this restaurant. The food is excellent with an extensive menu. I can highly recommend the Vienna Schnitzel which virtually covered the plate. The restaurant decor compliments the fine dining experience and not to mention the waitress / hostess Liliana who epitomises professionality. I will come back again and again. Great food that is very reasonably priced.
