The city has much to offer those who want to spend some money – from numerous shopping malls to markets and locally-owned boutiques.

Bulgarian wine is considered among the best in the world, and the only place worth checking out in Sofia to buy it is Vino Orenda. An institution in Sofia, Vino Orenda, is small but well-known, and the shopkeeper is exceptionally knowledgeable. The shop carries over 300 wines sourced from 60 different wineries all over Bulgaria.

Restaurants in Sofia

The culinary scene in Sofia is remarkable and unpredictable, with the traditional Bulgarian dishes consistently interpreted across different restaurants. Also, several other eateries have their own versions of international flavors and cuisine. If you want to know what makes the city’s food scene unique, check out the following restaurants. 

Shtastlivetsa

Bulgarian for “lucky man,” this restaurant is one of the best places in the city to taste authentic and traditional Bulgarian cuisine. They also serve a local variation of different international dishes. Due to its popularity, it's best to book a table at Shtastlivetsa ahead of time. 

Taj Mahal

You might be wondering why an Indian restaurant is listed as one of the best places to eat when in Sofia, but Taj Mahal is definitely worth trying. Locals agree that this is the restaurant to go to if you’re looking for authentic Indian dishes. They also serve beer and cocktails, which can be paired perfectly with your meals.

Little Things

Found within a tiny house, you might not initially get why this charming restaurant is an excellent choice for dining in Sofia. Don’t let its size fool you, though; the servings are huge, and everything is homemade. Little Things serves traditional Bulgarian food and international dishes, including bestsellers creamy fish, handmade meatballs, and their popular dessert, the fig cheesecake.

Spacious restaurants may not mind visitors carrying a huge duffel bag or a suitcase while they eat. But those bulky items can be bothersome for small dining spots like Little Things —even for you and other patrons!
