There's no shortage of places to eat or drink in Plovdiv with some great new places opening up in recent years, particularly in and around Kapana and raising the general standard and variety of food on offer.
Dining experiences can still be a bit of a 'hit or miss' affair and most locals opt for the safety of pizzerias of which there are plenty of good ones. We have personally checked out many of the restaurants here and encourage you to check them out for yourselves.
In the Old Town most of the restaurants are fancy and on the expensive side and there are few places to buy a snack.
On and near the main pedestrian street you will find all manner of snack bars, cafes serving food, pizzerias and take away such as pizza slices, doner kebabs, cardboard cups of hot sweetcorn and more.
