There is no shortage of restaurants in Sofia if you want a lively atmosphere in which to meet up with friends, but if you are looking for something quieter, possibly a little more upmarket with a great menu, discreet service and maybe even a good view for that very special date night, the choice might be more limited or maybe it is just a long time since we have been on a romantic dinner date. What better than to check in with the Sofia Foodies for some of their recommendations. Pastorant - with it's small cosy yet arty interior has convinced over the years with its consistently high standard of cuisine and impeccable service. Club Pouchkine - if you really want the setting to impress then this may well be your place as the beautiful crystal glassware is bound to give an extra sparkle to the evening and the live piano music is so refreshing, maybe you can even get your favourite music played. Soul Kitchen - the whole place just oozes 'love' with a love for food and living creatures ( yes it's vegan) an imaginative menu and great attention to detail.The smaller spaces within the restaurant definitely enhance the intimate atmosphere. 33 Gastronauts - another cosy restaurant that has stood the test of time with an enchanting outdoor area for romantic summer nights Andre - the beautiful villa setting in the city centre can only enhance the overall romantic ambience of dining at 'celebrity' chef Andre Tokev's restaurant Restaurant Chef's- The food creations by chef Victor Angelov are always sure to impress, so it may well be worth splashing out that little bit extra.There are 2 locations - one in the heart of the city (Sense Hotel) and the other slightly less cosy ambiente is in Lozenets. Sage Restaurant - if you are looking for an adventurous ride out of town, where a roaring fire welcomes you with excellent food and friendly service, then Sage may well be what you are looking for.
