Staria Chinar (the Old Sycamore) occupies a beautiful house in the Old Centre of Sofia, dating back to 1922. Specialities include fabulous game and meat dishes prepared in a wood-burning oven and barbecue, such as St. George's lamb, pork knuckle, veal and beef specialities - from head to tail cuts. Traditional Bulgarian appetisers also have a special place here: stuffed bell peppers, aubergine puree and home-made lyutenitsa among others.
Each week the menu includes fresh seasonal products and fresh fish.
A spacious garden invites guests to escape the hustle and bustle and admire the archaeological finds and artefacts that are on display.

The first restaurant by this name opened in Varna and after visiting it I was longing that we could have one in Sofia, too. This is now a reality and I highly recommend the venue! There is not a single item on the menu that I have tried and didn't like. The food is just gorgeous. An insider's tip - Rick Steves' tourist always have a meal here when in Sofia.
