Why locals love it

Raketa is a traditional Bulgarian Restaurant with nice decoration, unique atmosphere and relaxed ambience. The food is really delicious, the menu is typically Bulgarian with a modern twist. The interior provides an ironical perspective of communism and it's symbols.

Why you should visit it

Though the menus in English are outdated, the friendly stuff will recommend you the best dishes. Locals sit at the terrace in summer and enjoy the great Zaimov park view. Since the name of the restaurant includes the word Rakia (Schnapps), they have various different types of Bulgarian Rakia. Just go for it!

Special tip

Locals usually drink a glass of Bulgarian Rakia accompanied by Shopska salad (tomatoes, cucumbers, onions,peppers and white cheese).

It's not a budget restaurant, still the prices are reasonable. I am not sure if there is any bus or metro station. Sorry
