The most popular traditional restaurant in Sofia


Settled in the very heart of Sofia, Hadjidraganov’s Cellars is a magnificent restaurant complex. It astonishes local and foreign visitors with its exceptional variety of traditional Bulgarian dishes and its stupendous wine selection.

To bring you a tad closer to the inimitable Bulgarian culture, there is live folklore music played in an old cellar. The hand-made design and traditional ornaments stun foreigners and locals alike.

For the ultimate experience, we specifically recommend savouring bob chorba – beans stewed in a clay pot (or slow cooker) – that comes with a small candle under the pot to keep the dish warm.



If you are a meat lover, definitely opt for the skewers – they are not only an elation for the palate but also for the eye.

Should you happen to visit Hadjidraganov’s Cellars in summer, ensure you secure a spot in the gorgeous garden. Its privacy teleports it among the top central spots of Sofia for indulging in delectable beverages and mouth-watering dishes.
