Fodor's Expert Review Shtastlivetsa
Book ahead for a window seat or on one of the terraces for views of the river and the surrounding cityscape. The shopska salad, a traditional Bulgarian dish of diced tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, onions, parsley, and sirene (a white brine cheese) is a nice light way to start off the meal. The menu is pan-European, featuring dishes like seafood risotto, lamb with mint sauce and yogurt, and several toothsome pizzas. If this restaurant is full, there's a second outpost at Ul. Hristo Botev 5, +359–62–606–053.
