We stumbled across this restaurant on Saturday night and despite them being quite busy they found a table for us. The food was so tasty and the service excellent. We ate Carpaccio, a special of giant beans with chorizo and both of us had a parpadelle dish, mine with ragu and my friend with proscuito and mushrooms - all excellent

As many here have already attested the food whipped up by Pastorant is of good quality, the service is friendly and the wine selection is not half bad. The only problems is that the pasta is not fresh (but dried), which is a bit of a letdown really, hence the 4 stars from me.

You will feel it as soon as you land in the country. For some reason service in Bulgaria is a shock for the traveller. In most of the taverns, restaurants and cafeterias staff are rude and bored. Pastorant is no exception. Their cuisine is not something special and the prices are unreasonably high! Don't waste your precious time here.

Everything is divine. The food, the interior, the wine list, the predictability. Cheap it is not...However, you will magically be transported in some trans European upper middle class slash intelligenzia parallel universe. A MUST xoxoxo

Nice place. The pasta's taste really good and the design is nice. For 7-10 euro's you can order a tasty main dish. There are cheaper places, but it is still cheap and the extra 2 or 3 euro's are definitely worth the money

Went their for late lunch around 4pm. Reasonably quite. The food was really good, especially my salad. The service was slow and the staff disappeared for long periods of time and their seamed to be a lot of them doing anything but serve people, I think this was to do with the time of day rather than anything else and...

I had a surprise birthday lunch in that restaurant and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. We had a great carrot soup as soup of the day. We ate a Risotto as the main course. We got good wine recommendation (great bottle of Pinot Grigio). All it was a warm, cozy and delicious dining experience.

Thank diana4getit
