We had very high expectations from all the good reviews but the food was very disappointing. The staff and ambience were great but the food,unfortunately, was just very mediocre. We visited the Atlas restaurant close by the following night and we enjoyed the best meal experience in our weeks stay in Bulgaria. Hemingway is living on its laurels I'm afraid.

Walk around the lovely old town of Plovdiv, taste some local wine, but make sure you end your adventure at Hemmingway. Welcoming, warm and comfortable. The food is beautifully served and delicious. Local dishes and marvellous salads. The wine we had was exquisite. And the lemon cheesecake was bliss! There can't be many better ways of spending a Sunday with... More

It had been a while since we last visited Hemingway, so we thought we'd give it ago this visit. From the moment we arrived the staff were incredibly helpful and eager to help however they could. The atmosphere was so relaxed and enjoyable and the vast menu choices offered a selection of fish, chicken, pork or duck dishes all complimented... More

Lovely food and atmosphere. The menu is rich, the service friendly and professional. They have a good wine selection and the live jazz music just adds to the whole experience.

I recently moved here this September and was quite excited to try the restaurant after reading many great reviews and seeing the ranking here in Plovdiv. In all of my attempts to go there, I have only ever been successful once, which was for lunch and my party of three was one of two parties in the entire restaurant. Even... More

The redtaurant is located in a quiet sideway off the main shopping area. It is easy to find. During summer time there is a large outside seating area. The dining room is quite big but still lovely decorated. Very ambitious waiters speak usually english, sone even german or french. The kitchen is very good. The portions are big enough, although...

I've tried Hemingway couple of times and each one was marvelous. The food is very tasty, the wine is also good and the service is excellent. I would say - a must go mid-to-high price restaurant if you're in the center and want to spend a quality time with good food.
