When we write about classy restaurants that we would gladly recommend, we can’t fail to mention Memory Wine & Dine, which has been offering cozy hospitality in the heart of the oldest lively city in Europe for 10 years now.
Memory Wine & Dine is the perfect place where with the very entering you get the impression of elegance and tranquility. Nothing here is intrusive or blatant. The entire interior is crafted in classic style with great color combinations. For the guests looking for a more discreet atmosphere, there is a separate hall that is suitable for celebrating both private holidays and corporate events or business meetings, and the main part is spacious and offering discretion when dining or eating in the company of friends or loved ones.
The summer garden is a magical place in which you completely forget that you are almost in the very center of the second largest city in Bulgaria. The accompaniment of the piano with the evening dish is enchanting and takes us to magical worlds that add even more to the quality experience. All the lights and noises of the city are somehow muted and distant, and you seem to have sunk in an unearthly timelessness, where only the delicious food and the pleasant company matter.
During the day you can enjoy an arrangement of relaxing songs and in the evening, apart from the music played live on the piano, different bands and musicians also have gigs, making the whole process of eating an immeasurable pleasure and enriching the cultural program of the restaurant.
The cuisine is a unique mix of Bulgarian, Mediterranean and European recipes, prepared with the personal touch of Chef Alexander Bardarov.
Having accumulated experience at home and abroad he and his team recreate the magic of food so that one can enjoy every note and component of the dish.
Duck liver on chocolate brownies and dried fruit sauce, here the smoked selected meats and Sicilian cannoli with raspberry cream are only a small part of
the selected and seasonally changing menu that will delight and surprise us with new and fascinating tastes - another sign of a highly qualified restaurant.
The whole feast for the senses is perfectly complemented by the exclusive wine selection with specially selected offers of the best wineries. Due to its rich assortment, the restaurant is often the scene for tasting the latest offers and an experienced sommelier reveals the aromas and flavors of the wine offered, as well as its possibilities to combine it with the dishes to get a full enjoyment of your dinner or lunch. In Memory Wine & Dine you can buy a lot of the offered wines for home at prices from the manufacturer or the trader.
On weekdays, the restaurant always offers a lunch menu, which we can confirm with no doubt that it is one of the most preferred in the city and makes the work process a bit more delicious.
The service is always discreet and the experienced staff is available when you need a recommendation for the most suitable drink for your chosen dish or the specialty of the day.
The only thing left for us as guests is to relax in the great atmosphere and enjoy the feast for our taste buds, which one of the best restaurants in town under the hills offers us.
Memory Wine & Dine certainly has something to fascinate and challenge you, especially if you are an admirer of classical wines, uniquely prepared and served food and the unique atmosphere.
