The selection of beer at Halbite is tremendous. It was good to see so many Bulgarian craft beers on offer and the the house beer was dark and delicious! We visited a couple of times and enjoyed a few craft beers.

Great place for having a beer and some food. Pretzels are delicious, we really liked it. The menu was in Bulgarian, so we ordered some things we didn't wanted (liked), we found English menu online afterwards. I liked the place anyway.

Personally I am in love with the place as it offers a variety of beers and the menu is quite rich! The atmosphere is cozy and it is perfect for both romantic diners and gatherings. The waiters are polite and service is on point. I would advise to make a reservation prior to visiting as it may be full and... More

Set on several levels a massive beer menu of draft and bottles, world and Bulgarian beers awaits. They also have a large food menu. Good atmosphere and really friendly staff. Great Saturday night buzz

Went here for dinner two nights out of a three night stay in Bulgaria, lovely cosy spot and a huge range of Bulgarian and international beer, food wasn't anything outstanding but of an all round good quality and very competitively priced. Overall very good value for money and away from the tourist trail.

Halbite offers each week a different lunch menu (and different for each of the three restaurants). Also there is a huge selection of draft and bottled beers (and one of my favorite - Weihenstephan Weiss). Prices are affordable too.
