I tried english breakfast and it was very good. The place didn't look promising, but we were hungry and decided to try it. We were pleasantly surprised by the quality and quantity of the food. I would visit it again.

We visited The Blue for drinks in January. We wanted to find some live music. The music tho not the best performers was ok but the waitress serving us short changed us and when I went and questioned her she blatantly knew and then said it was because she had no change. There are plenty of bars in Borovets which... More

Nice place to have dinner before evening skating. Had some beers, salad, grilled meat, soup. Everything was fine. Soup was little cold, but that's not big deal.

The food was great, and the portions ample for two hungry people. Slight discrepancy with the bill that was sorted by the manager. Not sure why there was a mistake?? it wasn`t hard to work out the total cost. The beer was good and the service excellent.Good location too, quite near our hotel -The Rila. Albeit the food in the...

We used this place tonight for an evening meal. The place is small and friendly. Had TVs on showing skiing which was apt for a ski resort eatery. The menu was a little confusing as what I wanted finished being served at 6pm so the menu immediately became limited. However, Piri Piri chicken was good, plenty of meat on it... More

Our group eat there Wednesday 17th February and the food all ground was poor. Meat dishes very dry (pork, chicken and beef) and one of the worst chicken curries I have ever tasted, firstly it wasn't a curry and secondly all you could taste was salt. Sorry not impressed.

The interior of the restaurant is very nice decorated and the staff is attentive. I recommend the tiramisu, the biscuit cake and the pancakes. The Kentucky chicken was also delicious, so was the pizza and the fries! Even if the menu is not very long, the dishes are tasteful! Would definitely return!
