2) Morskite Dyavoli (Sea Devils)
For an authentic Bulgarian meal right next to the beach, Morskite Dyavoli is the perfect place for you.
Located right on the Central Beach, the limited number of tables boast stunning views over the sea and the little bay.
We came here twice for lunch as the location is super convenient for a bite after sunbathing on the beach in the morning. But the restaurant is just as good a fit for a sunset dinner.
This place is number one on my list based on its super affordable prices mixed with high quality staple Bulgarian food dishes and the amazing location by the beach.
Make sure to try the chef’s specialty dish or a portion of fries with Bulgarian feta cheese and Shepherd’s salad (shopska salata) if you want to truly eat like a local.

I recommend you book your table for around an hour before sunset so you can fully indulge in the views (it’s not as impressive when it’s pitch black outside!)
