Gloria Mar Nessebar
Nesebar is not only an incredible blend of sunny beaches, warm sea and amazing landmarks but it is also a place where food and wine are idolized by both locals and visitors. It won't be an exaggeration to say that there are restaurants, bistros and cafés on every corner. In fact, the options are so many and varied that you will probably need at least a week to choose where to grab a bite. That's exactly why we have decided to narrow it down for you and dedicate this review to the greatest of them all - Gloria Mar.
Gloria Mar - Nessebar is the first member of the Gloria Mar chain, which also has restaurants in Sofia and St. Vlas. It lies on the beautiful promenade that connects the town with the cool blue waters of the harbour. The perfect location is the first advantage Gloria Mar has over its competitors. Many people, who are exhausted from the long sightseeing tours around the Old Town, are immediately attracted by the southern appeal of the façade of the restaurant and slip inside to get a lovely lunch or dinner and recharge their batteries.
The interior is spacious and bright. The white walls combine well with the stone arches and wooden ornaments and lend the place a distinct Mediterranean feel. The large windows and fish tank are perhaps the main stylistic highlights on the first floor, but it is the second floor terrace, with its breathtaking views of the harbour, that really steals the show.
The restaurant will entice you with a wide assortment of traditional and exotic seafood dishes, international meals and mouthwatering sushi. Oh, and let's not forget about the impressive selection of wines too. The fish cooked in the restaurant comes directly from the local fishermen and is displayed in large refrigerated glass cabinets for guests to pick from. Needless to say, it is delivered on a daily basis and hence it is always fresh. When dining there, one must certainly not miss out on trying the paella - it is prepared directly in the street in front of the restaurant, and tastes simply divine. The little guests of Gloria Mar can check out the pizzas and syrupy desserts.
The waiting staff are highly-trained professionals who will always give you an expert advice on how to select an appropriate wine for your food, recommend a nice specialty, or just make you feel like the most important client in the restaurant. And the chef... well, his culinary masterpieces speak for themselves.
If you are a guest of the restaurant, you can park your car at the nearby parking lot. However, the more pleasant way to get to Gloria Mar is by taking a leisurely walk along the promenade.
