Leventa complex is located about 5 km drive from the center of Ruse, in a green and pleasant area. Leventa complex houses a big restaurant and the Rousse Wine House. The restaurant is divided into 7 halls and seats 150 people. Vaulted ceilings and hand-painted wall frescoes, wrought iron chandeliers and candle shaped lights, thick wooden doors and cupboards bring in a feeling of class and grandeur.
The complex is located in the 19th century Ottoman Levent Tabia Fort which in itself is a big attraction. The restaurant part opened back in the 1970s and due to its unusual location and characteristics, it was reserved mainly for top party and government leaders and their guests. Fidel Castro, Leonid Brezhnev and Chaushesku have all dined here at some stage as have thousands of tourist groups visiting the Danube capital of Bulgaria.
Apart from history and classic grandeur, Leventa attracts people with its beautiful garden. The huge yard is easily converted into open air party space with cute gazebos and tables under leafy willow trees. There is even a small playground where you can have the children play while you are sitting and chatting with a friend over a cup of tea or a glass of wine.
Highly qualified chefs and sommeliers work at Leventa and food is usually associated with the wine to go with it. Try the six course tasting dinner menu while you are there, you won't regret it. And should you decide to do the proper wine tasting, call them to book in advance. The wine-cellar organizes wine tastings upon request and as part of a Wine House information tour which will introduce you not only to the taste of wine but also to the technologies used to produce it.
