Directions to Rubaiyat Sofia
If you are looking for a nice restaurant in the centre of Sofia where delicious food and excellent wine are served, then Rubaiyat is your place. It is a member of the famous Rubaiyat restaurant and wine shop chain established by arguably the best Bulgarian wineries and is situated inside one of the most symbolic buildings in the whole country - the National Palace of Culture.
Rubaiyat's location may be impressive, but its interior design is simply breathtaking. The stylish decoration, high ceilings and fashionable colour patterns of the spacious dining room delicately complement the modern furniture, massive wooden wine shelves and fine paintings by contemporary artists hanging on the walls. As a matter of fact, the clients are so mesmerised by these pieces of art that they actually buy them. So if a picture happens to catch your fancy, don't hesitate and just bid for it. Who knows, at the end of the evening you might even take it home with you.
The lyrical quotes you will come across in the restaurant are another important decorative element. They are all taken from Omar Khayyam's enchanting 'rubaiyat' (quatrains) dedicated to women and wine. The profound wisdom and soothing melodies they carry are the main reason for the restaurant to be named after them.
But no matter how sophisticated Rubaiyat Restaurant is, its main goal is a simple and straightforward one: to make you an active participant in the celestial marriage of divine food and exquisite wine. For every meal in the menu, for every tasty international specialty and ambrosial dessert there is a suitable wine in the wine list waiting for you. And thanks to the restaurant's close affiliation with the companies that produce it, it comes at unbelievable prices, too. Perhaps here is the time to also mention that the Rubaiyat wine brand has won a countless number of prestigious awards and accolades over the years and has nowadays become synonymous with high quality and success. That's why the wine tasting events and dinners organised at the restaurant are so special.
The culinary surprises that the restaurant's got to offer are quite a few as well. Start your gastronomic adventure from the mouthwatering hors d'oeuvres and tapas and whatever you do, do not miss out on the cheese plates and the large assortment of Spanish and Italian hams. There is a stunning variety of international meat, fish and vegetarian main dishes to continue with. Naturally, you can always opt for the local specialties - the restaurant's lunch menu is dedicated chiefly to the traditional Bulgarian cuisine and, needless to say, it includes different meals every single day. Finish your dinner with a piece of sweet Rubaiyat cake. And don't forget to combine everything with wine, please.
The live music shows are an inseparable part of the restaurant. They are held on a daily basis and certainly contribute to the amazing atmosphere of the place. We enjoy the thematic evenings the most. During these, the food you order and the music are in complete harmony and share identical cultural origins.
Oh, we almost forgot to tell you about the most unique feature of Rubaiyat Restaurant - the wine shop at the entrance. This is where you can grab a bottle of wine for a friend or yourself on your way home... the choice will be easy since you will have already done all the tasting at dinner.
