A guide to great places near Hotel Marinela Sofia

  1. Restaurant Panorama

    I can't name the exact reason why I like coming here - is it the quality food or the fantastic view...

  2. Captain Cook

    Too overrated. The sea dishes in the Panorama restaurant at the top of hotel is much more exquisite and fish meals worth their prices.
