I was there on February 14 , great kitchen, very pleasant atmosphere with wonderful live music. Have a special area on the lake where you can hang a padlock with their loved one. I came back again. Favorite restaurant .

What a great dining experience we had at this place. The restaurant is about ten miles outside Sophia on a lovely tranquil lake. We visited in December, but I can imagine how things would be in spring and summer. My son had lamb steak with roast potatoes and the usual veg and I had an amazing confection of prawns rolled...

Perfect restaurant. I visited this restaurant 3-4 times for last 3 years. It is perfect. Food and services is amazing. Atmosphere is very, very good. Near to Sofia and situated on Pancharevo lake. Amazing for business and family meetings.

The service is good but the food is below standard and served cold. I also have my doubts on the quality and freshness to big menu.

Exquisite cuisine in a wonderful setting by the lake. Interior is also quite nice. Services are excellent. The only downside are prices, which are quite high.

The Lebed (Swan) restaurant looks rather luxurious from the outside, and a lot of effort hs been put into the interiors. Given the lakeside location, I was looking forward to a nice family birthday celebration. Furthermore, the prices are roughly double the average price for a meal in a restaurant in Bulgaria. How disappointed was I, however, to discover the... More

It is Ok. I wasn't very pleased with the food. Nice location though. It has a parking lot, which is nice.

Beautiful view and good food but overpriced. I recommend to try it out in spring or summer but it's not a place I would go often. It's a place to go one or two times I guess just for the view. I liked it cause I think is kind of a romantic place.

Thank Themelinaki
