The restaurant reflects a typical Bulgarian theme and layout where a cosy wooden bar on the mezzanine floor, stocks a variety of beverages – it is a great place to meet up with friends for drinks. The dining area in the lower level is a great setting for a truly romantic dinner with the area being separated into cosy nooks, with plenty of authentic Bulgarian knick-knacks, quaint wooden windows accented with lace curtains, and fireplaces. Making your way to the upper floor leads you to the function room. The Bulgarian theme is maintained by way of a countryside mural that stretches along the length of the room. This room also has a bar area and can be booked for private functions. Vintage Bulgaria Restaurant & Bar is proudly owned by a Bulgarian family living in Penang.
