Whereas you can look into the windows of the Kavarna (cafe), the French restaurant Francouzska is much more private. Once inside you return to 1912 with modern service. A major reconstruction in the 1990s has returned it to its original standard including original Art Nouveau fittings and restored wall designs. Even though it’s a fairly long floor its well broken up with alcoved seating on both sides and centrally located tables leaving two corridors to get in and out. Beautiful place for a meal. At weekends the end of the room doubles as a stage for live jazz and you’ll find live piano in the evenings.
If you want the best selection of French style food then come here for the Francouzska Sunday Brunch as it’s usually a collection of French regional cuisine. It’s only on the first Sunday in the month. There is a Chefs degustation menu which is very nice but, doesn’t really cry out that it’s French. You’d be better off choosing a nice starter and main course from the a la carte menu like the fried scallops or the “Coq au Vin” etc. They also do nice sauces so basically you get a meal like the cod but with Bouillabaise sauce or beef tenderloin with a black truffle sauce. Grilled duck Fois Gras is a speciality of Francouzska.
My Favourite: Ravioli stuffed with Tandoori prawns with white truffle oil to start and the grilled beef tenderloin as a main course (with potato confit, olive oil and a black truffle sauce).
