Please , don't delete ths, it might make sense.. I was in Sofia about 2 years ago. I asked at the hotel, where I could see "Monster in law" with Jane Fonda.(I hope my food choices are better than my movie choices). I was told to go to a new multiplex in a new nearby suburb by taxi. I was really glad I went. After entering the building and going up an escalator, there was a huge buffet restaurant and beyond it was a formal dining restaurant. I can't remember ever seeing anything like this. It was mid afternoon and I had just had lunch. The theater was also amazing, as each seat had 2 armrests, so you didn't have to fight for control of an armrest with the person next to you. Also, people could walk to their seats without everyone having to get up; the aisle was so wide.

One restaurant that I enjoyed probably won't fit your criteria, but I think it's worth a mention. It was on the (or a) main shopping street; the street with the Sheraton Hotel. There was a large deck on the sidewalk. The menu (yes it was in english, but a Bulgarian menu is also available??). It had pictures of all the choices; probably 50 different salads with the size of the portions in grams and picture of the food; very reasonably priced. There was a restaurant across the street from this one, that was at least as good.

I am going to be in Sofia in the begining of July and I'll take notes. Prior to Sofia I am going to Tirana and Skopje. Haven't been to Skopje before. I was to Tirana 2 years ago, also. One thing that I remember is having a piece of walnut cake that was fantastic in a bakery with tables. As I left, the waiter said "please come back and visit us again". I thought; when was the last time someone said that ina restaurant? Maybe, where you are, but not here in Buesos Aires. I am planning to have another piece of walnut cake on July 1st!

Boy, that was quite a mouthful! Have you been to the FRENCH CONNECTION? I think that this is my favorite BA restaurant. Interesting menu, reasonably priced, good service (ate there with a friend recently on a Saturday night; 1 waiter did a great job), basic ambience. It's at French 2220 at Uriburu

I think that the worst meal I've had in BA or any place in the world was at OSAKA in Palermo Hollywood. Everything was TERRIBLE, the food, the service etc. I ate there about a year ago and thought it was VERY overpriced. Now it must insanely priced.

Any suggestion on good lunch spots in Zona Rosa of D.F.?

The Hotel Century at 152 Liverpool has a vegetarian restaurant buffet that I think is one of the best ANYWHERE. The food is exceptional, very reasonably priced.the restaurant and staff are great. It is open for lunch - monday-friday. I'm going to eat there next thursday or friday! Can't wait
