We found the restaurant after not being impressed by some of the recommended restaurants in the Old town where the food was for “tourists”. In each of the restaurants you could order the same dishes with the same taste as if they all have one...plastic menu. In the White Dolphin we saw the difference not only in the cosy atmosphere, but also in the paper menu we were offered, where all of the dishes were different and unique. Indeed, Mediterranean type of food. We ate their salads from the garden, bruschetta, calamari, fish, chicken and each of the dishes was very delicious. Even the French fries were different from the ones you are normally served in the restaurants. For dessert we ordered fig tiramisu, which is rather fig cheesecake, which was exceptionally good. We drank good craft beer and delicious home-made lemonade. If we add to that that prices are affordable and the staff is very friendly and competent, then this is definitely the best restaurant in Sozopol.More

We dined at the White Dolphin last year and had a good experience. Unfortunately, this year was not the same. Nice and quiet location still but the food was not worth the money. As an example, the ciabatta was spread with margarine. Also the staff...were not wearing masks as per covid rules.More
