Tried to book the Europa restaurant online and next thing we got a pone call to say they are closing at 6pm on new years eve to let the staff have some time off but that we now have his personal number and if we have a problem to ring him and he will try to recommend somewhere. Couldn't believe he had gone to the trouble of ringing us in the uk, how lovely was that.
Anyway going to look on line and see if we can find another restaurant but any recommendations greatly appreciated. If not will be walking around eating whats available off the stalls.
i think you may end up snacking it from the fast food takeaways.There is a pizzeria,Morske Conche that is right next to where the fireworks usually are,but it won't be serving food until midnight.I went into the nearest Mehana to the square yesterday and asked them if they were open,but they said they are closed on 31st.
I would go on Slivnitsa,around where MacDonalds is,you have a good selection of restaurants like Happy,Subway and a new Turkish place plus a few more that should open until fairly late,then make your way to the main square as it gets nearer midnight,there are some small shops open late where you can buy a beer to take out and drink while you wait for midnight.
Many of the Mehanas that do work on New Years Eve are booked in advance and have a set menu with a cover price for large groups.
As has been said before,if the weather is anything like favourable,Varna will be partying until well into the early hours,and it will be a feel good atmosphere with lots of happy and smiling faces.
