Go and See Komat restaurant next to the Women’s Market in Sofia, Bulgaria

If you’re from Sofia, you probably wouldn’t think to seek out a sophisticated fine dining establishment near the Women’s Market.

However, that has changed. Since the DOT building was constructed, there is now a place offering fine cuisine and a pleasant atmosphere in that area- Komat restaurant. I encourage all Sofia food enthusiasts who haven’t heard of it yet to read on and discover what makes this special spot a magnet for customers.

See in Komat …

Art is everywhere: the building itself is an incredible work of art. Here are the highlights that impressed me the most:

… The façade, covered with rust, presumably controlled and sealed, is impossible to miss. It’s a brilliant solution by the architects from I/O to integrate such a luxurious building into the neighborhood.

When you look through the window, you see a wheelbarrow filled with white sand and drawings on it, delivering a message criticizing the constant intensive construction works on the Bulgaria’s coastline.

Look up, and you’ll see a lamp representing a glowing noose. It makes you think and wonder why a noose was chosen. Ponder a bit more, and you’ll likely find five different explanations. It’s a bold statement by the architects.

… The restaurant features numerous paintings, each with a message, all intriguing. I feel a bit uncomfortable when I stand to look at them since there are usually customers at the tables beneath them. Nonetheless, I can’t help but focus on these paintings every time I visit.

… The art doesn’t stop there- there’s a gallery on the upper floor. The charming lady explaining the artists and the paintings is Desi Sariyeva. She’s eloquent and will provide a detailed and engaging account of the art on display, making for an interesting conversation.

… Small sketches in the restroom, on the walls, and around various details in the interior are by Nedko Solakov. This playful touch is so appealing that I always notice and smile at them each time I visit.

… The mop adorned with necklaces and jewelry is placed between the first and second floors. The building offers accommodations, and this installation is in that section, not in the restaurant.

… The rooftop offers a 360-degree panoramic view. From what I understand, the space is part of the apartment on the top floor and might be available for events, as well as the gallery, but I’m not certain. It’s worth asking about.

… The service is excellent, creating a sense of timelessness and comfort.

Smell in Komat

… Wonderful aromas in the cocktails and the notes of fine wine from bottles served by the glass.


Taste  in Komat

… We attended the themed Black Sea dinner, and the food was exceptional and very impressive.

… However, during a subsequent standard dinner, I didn’t enjoy the beef tongue. It was left with its natural aroma, which isn’t my preference, and it was presented in a way that reminded me of its original form in the animal’s mouth, which I didn’t find appealing.

… I liked the salads and the bread served at the beginning with butter or spreads.

… The brunch offered on weekends is very tasty: variations of eggs prepared in different styles come with unique accompaniments, and the Bulgarian style donuts are my absolute favorite.

… The Pavlova is superb: as my favorite dessert, I try it everywhere it’s available, and here it did not disappoint in the least.

I recommend visiting Komat, even if just for a cocktail- the place is very impressive. If possible, explore the gallery.
