Personal review of the best seafood restaurant in Vidin

Vidin is a city located in North-Western Bulgaria on the bank of the Danube river. The city is close to the Romanian and Serbian border and is a big transport center for this region.

As it’s situated on the Danube river, fishing is popular among locals and fish is offered in almost all restaurants in the city.

Vidin restaurants mostly offer alminute dishes and are budget places where you can have a quick bite and beer.

Our meal of fried grass carp with potatoes in Fish and Grill Dunava – very delicious!

My favorite place to eat fresh fish in Vidin is Fish and Grill Dunava. This is a small boat turned into a restaurant and is situated on the river Danube itself. They prepare fresh fish depending on what was caught for the day. Their fish soup is perfect, their caviar is delicious and spicy.

You can check out what they offer and browse photos of the restaurant on their webpage: Fish and Grill Dunava.
