How it works:
- Situation: most places are fine, it’s generally just a few bad eggs around touristy areas that spoil it for the rest.
- Version 1: a different price reflected on the bill compared to the price on the menu.
- Version 2: extra dishes or drinks which you did not order are served and charged; or offering a free dish which is still charged at the end.
- Version 3: misleading seafood prices – advertising a low price but not specifying that the price is per 100g.
Places to beware:
- Nessebar: Nessebar Old Town
What to do:
- Eat at reputable places (use food review apps like Zomato) and avoid those promoted by touts.
- Check the menu (prices, fine print), do not eat what was not ordered and check your bill.
- You may also consider a food tour for a local experience – GetYourGuide (best day tours platform in Europe) has a couple of options.
