My wife and I visited this place and let me tell you that we loved. We call to reserve our table and they squeezed us in, seating at the bar with other guests this gave us the opportunity to chat to their barman and we...could observe him make drinks. The food was really great: traditional Bulgarian meat platter, pork ribs were perfectly cooked for starters and main course respectively. I would gladly recommend.More

Tired kitchen, rude staff, food blend, to bad the decor is nice and the ingredients are great, so maybe they had a bad day or they will probably close soon// very disappointing, took the six step taste menu. Henrik and Michaela

What an experience ! We were a group of 6 friends and Grisha was our waiter. He perfectly took care of us and explained very precisely each coming dishes (we ordered 4 regular tasting menus and 2 vegan tasting menus with the wine pairings). In...a country where the sense of service is far away from Western standards, it was definitely the best service we had (and even better than some countries). The quantity of food per dishes is neither too much neither too little. The cocktails are super tasty and original. Go for it !More

More than excellent, huge but cosy, fast-serving yet with heart, and most important - sublime taste and flavours! My favourite restaurant ever!

We stopped in Sofia on our way from Austria to Black Sea coast and looked for a special place to dine with our two daughters (14 and 17). Definitely an excellent choice to go. We took 4 tasting menus (both vegeterian and meat) with paired...drinks. Really wonderful and interesting experience - different tastes adn seasonings than we are used in Western or Central Europe. Very, very helpful and pleasant service, homely atmosphere and still everybody made us feel very special. We recommend without hesitation. Jiri and family from AustriaMore

Both me and my partner work at the restaurants and we're quite picky with food. But have to admit, we LOVED this place! Amazing service, each of the waiters as the bartenders very polite and friendly, food - just amazing, melting in mouth. Delicate lamb,...spreads with sourdough bread - perfectly combined flavours. Desserts (Bulgarian rose and Gravity) are just cherry on the top. I wosh we had more time in Sofia to visit this place again. You're doing great job guys✨✨ Small tip for guests, this place is pretty popular, make a reservation to make sure you get a table:)More

A local guy recommend us this place. We enjoyed the afternoon a lot, the staff is super welcoming, friendly and flexible which is great. Specially this guy who speaks spanish, he was amazing. On the other hand, we had both tasting menus, and the food...was ok. Sometimes it was surprising but others it was like meeeh ok-ish, specially the salads. We understand the concept and the ideas behind the dishes, but there is no wow factor; but hey! this is only one opinion. Some ingredients like the trout, the beef cheeks or most of the vegetarian dishes were packed with flavour. However, for example, the chicken with local truffle was tasteless. Big compliments for the desserts, 3 out of 3 were great. I would not hesitate to try it again to change my mind for few dishes/ingredients. Great job there with the atmosphere, lights, music and design!More

I don’t know. Didn’t pay attention to that. You should ask the restaurant.

I usually plan on around 25-30 EUR per person for a nice long dinner with desserts and plenty of nice wine. But that's a very relaxed budget there and I think 15-20 EUR would still be a nice experience. For vegetarians, I... More

Lauren is more or less right. The front windows won't give you the opportunity to see fireworks. We have a terrace as of recently, located on the second floor. However, we haven't tested it during a New Year's celebration... More
