We stumbled across this place after a hike and all loved it! Meals were large and everything was traditional. Staff were friendly so I’d highly recommend it. Would return for an evening as they seem so much fun!

I have visited the place couple of times and my opinion was getting worse with each visit. Food is far from great, especially for the money. The staff is treating you really bad - from the parking to the time you leave...

Very traditional place at a few km outside central Sofia. Nicely decorated restaurant which offers traditional Bulgarian dances as long as songs from live singers. Food was excellent (vegetables, meat, wine...). Meat is grilled outside. Place can accommodate large groups. This was a lovely experience....More

I am not from this establishment, but from experience in Bulgaria I can say that most Bulgarian meals are accompanied by bread. I you choose a salad, or grilled veggies/meat you should be fine. Just learn the Bulgarian words... More
