I tend to take pals here off season, because I know tourists like it and they bore me. While big enough, the outdoor seating ''under the linden tree'' is really where you want to be if the weather is decent. Prices are reasonable, with good...More

Delicious food served in a lovely old garden restaurant. The garden dining offers a respite from the city and the authentic recipes were amazing. The amount of food was far more than we could eat and was a tremendous value for the money. Seek this...More

The restaurant is a little out of the centre, but easily reachable on foot. Spacious rooms, very good food - grills, lutenitsa, salads. Service was a bit slow, considering there were few customers.

Very inviting restaurant, wooden interior and furniture, cosy fireplace, frequented by a good mix of Bulgarian and foreign punters; food served swiftly and accompanied live Bulgarian music and dance. A recommendable experience.

Service friendly, though bit slow towards the end. Would love to come back and really recommend...More

This restaurant was very popular before and the food was very good. Now the service is very slow and food is overpriced. The music is also annoying.

We used to come often at this restaurant. Unfortunately as many things that work well with time apparently the staff gets lazy. We waited to much and the service was terrible. The food is mediocre but would not recommend

I visited with a friend during the quiet early afternoon hours. Very friendly and efficient service - I suppose it also helped that the restaurant was quite empty at the time. We ordered salads which were quite good, but not memorable. By contrast the wild...More

Visited here with my partner on the recommendation of a tour guide. It's a little off the beaten track, but worth the trip. The place was full of a good mix of locals and tourists, but the friendly English-speaking staff found us a table. Excellent,...More
