It's actually the 2nd time we got here, and this time we came especially for the food at ego. Mind you there are a few locations. This one has an upstairs BBQ/Steakhouse which they recommended for us 2 times. Don't go there, it's a trap ;) The menu is different, very few options, mostly burgers, steak, pizza. And they didn't...

In Bulgaria normally you have great meals. And this restaurant confirm this rule. We had ordered a very delicious steak accompanied with a great bottle of Bulgarian red wine, making that dinner a winner one Also the view from the restaurant of Yantra River which is somewhere down also is unforgettable Recommended

We went on a Saturday morning to have some traditional but simple dishes. At the start the waiter seemed confused and puzzled, but he still took our order. We waited 50min, and still no food.

Situated overlooking a large geographical bowl in the historical city of Veliko Tarnovo. We sat by the window, which was ideal. Staff were capable and efficient. A large and varied menu was on show. We didn't have to wait long for our food and drink, which was lovely and most enjoyable. Slight problem with ordering fresh fries and actually receiving... More

This was a perfect choice to stop and have lunch on a sunny day. We sat at the table out on the terrace with an amazing view of the river below and the town. The food was very good and fresh, and served promptly. The wifi worked great, which was a plus since we did not have a data plan... More

Food is delicious, service ok, but sometimes when the restaurant is full it is not fast. Grill only in the evening is real barbeque.

The food is delicious but in my opinion they have problems with the staff. The waitress was rough and slow.
