After looking at reviews we decided to come on a week day when less busy.... we had the pick of the outside tables and although it was very quiet it didn't feel strange, maybe because of the setting. We both chose salad as it was lunch time. Mine was ok, but the tomatoes were cold and I think they are... More

The only good thing about this place is the view, and that's why we went, but it was not worth the humiliation we endured. We came here just for desserts and coffee, and that seemed to offend the waiters, who served us with the air of contempt. Unbelievable. I have never ever seen such rude service ever in my life....

This beautiful lakeside setting is tastefully set up for eating outside. The staff are charming, very helpful and efficient. The food is very well prepared and presented. The wine list is extensive including many good Bulgarian wines. There is no time pressure at all. Having had a lovely lunch (local trout and sauvignon blanc) one day we went back for... More

Delicious food, great garden, friendly staff, above medium prices though. It is more a 'special occasion' place but it definitely is one! Try the chicken with gouda and pears! Also their mascarpone with peaches!!!

The place and the views wonderful, nothing else good to say. Service wasn't too bad but slow and tedious. Food didn't fulfill my expectations at all, the lamb was very dry and tasteless. Not to be recommended.

Was recommended this restaurants on the outskirts of Sofia, on a lake. The location is great, although getting there at rush hour can be a challenge. Outdoor seating with lakeview is nice. Our waiter was very attentive and polite, no issues there. The big disappointment was the food. None of the three appetizers that we tried had anything to rave... More

Tasty food, very nice garden, good and very relaxing view to the lake. Service is not the best, but you can try the desserts after them you are just on another planet :)

Extremely disappointed. Service was terrible. The waiter reminded me of the old soviet times stuff - always grumpy and super unpleasant. He messed up our order. In fact, he ruined our lunch. Would not go back there. Food is nothing special.

We heard good things about this restaurant and decided to book a table while we were staying in Sofia. Big mistake! We were no where near the lake and sat under a tree with its flowers falling off. We asked to sit and have a drink first and relax before dinner which was fine as it was sunny out side... More

The food was very tasty. Small good menu. Nice few dishes for vegetarians, plenty of choice for meat lovers. Good service, with a note that one of the main courses was delayed.
