We had excellent French food in this restaurant. Service was very good too. It's located in the city center, near the mosque. Don't miss this place when you are in Sofia.

It's a very nice and cosy french restaurant in Sofia. You could easily miss it because it is situated in a more quieter part of the city center..The place is decorated nicely and with style although it's not very big (probably best to make reservation)...More
