Sophisticated elegant atmosphere! Great prepared meals - there are both traditional dishes made by local producers and exquisitely served Mediterranean fish. Traditional wines from the region. Congratulations for chef Rosen Chakarov!

In Bulgaria, one expects good food everywhere, hence my expectations, which were not met at this restaurant.

Took my Dad here for his 60th birthday. We returned the following night because it was so wonderful, really reasonable and fabulous staff. The singers were amazing too and sang for us. I would definitely return and recommend to everyone.

For the prices I expected a little bit more. It wasn't an explosion of tastes I was hoping for, but the food was still pretty decent. I ordered home made Vishnovka for the "desert" and it was just heaven.
