The service was excellent, very friendly and smiling stuff. We tried the bulgarian national cuisine and we had best foods here! Went there two times because food was so good.

Restaurant looks stunning!! Don't be fooled..staff are just slow and rather rude. A don't care attitude. Food came - had the skewers. Was raw - 2 dishes both inedible. Yuck. Walked out as when complained staff were so rubbish at dealing with it. Be warned - better places to go.

This is where to go for traditional Bulgarian country food. So good we went twice. The menu is huge and varied but would recommend the Bulgarian traditional dishes. The Chopska Salad was a large starter with huge amounts of cheese. My son had a kebab one night and a meat casserole the other. I had a pork stew one time... More

We visited this restaurant on a couple of occasions on our holiday and i definitely think it was my most favourite! We received a really warm welcome and the menu featured traditional Bulgarian Mountain food and as my Dad had visited many times before I knew that it would be good! The fried chicken livers and clams were a definite... More

Very nice restaurant, cozy atmosphere. Food was just excellent. What you would expect when looking for a nice evening. Very welcoming personnel, who, despite difficulties with English, can make themself not only understood, but very pleasant hosts. Had some of the traditional Bulgarian food, but also newer creations (chef's special), which was very well balanced and layered. Congrats. Definitely recommend.

We stumbled across this restaurant and liked it so much we returned for our last evening meal of the holiday. We were impressed by the ambience of the place... Traditional Bulgarian clothing and instruments adorn the walls and there is a rustic feel about it. We sat in the terrace both times and it had a vine covered open air... More
