Very good location, on the promenade of Golden Sands resort. Traditional food, traditional music and good atmosphere. Price is little bit high but it is ok.

Convenient location on the pedestrian promenade and good traditional food make this a great choice for locals or tourists. We enjoyed the food, service and atmosphere of this restaurant. We will return when we are back in town and recommend this restaurant to anyone.

The old house is a fine example of traditional Bulgarian food. My wife is Bulgarian and we eat Bulgarian dishes on a regular basis. We enjoyed foo and the service was good, mainly because it was almost empty. It is however over priced by not just Bulgarian national standard but also for the resorts.

Food was ok. We got the grilled pork. It tasted good however meet was quite dry. I also got a salad and the calories were still frozen in the middle. However staff was very rude. Food was brought very late. We only went once. I would not recommend it.

The restaurant has a central location on the pedestrian promenade overlooking of the sea /within 2 minutes walking from the well known hotel "Admiral".

Restaurant "The Old House" combines authentic Bulgarian atmosphere of a traditional house with a beautiful patio where fresh organic vegetables, herbs and flowers are grown. There are many places for outdoor seating around a landscaped courtyard. Inside the venue there is a large dining space furnished with traditional wooden furniture. On the other side of the house there is a spacious terrace with beautiful sea views.
The restaurant serves up the most traditional Bulgarian dishes prepared according to old recipes - traditional sac platters, various stews and dishes in clay pots /kavarma, kapama and others/, tasty appetizer dips/as Aubergine sauce (kiopolu) and tomato chutney (liutenitsa)/, homemade bread, grilled meats and refreshing salads. Every evening a whole lamb/pork and chicken/ is roasted on a spit on fire the so called Cheverme /one of the trademarks of the Bulgarian cuisine/.
The above delicacies are usually consumed with a glass of good wine. The Bulgarian wines are famous for their superb taste. Another popular alcoholic beverage in the country is the rakia /made from grapes, plum, pears or other fruites/.

Every evening a gypsy orchestra takes care of cheerful mood. The orchestra performs music of different styles, languages that will satisfy even the most delicate desires of the guests of the restaurant.
