Atmosphere is cosy but the live music is really loud and kind of annoying. The food is plenty but not that tasty.

The food was very tasty, offering traditional Bulgarian dishes. At the center of the city, located in a traditional old building. Low prices.

Best restaurant in city which you can enjoy Bulgarian kitchen. Ask waiter to bring a mixed meze (cold appetizers) plate. As a main course try their Lamb Dirnik of Beef. Nice atmosphere, decorated with old stuff hanged on the walls.

Very good food. Even better wine. Service a little on the slower side. Live music, still not too loud, so it's not disturbing the ocnversation. Lots of space and no crowd. Decors planned to be traditional bulgarian, so need to fit guest taste to like them. If you want to check out what the bulgarian cuisine has to offer and... More

The restaurant is located in the centre of the town. It has a nice garden, so during summer you can stay outside. However inside is dark and not very much comfortable. The food is typical Bulgarian, but something very special, and not very tasty. The service is average.

I definitely recommend Pri Yafata. It's an old restaurant with lots of traditional decorations all around, and its menu features the highlights of Bulgarian cuisine. The wait staff is definitely knowledgeable and will work with you to make sure your experience there is as good as it can be. Best of all, they serve up true delicacies that will probably... More

I stopped here because the hostel told me this place had good traditional Bulgarian. I was a bit worried when I didn't see anyone else there -- but then I realized it was only 4:30 and way too early for dinner! I asked the stone-faced waiter for recommendations; I'm pretty sure he pointed to every single thing on the menu.... More
