Good but not remarkable

Great location. Awesome garden. Good atmosphere. Sub par food. Not bad. But not matching everything else (including the price). Service was decent but not excellent.

The food in the restaurant was really good and on reasonable prices. The unpleasent thing was the mistake the waitress made - she didn't seem to speak english well and got the order of my clients wrong. After that she tried to convince them that they've ordered what she brought... Even asked me in bulgarian to ask them to pay... More

I'm afraid I don't speak Bulgarian and I think the waiters are nervous about serving foreigners, so expect slow dining. But the menu is in English and I really enjoyed the main (chicken with pineapple) and dessert (souffle) in a leafy terrace setting. There is no real view to speak of as it's over a noisy main road with construction... More

Loved this place! Delicious food, nice staff. The garden is very beautiful - I highly recommend it if you are visiting Plovdiv in the summertime. In case you are into arts there is a private museum and an art gallery in the same house.

The stylish terrace is just right for a summer lunch. Good food - nothing exceptional, but well prepared and presented. Service was a bit slower and more erratic than it should be at a fairly upmarket restaurant like this one.

Lovely local wines. Fresh food and produce. Great location and decor. However service needs improving - I was still eating in my starter and my main was brought out and left on the table. I had to switch out the plates myself. Very embarrassing. Main was then luke warm when I got to it. This practice leaves no time between... More

Terrible pasta that was probably forgotten and brought to us half an hour later... Totally disappointed- I came after reading other reviews but it is totally not worth it

This is a nice restaurant with a few tables of outside seating that is worth visiting after a long walk through the old city.

This is one of the nicer places to sit in the Old Town, set within the lovely covered garden of a historic house, and offers excellent traditional Bulgarian food like baked pork knuckle. Beware, however, that service can be slow.
