Are most of the ratings real??

If you like your decor dark and crowded-its for you. If you prefer your food too salty- enjoy it. If you want to pretend you know good food- you will like it. Overpriced for the quality. Just like the city's mayor- who we bumped in to the two times we visited. Not a bad place if no other option... read more

My favourite restaurant in Bulgaria! I've been there many times, basically each time I went to Plovdiv. I loved the food, the staff, sitting outside in cosy chairs or inside enjoying the decorations and the wine bar. Everyone can choose for the menu (though it might take some time because everything sounds delicious) and the atmosphere in very nice. And... More

Wonderful atmosphere, exceptional food, qualified service and rich wine selection. Do not miss to visit and do not miss to make a reservation first. The place is for a reason always busy and fully booked. Some of the choices you will never regret making will be the goose liver, the pork cutlet with parmesan ice cream, ember-roasted lamb cutlets, chocolate... More

The atmosphere of the restaurant is relaxing, they played nice chillout music while we were there. No idea if that is usual. I particularly liked the aubergine, red&green peppers salad that comes with bruscetti and a qatip dip (not sure if it was qatiq or something similar to it). The creme brulee with peaches was great as well. We had... More

The restaurant is very nice to sit in and service was friendly and helpful but I was disappointed with my food. The starter that I ordered sounded very interesting on the menu but was nothing special when it arrived. The main courses were served when we were still in the middle of our starters which was annoying and the chicken... More

Loved the decor - an experience in itself. The staff were very friendly and efficient. Sorry to say I cannot remember what I ate, but at least I remember that the food was excellent and good value.

The service was excellent, extremely friendly and co-operative. It was quite late and we wanted something light, with a glass of wine and the chance to relax after a long day checking out the sights. Conveniently located between the pedestrian area and the old town, the decor invites you to sit down and relax. And the menu although slightly on... More

I ordered salad and veal with mushrooms. This restaurant is not cheap so expect small portions. The salad was nothing special, o could make better, when I read it at the menu seemed really delicious but it was nothing special. The veal was good but not enough for my appetite and a little expensive for only this portion. Not bad... More
