warm hospitality

The owner was charming, really special, and the food was good. Lovely atmosphere, good for afternoon coffee or evening meal.I think it's about mid-price for Varna - excellent value. I would love to go back there some day.

Thank you for a lovely Sunday lunch. The room with the chimney place was wonderful. Warm and cozy. Just what we needed to hind from the wind. :) The french onion soup was great, as recommended and the foie gras terrine was to die for.

Our food was quite good, reasonably priced and the staff was helpful and friendly. We didn't wait long for our meal and weren't rushed to eat it. I saw the owner take time reading the specials to an English speaker who, for some reason, couldn't read the specials board. The owner took his time and explained all of the options.... More

TOURIST TRAP, avoid at all costs!!! This restaurant is the very definition of a tourist trap - a good location and some nice flowers outside make it seem like a good choice but the prices are high and the food is AWFUL. I had fish and my friend had mixed grill - both pretty horrible, served plainly in an empty... More

The restaurant seems very unassuming when passing by, but the food was amazing! All the specials come with a story of the recipe, the local ingredients and the inspirations behind them. The pink tomatoes with goat cheese were absolutely gorgeous. Our whole lunch was an experience. A real gem of a bistro!
