Very nice restaurant, cozy atmosphere. Food was just excellent. What you would expect when looking for a nice evening. Very welcoming personnel, who, despite difficulties with English, can make themself not only understood, but very pleasant hosts. Had some of the traditional Bulgarian food, but also newer creations (chef's special), which was very well balanced and layered. Congrats. Definitely recommend.

We stumbled across this restaurant and liked it so much we returned for our last evening meal of the holiday. We were impressed by the ambience of the place... Traditional Bulgarian clothing and instruments adorn the walls and there is a rustic feel about it. We sat in the terrace both times and it had a vine covered open air... More

Great restaurant close to the South Beach area in New Nessebar. Lots on the menu to choose from, both beverages and food. Excellent value for your money. And Diana the waitress is just lovely! The decor is wonderful and quaint, old Bulgarian folk dresses on the walls and interesting artwork. We were back three times after our first meal because... More

Visited this restaurant several times whilst on holiday in June. Lovely food, great prices, pleasant staff. Asked the owner/manager if we could have a wee look inside and got a wonderful history lesson too. The authentic Bulgarian clothing belonged to her Grandmother so she was very knowledgeable about the items. Will certainly return next year.

We stopped at this restaurant on our first night and were not disappointed. The boss had a pepper steak and I had steak with onions both were cooked to our liking (medium is more like medium rare it appears so should be noted) they came with chips but I wish I would have purchased some veg as well in hindsight....

Great food and friendly staff, very good value for money. Convenient location near the south beach which makes it perfect for lunch while we are at the beach and a much better choice than the fast food restaurants at the entrance of the beach. Definitely ask for the lunch menu - you won't regret it!

very poor service and the food was disgusting. With my family chose this restaurant were very unpleasantly surprised by the attitude of the staff, and the dishes that we ordered were cold almost tasteless and very expensive.
