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.

Restaurant is situated in the new town of Nessebar. It has an excellent choice of Bulgarian dishes. The quality of the service and food was great. In my opinion, this is probably one of the best restaurants in the new town. (I have been going on holiday to Nessebar each summer for the past four years, and tried quite a... More

This restaurant does genuine Bulgarian dihes. The chicken or pork kharva came in an eartenware dish, complete with flames! Needs a garnish with it, the saute potatoes were very good. I ordered bread, and must admit that I used some to finish off the sauce. Went back to sample another local dish. Can't remember the full title, but it ends... More

Situated just up the road from the Hotel Mirage in South Beach, New Nessebar, this is a restaurant used by locals with a good menu. The lamb kavarma was supurb, as was the local wine. The staff were very attentive and made great suggestions, so good we went there 3 times and weren't diappointed.
