WELL WORTH A VISIT

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... read 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

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
