It is one of those local restaurants, recommended by the locals,where you can still find good traditional food and the prices remains low. I've been there several times and tried lots of dishes. The cheese bread and all the clay pots are delicious, although I don't recommend the deserts. They accept cash and also credit card, and you can pay... More

We went there for a late lunch and found the service to be quite poor, and the food unpleasant. My husband asked the waiter to recommend a dish and he was encouraged to order one of the most expensive items on the menu: a roast lamb dish with liver pilaf. It arrived and was such a disappointment. It was luke... More

We tried some salads and thracian dishes prepared in a clay pot. We liked everything. We also didn't have to wait for a long time for waiters. Visited this restaurant because it was recommended to us by locals.

Don't go there unless you have a couple of hours to waste. I have been a regular customer for 10 years and in the recent couple of years they have made whatever possible to repulse their repeat customers. First, the service is terrible, the waiters are cheeky and lazy, and make you feel like you are an intruder in their... More

Amazing atmosphere and music. They have very interesting cooking style for chicken (they use swords and alcohol). Dishes are not so attractive but delicious. The Oscar goes to prices :) too cheap.

We have stopped here because of Tripadvisor reviews we found. The bathroom was stinking awfull, and the lemonade we order was 300 ml instead of 500 ml as written in the menu, but at least it had honey in it. Besides this the menu is very diverse, and they say they can modify the food if you ask them. Average... More

I ate twice at this impressive wooden-clad restaurant. The first meal was excellent -- oven-baked beans and "shopska" salad -- but the second meal wasn't so great -- fried fish. Both times I had fish in Ruse they just fried it in batter/oil and it was too dry, with a hard crust. And they hadn't removed the bones. But the... More
