Somewhere between "Average" and "Very Good". I would rate it "Good". Looks promising, cozy and warm from outside in a quiet street right off Rakovski ul. But extremely messy inside. Tables and chairs do not match and you might get a plastic, wooden, aluminum (or a combination of all) chair(s) while the table might be the other. Distribution is also a little chaotic and degrades the first impression. Menu is a vast eclectic selection of all food groups available (pardon me...surprisingly enough, all but...pasta...and that's a first). While the restaurant was recommended to us as a "fish" restaurant, we were surprised to see several options of meat cuts, american USDA choices and all. But we decided to stick to the original plan and choose from the various "hornbeam charcoal" (or so they say) items. All items are published as cooked in the famous "hornbeam charcoal" but our Mixed Vegetables, although nicely done (they lacked mushrooms as well as an explanation as why was on the menu but not on our plate), we seriously doubt "hornbeam charcoal" or any charcoal for that matter was involved at any time. The same applies for the "buffalo cow milk cheese", smoked...extremely strong flavored and just seared in the grill. Half order should do since, as said, its strong flavor and spice saturates quickly your palate. Salmon was fantastic (yes, you guessed, "hornbeam charcoal" again) BUT careful with the price. Salmon is one and only item on the whole menu that, with NO note or warning, is priced by the 100 grms BUT the kitchen will you bring you portion accordingly to their criteria. That means that, as we did, my wife did ask (and point) to menu to order the "Fresh Salmon Filet on Hornbeam Charcoal 100 grs/6.50.-Bgn" BUT when the bill came, they tried to charge us 23.- Bgn since its the kitchen who decides what size your portion will be and in our case, they decided that we will have 300 grs portion. After a little arguing, and very politely, they deleted the charge. I tried the trout and was fantastic, fresh and very tasty. And excellent price. Bread is charged by the piece and I suggest you start by just one. Another bummer is the wine list. Extremely expensive. Nonsense. But if you look carefully or ask directly to the waiter they have small bottles at a very reasonable price. Beer, as everywhere, is cheap but careful because the draft/house beer is imported german and you will pay doble than a local bottled that, is my opinion, is as good as any german. Service is a little disorganized and slow but they try hard. English should not be a problem.
