“Surprisingly nice place in the heart of Sofia”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

We celebrated the 2013 New Years eve at this place and we had one unforgettable and pleasant evening at this place. The food is really delicious the staff is very kind and the place is calm and nice. One thing which is very important for me and my friends is that they strictly obey the non-smoking rules which gives you the opportunity to really feel the delight of the dishes and the charm of the restaurant. I will really recommend.

“Quiet and pleasant gem located at the heart of the Sofia CBD”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2012

The best value for money in Sofia. Excellent food and drinks on competitive prices.

The place has central location (quiet and pleasant gem at the heart of the Sofia CBD). Can cater big tourist groups, special occasions as well as families.

Have unique interior design that permit having privacy even when busy.

The chef and his crew are offering traditional Bulgarian dishes as well as almost any other dish that the client desires. The wine list offers exquisite as well as traditional Bulgarian wines.

Outside the lunch and dinner hours you can relax with a cup of coffee or a cold beer listening to the marble fountain while continuing enjoying the excellent, professional and personalised service.
I definitely recommend this place. You will not be disappointed.

“Extremely interesting place in an old historic house.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

You certainly will notice how different is this restaurant - very high ceilings, beautiful pictures and photographs on the walls, fountain with dripping water in the middle, cozy atmosphere. The kitchen is definitely very good - some dishes are remarkable. We go very often for lunch, there is different lunch menu every day. A lot of foreigners like and prefer this place.

“Good food and atmosphere but service of low quality”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2012 via mobile

The place is absolutely great and original (probably even better on sundays when there is tango dancing) and there is a very nice atmosphere of past times of grandeur. The food was mostly great, except for the carrots served with the exotic chicken and which had turned sour...unfortunately, our meal was quiet chaotic as the waitress didn't speak nor understand a single word of englsh and brought us at first the wrong dishes and next the main courses before the starters...so if you don't speak bulgarian, you might need some patience, but on average - except for the carrots problem - the food was good !
