Cozy, boutique restaurant in the very heart of Sofia. The restaurant is located in a 3-floor house with a sunny and quite front garden. The menu is short, but each meal is carefully selected to meet the highest expectations for taste, creativity and presentation. Aubergine - Craft beer. Craft food. is the first and only restaurant in Bulgaria, that is paring its meals with local craft beers.
