Was recommended this restaurants on the outskirts of Sofia, on a lake. The location is great, although getting there at rush hour can be a challenge. Outdoor seating with lakeview is nice. Our waiter was very attentive and polite, no issues there. The big disappointment was the food. None of the three appetizers that we tried had anything to rave... More

Tasty food, very nice garden, good and very relaxing view to the lake. Service is not the best, but you can try the desserts after them you are just on another planet :)

Extremely disappointed. Service was terrible. The waiter reminded me of the old soviet times stuff - always grumpy and super unpleasant. He messed up our order. In fact, he ruined our lunch. Would not go back there. Food is nothing special.

We heard good things about this restaurant and decided to book a table while we were staying in Sofia. Big mistake! We were no where near the lake and sat under a tree with its flowers falling off. We asked to sit and have a drink first and relax before dinner which was fine as it was sunny out side... More

The food was very tasty. Small good menu. Nice few dishes for vegetarians, plenty of choice for meat lovers. Good service, with a note that one of the main courses was delayed.

Too expensive and the food is not responding to the prices. I wouldn't come again for this kind of food.

I was there on February 14 , great kitchen, very pleasant atmosphere with wonderful live music. Have a special area on the lake where you can hang a padlock with their loved one. I came back again. Favorite restaurant .

What a great dining experience we had at this place. The restaurant is about ten miles outside Sophia on a lovely tranquil lake. We visited in December, but I can imagine how things would be in spring and summer. My son had lamb steak with roast potatoes and the usual veg and I had an amazing confection of prawns rolled...

Perfect restaurant. I visited this restaurant 3-4 times for last 3 years. It is perfect. Food and services is amazing. Atmosphere is very, very good. Near to Sofia and situated on Pancharevo lake. Amazing for business and family meetings.
