Had one of our finest dinners here, especially the honey ribs were fantastic. Very good prices as well and good decor. Will definitely be visiting again whenever in Sofia.

Great atmosphere, kind staff and a good food. Here you can try traditional bulgarian food with modern presentation. Also offer a good local traditional alcohol rakia.

The food is great, place is cozy with warm atmosphere in soviet design. The restaurant offers probably the greatest variety of the traditional 'Rakia' drink.

We had dinner at this place. Everything we tasted was really good. I would recommend the honey pork chops and the horse sutzuk. Decoration takes you back to the communist era

Food was really poor compared to other places we eat in Sofia. Service was really poor as well. We payed almost double to what we have payed elsewhere in the town and the portions were almost half. Service was slow. Not recommended.

So far, the best food we've eaten in Bulgaria. Traditional dishes well adapted to the modern cuisine. The spiced bread with oil was astonishingly delicious! The ambient was friendly and the service impeccable. Our waiter Martin offered us calling a taxi at the end of...More
