Such a nice place to visit in the outskirts of Sofia. The location itself is really picturesque, in foothills of Plana mountain, halfway between Sofia and Borovetz ski resort. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who enjoys really delicious local food in casual atmosphere...More

Food was served cold, staff was unfriendly and service in general was not good. Overpriced and definitely not worth a stop.

I'm visiting this restaurant whenever I take the road to Borovets. It's cosy and nice either in the garden in sunny days or next to the fireplace in the winter. Delicious meals, fresh meat and fish, great desserts! Well done, PRIATELI!

It has parking *** / Wi Fi Access / HD TV / Kids Area/ Garden / Disabled access / no smoking / Fireplace ***The lake, the land, colors, flavors, aromas, authenticity. All of these go into making a dish. Of course, it's all about cooking... but most importantly it's about choosing. About technique,.. but more importantly respecting your ingredients. Globalization is taking over and it's more and more difficult for us to find our way, but I like to focus on simplicity. For me cooking is about searching, wanting, breathing. Whatever the secret of happiness is, it's up to each of us to understand it. Sometimes a lifetime isn't long enough. Perhaps it's in our children's eyes, in a kind gesture by a friend or a parent. Cooking is all of this. It's a whole approach to life. Generosity, hard work, humility but not humiliation, ignoring the latest fads and trends. All that's left for us to do is rediscover the moments of our childhood. Finding ourselves again. Touching a freshly-picked apple, breathing in the perfume of dew-soaked basil, waiting for the right time to press olives. Patience, a dose of courage and a pinch of salt.
