The food is not very good, only the salads. The menu is poor and the prices are above 13-14 leva. The chicken was not cooked well and there no steaks or something related to pig. It is only for wine and salads.

Nice place to hang out a while especially on a hot evening outside. Very friendly staff. The food was really nice. Bulgarian with their own twist. Small selection of Bulgarian craft beer. Reasonable selection of cocktails.

A few nice cocktails but very small choice, far better places to visit for cocktails nearer the centre of Sofia. Cucumber water on the table was a nice touch. It's not the easiest place to find..
