My boyfriend booked a table for two few days ago. He explicitly asked for a table with a nice view. When we arrived, we asked to change the table and we went upstairs. The location was great and food was fine. However, all the staff...were rude and unprofessional. We asked to the waitress to advise us about the menu. She just said "here we have traditional dishes". Thanks, we can read that. So my boyfriend was unsure about two plates (the blue chicken and the pokreklo) and the waitress just was not interested. So my boyfriend asked for the pokreklo but he got the blue chicken. We didn't complain because it was the second choice. Also, soon after she took the order, the waitress came back asking which appetisers we asked for because she forgot. Quite unbeliebavle considering the type of restaurant. I don't recomend it.More

Had a wonderful meal here, perhaps the best of my 1 week stay in Sofia. Vast menu presents all options you could want and everything we tried was delightful. Staff were amusingly brusque and always trying to sell us dearest drinks but we took it...with a pinch of salt and added to our evening. Great place to eat genuine Bulgarian food.More

The food used to be really good there, they even won an award in Sofia. But the quality isn’t the same anymore and the service is unfortunately really long. I think they suffer from the length of their menu. But it’s still a nice place...though !More

Chef cuisine restaurant that has it all in terms of diversity with a Bulgarian twist (cheese and cream). The interior is very stylish and warm, the service is great and the price for each dish is very low.

My friends and I decided to eat here one night for a birthday celebration and we were not disappointed at all. The decor set the mood for a delightful celebration. The staff was quick with seating us, taking our orders and eager to assist with...taking pictures for us after dinner. Everything we ate here was very tasteful and most of the dishes were large enough to share. I will be back.More

My partner and I enjoyed a meal here on a lazy Sunday afternoon. We chose the shopska salad and two other vegetarian dishes that did not disappoint-one with eggplant and the other with peppers, cheese and egg. Our waiter was very attentive and patient as...we practiced our novice Bulgarian with him. It was nice to sit and watch friends and families walk by as we ate our meal. We will definitely be back again!More
