The food was at least unacceptable... some plates were overcooked, the pork smelled bad, and generally everything was tasteless. The atmosphere was ok. But the cherry was the live programme. Music is prerecorded and overlaps the voices of the singers. The dance can only entertain some impressionable tourists.

I've been on a wedding of my best friend there and it was awesome. Great atmosphere, very tasty bulgarian traditional cuisine, so many international guests, perfect service, nice prices and all that in the heart of Sofia.

Dinner was delicious and the traditional Bulgarian folkdance and folk singers were remarkable. We had grilled trout for dinner plus several side order. We opted for local beer Kamenitza which was a little bit sweet. But we loved it. The services were impeccable it has to be said.

I wavered on how to rate this, as the entertainment was the best part. Some of the food was only okay, but some was really good. I had Tongue on Bolyarsky: beef tongue, mushrooms, cheese and it was excellent. Tried the roasted lamb and it was very good also. The “Parlenka” with butter and garlic was grilled, but tasted burnt.... More

it's a very traditional, centrally located place. Service was good, friendly and the entertainment enchanting. This is a tourist restaurant, so while the experience is good, the food less so. It offers a huge menu, translated into English, so there is a great choice. Opt for the meat. Good for big parties. However the locals we were with thought the... More

Good ambiance with great traditional food! You have to book in advance if you want to stay in a table with good view of the folkloric dances - I didnt do that, unfortunately, but the manager found a way to move us to another table where we could at least look at the TV (they project the dance in a...

Traditional Bulgarian restaurant with song and dance. Food is a bit functional but it's a large restaurant catering for the tourist trade, though there seemed like quite a few locals present. We were a party of 16 that had a good night out. Entertaining and enjoyable.

The folklore dance was very interesting. The food was average. Overall it was a good try! The price was not that high. Worth it.

Perfect atmosphere but too expensive.for a small portion of bread you pay six leva for every person and in a lot of restsurants they give you also vevetables in the same dish of the meat. Here you have to order apart the vegetables. So the final price is expensive (comparing with the other restaurants of my holiday)

Hello Tio C , Мaybe you made ​​a mistake somewhere because our menu does not appear anywhere bread for 6 lev / You can look at the menu on our website / . The reason to do unadorned flesh is because everyone eats different things and whether we choose our customers to choose what they want. Sorry for the inconvenience... More
