If you expect to get an authentic schnitzel there, you will be disappointed. The meat was badly seasoned and had rubber consistency. And this was quite pricey, something around 22 lv. The green salad was almost tasteless. The interior is less than modest and the...More

Great choice of German beer. This month they have many Mexican food options as well as "chili" beer. Try "chicken fajitas" which is for two person.

I lived in Germany for a year and half an I really do like the food, despite many thinking it to be too heavy. This place does a nice job of producing it in Bulgaria, while also having good beer.
