An authentic bulgarian restaurant with just 6 tables, if you are in Sofia for business or leisure you can’t miss is it! The owner is a chef that appeared on magazines many times during the years, now he manages the kitchen and customers alone.

If you are looking for something elegant and good service, this is not for you. But if you want great homemade-like food, in an authentic place, this is it. You will probably have to take and return your plates and glasses from the bar and...More

No printed menu, just whatever is fresh at the market. They advertise opening hours but admit they open/close when the cook feels like it. Self serve wine/beer. We ordered 1 of each dish offered today: Hummus, Spinach, Eggplant, Beef Kebab, Beef with Cinnamon and Lamb...More

Freddy is not a cook, he's a magician. Moreover, he's also an entertainer and his stories are amazing. His dishes speak of great imagination. This place is exactly the opposite of fancy, so, pretentious people - stay away and drink your cocktails or whatever.

This is an awesome little restaurant serving great authentic food. The guy running it was very friendly and helped us order. Don’t expect table service, just a lovely casual place to eat, with good food and reasonably priced! Definitely recommend.

No menu, you serve yourself the drinks. The food was excellent. Unfortunately it is dirty. However, the owner (and cooker) is nice and friendly.

If they cared to invest the time to advertise an opening closing time maybe someone else won't waste a wall across town.

It happened to us too, we knocked and nothing happened. We were about to leave but then suddenly the door opened and Freddi welcomed us and invited us in!
