The restaurant is a little out of the centre, but easily reachable on foot. Spacious rooms, very good food - grills, lutenitsa, salads. Service was a bit slow, considering there were few customers.

Visited here with my partner on the recommendation of a tour guide. It's a little off the beaten track, but worth the trip. The place was full of a good mix of locals and tourists, but the friendly English-speaking staff found us a table. Excellent,...More

If you are looking for a restaurant with local and delicious food, this is the place to go. Try the aubergine and "liutenitsa" dips, while as for a main course the Katino meze and the lamb roast have always been my favorites. From the dessert...More
