I had the worstest experience in Bulgaria! First, the waiters were ok-ish but bored, menu has few things and the prices are too big for what they offer. We ordered one burger, one dish with shrimps and black rice, two beers. Burger was the worst...I have ever eat; not even meat from big supermarket, the bun was like the cheapest..horrible! The burger was ready too fast, the other dish was ready after 45 min.. Burger 11bgn Non alcoholic beer 5.8bgn Shrimp dish 18bgn Beer 4.8bgn Just don't go there!More

Having a good view is the only good thing in this restaurant. Would not recommend even to my worst enemy. Everything is from the day before.

The fish was probably frozen from the local supermarket same as the vegetables and served more or less cold

The restaurant has a great location in the old city with a beautiful see view but apart of this, everything else was terrible. We waited 15 minutes just someone to bring us the menu. Salad with quinoa contained everything else except actually quinoa. Risotto with...squid was actually boiled rise with vegetables with actually only 4 circles of squid over it and it was 15lv . All meals we ordered were overpriced in comparison to their quality and taste. Soda sparkling soft drink was with brand Derby that is a local and really not high quality drink that you can never oder even in an ordinary restaurant while the price was as you are drinking Coca-cola sparkling beverage. Toilet was dirty, soap was mixed with water , toilet paper was missing and we had to ask to provide it. All the time we had the impression that we pay for nothing. It is pity that this restaurant in this beautiful area , visited by tourists from all over the world has this low quality of food and service.More

Me and my partner went there because the other restaurant nearby ("Emona") was full and we were hungry. The place was half empty when we arrived and we were expecting quick service. The waiter (a boy with a lip percing) was incredibly slow throughout our...whole stay in the restaurant. I asked for a spoon to take my medicine and even though there were still empty tables in his area and the place was not full at all he brought me the spon after more than 30 minutes. But that wasn't the problem. We somehow got our drinks in that time space of half an hour but we did not have any food served ( had ordered salads and main dishes) in more than 1 hour and a few minutes (we were calculating the time because we got really annoyed). I waved my hand a couple of times to make the waiter notice our table and answer if we'd get our dinner soon because we were ready to pay and just continue our dinner somewhere else. He ingnored us until a lady came around and was carrying a plate of cold smelly pork ribs and my salad that was including fish and quinoa but I am not sure if that was a fish at all... We were furious but ate what we got served because we were extremely tired and done with the night. The food was unimaginably terrifying. The whole experience was horrible. Never again. Please do not go there.More

The service was ok, BUT the food was extremely disgusting. The burger on the street was 10 times better. And on the top of everything, I would like to express my disappointment of the prices, it doesn’t match price quality. Never ever come here, you...will waist time and money resources!

Stay away! From this place. Yes, the place is trump, seaview, The Old Nessebar, all the cases .. But be careful with the menu! There are some items that you can order without knowing the price, and then they will count it like you never...dreamed of. The menu does not include, for example, draft wine. And, BTW, it quite pricy: price is twice high the average price along the coast. We asked the administration to show us the price list, to which we were told "there is no wine in the menu, it just should have been announced by the waiter." 🤷🏼‍♀️ Plus to everything in the bill (written by hand, btw), they contributed a tip, which, as it turned out in the conversation, was OPTIONAL. But this sum was included in the total amount of the check. My honest and non emotional opinion: Service in the restaurant - 0. Communication - 0. Food - average. The location is good. My advice: for enjoy go to places where the rating is 5, there are lower prices and mussels are tastier. And wine is in menu!More

We came across this place in error, heading for another. What a mistake I made!! I'll start by saying, the only saving graces were the very attentive and friendly waiter who, if our experience is anything to go by, has taken a lot of flack...this season, and lastly the view. The tango was flat, the food putrid and well overpriced, the burger raw, the (possibly) boiled, frozen and reheated chicken sickening and inedible, the chips cold, the satsa limp, the salad tasteless and, the lasagne didn't even arrive! We asked for a high chair for the little one, the two presented were in disrepair and absolutely minging. To top it all, when we returned the food, the top-hatted chef came out of his grotty hole in an attempt to intimidate ... He didn't! The one star is for the waiter, the view, and the marginally reduced bill for the massively overpriced material presented as food. Visit at your peril!!More
