Great atmosphere, antique air. The only issue is that they had mistaken my order. Otherwise, good food and the service was pleasant. English as much as you need to order. The prices are average.

Had a good lunch here. Good but not great. Pork and lamb. The meat was decent but it lacked flavor. The sauces were nice and the garnishes good (liked the bolletus sauce). The house wine was really bad though, don't go for it.

The food and the service is great but unfortunately the restaurant was almost empty, then the atmosphere was not pleasant. Especially the food was delicious and very different than traditional Bulgarian kitchen.

Very nice place in the historic center of Veliko Tărnovo. Crowded at times so reservations needed at times. Both romantic and a family place with quite good wine selection and fancy food. Recommended as it stands out from the usual Veliko restaurants and taverns.
