The duck liver is great. The calf tongue is superb, the main courses are carefully cooked to perfection. The wine list is very good and the service was flawless. I absolutely recommend it.

Lovely setting in the only remaining traditional inn in Veliko Tărnovo. Thoroughly enjoyed the food - tongue with pearl onion (best dish I’ve had this year), calamari, ship ska salad followed by sea bass and sous vide pork knuckle (beautifully soft).
