Ok so we’re back in the neighbourhood so a quick trip (on the train) to Tryavna. The best bit is it’s now out of the tourist season. A mooch in the excellent gallery near the centre (some of the artwork is breathtaking and eye watering...More

We were disappointed after reading the good reviews. The staff was rude and food was prepared slowly. The taste is not even close to traditional cuisine. Products are not fresh which is a disappointment since we visited in late spring. Would not come back.

The restaurant is a bit hidden, not directly by the bridge, but is absolutely worth it! Food was amazing, service was very professional and fast. Prices - absolutely fare :) Great place, we recommend it!

The interior is not remarkable, but the food was terrible. I don't remember eating such tasteless lamb ever! On top of everything - it's not cheap. I woundn't visit again.

It was very quiet when we visited for lunch with Bulgarian friends who were very embarrassed about the service received from the waitress. The food was average but generous portions. Perhaps the standards would be better on a busy lunchtime?

Great restaurant, offering us our own room (most customers prefer the courtyard terrace, but for two families it was great to know the kids could run around without upsetting anyone). Food delicious and generous portions.
