Read that this was the only French place in Sofia and that a Frenchman cooked and decided it warranted support. No regrets. A nice, light French-style room with tables far enough apart holds a bar at its rear. Aperitifs here and a very pleasant conversation about the city, the menu, cooking and the procurement of authentic ingredients with the cook/owner's very charming wife who both tends bar and waits tables. (There is no Dubonnet in Bulgaria! Take her a bottle!)
Surprisingly wide menu for a place of its size; the more so as myself and companion were the only diners until later when another pair and a four (?six - the Mercurey was finished by then) came in. Hope they are better patronised later in the week. Excellent home-made foie gras; the waitress, who had made it, said it was too salty but only a purist would agree. The livers are Bulgarian and the terrine was very authentic. Then a good rare horse steak, cooked as I wanted it. Rabbit with mustard for my companion. The 14th arondissement would not have been disgraced by this cooking. They don't serve cheese as you can't get good French cheese in Sofia; an admirable attitude. Complimentary amuse-geule desserts were provided.
£75ish for 2 including tip added, aperos, a good bottle but no sweets or coffee. Recommended.
