“Cosy little bistro”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

A lovely little find on a back street in the heart of Sofia. Classic French cuisine, something a little different for Sofia. Service was good, unhurried and relaxed. Very intimate setting.

“Classy bistro”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

it was like private dining room again when we had dinner. Amazing first course, only figs. Food was excellent and the size of portions was good - not too huge like in many restaurants. Dessert was excellent.

“Best Frenchie in Sofia - full stop”
Reviewed July 18, 2013

Bistro style restaurant run by a great couple. Food is v much French fare - difficult in BG as suppliers are local and hard to find. L'Étranger has a good wine list too - not many table so booking required
