Great food, nice service and pleasant atmosphere.
The menu is very limited - only a few dishes that are being changed on a daily basis and posted on the wall. That's why the food is so fresh and delicious. A little bit pricey for Bulgaria (20 leva for a main course with beer). However it worth it.

Small, nice restaurant with very good service and decent prices. Excellent value for money. The food is always good. The menu is small, all things are freshly cooked and delicious. Variety of typical bulgarian breakfast options - banitsa ( cheese pie) a very good type is the bread banitsa they bake kus-kus with cheese and sugar ( as we ate it back home when we were kids), mekitci ( small doughnuts) with cheese, jam and sugar. I personally believe they can make these better - more like the traditional big ones but that is my caprice only :-).
Different meals for dinner - we ate adana kebap and veal stew which were great. The service is very good, people are polite and smiling. May get noisy if more people dine inside but it is noot to big. Wasn't willing to right a very positive review because i am afraid it may turn into expat place - not that i don't like you guys but you are annoying when shouting while you eat ( british, germans and italians especially!)

We were sucked into this restaurant by the waiter to translate to us the somewhat limited menu on the black-board inside. This is the only restaurant I have ever visited that doesn’t have a regular menu to peruse! Although we had decided upon starter we were pursuaded to have a shared platter ... another mistake!

The cheapest wine was 24 euro, and with only a few dishes to choose from, this became our most expensive evening out, but we thought what the hell, you get what you pay for don’t you! Well the waiter did fillet the sea-bass for the girls, but many bones remained. The roast potatoes were cold, and I mean cold, not just warm! We complained, the waiter pulled a face and explained this is the way in Bulgaria ... I don’t think so! He did change one plate, then bring an extra side dish of hot potatoes for another, so it was only me who ended up cold potato! The rest of the meal was just warm, on cold plates.

The meal was the worst we had in Bulgaria, and also the most expensive. On the positive side, it’s well located near the cathedral, and there are several alternative bars and restaurants nearby! I would recommend "O!" (near "The Park" pub) instead.
