The food was very nice, but I have to say the I did not have a single bad dish in Sofia, so just good as all the others.

They were playing traditional dancers first, and live music (not very traditional) later. They could have saved the live music (I don't need to listen to Shakira, really) and invite for a shot or something instead.
The waiter was not the lifeliest guy, and it was even rude for some cultural standards, maybe not for bulgarians..
The toilette did not had water and they had go after each guest to.. you know! They apologized hundreds of times for that..
Anyways, the worst was the beer was not cold!!
Food avg. good, afterwards..

Nice music and dancing was playing, food was great and portions were really big. I had dinner there with my mom, we ordered six different things (we though the dishes would be smaller), we drank water (a very big bottle for 1 euro!) and we payed only 25 euro for both of us, tips included. Since we are Brazilian and wanted a taste of the local food and atmosphere, it was really great, I totally recommend it.

Me and my friends visitted this authentic bulgarian resraurant , and i loved it from the moment i entered , the personel were verry polite and energetic , the food was excelent on every level delicious and well cooked , a little high on price , but worth it on every account ... If you happen to find yourself in sofia ,and are looking for a place to have a good meal , and relax , Chevermeto is the right place to be ... And to leave the best part for last , they have a programe that includes singers and dancers who performe tradicional bulgarian dances that will help you interact with the Bulgarian culture

After reading the overall comments in tripadvisor about this restaurant i was expecting something totally different. I agree about the fact that it is a traditional restaurant and maybe a nice atmosphere, but in the end what counts is the food and the service. The food on one hand was nothing special. Small portions, no flavours, nothing interesting. The service forgot to give me my change back and i had to wait for 15 minutes and then go to ask it back. Totally not worth it.

I very much enjoyed the whole experience, as not only the setting and entertainment where good, also the food is worth tasting. They offer a wide selection of rakia (Bulgarian spirit), so you can become an expert about this in one night.
