The restaurant is set in a lovely garden area,with candles and lanterns. The food was very good, we had two salads which were very large, and then we had the lamb cooked in an earthenware dish for 5 hours. it was all very good, although the lamb leg, had most of the meat taken off! We did not expect a whole leg of lamb, but we did expect more meat than we got. at the end of the meal a complimentary brandy is brought to the table with brandy glass warmers, very nice touch!

The only real downside to this restaurant is that we had an extremely pushy waiter, who pointed to the most expensive items on the menu and ditto with the wine list!

The courtyard is beautiful. The number of dishes is impressive, from salads to BBQ meat to Bulgarian specialities. The beer was great and home made. There are special prices at lunch: one main dish, bread and dessert for 4 lev!

Beautifully decorated restaurant, very well visited by foreigners and good food. Relatively pricey for Bulgarian standards though -- good service, comprehensive menu and complimentary Cognac. Misclassified Cava and Sekt for Champagne though.

The atmosphere is nice, but for a traditional Bulgarian restaurant they could do a bit more. The prices are a bit high for not offering a live show or traditional singers etc.
