The restaurant is a little on the expensive side for Sofia, but it is worth it for the view. Not much carisma in the restaurant itself. Delicious food.

This is a well known Sofia restaurant for many decades. It is located in a quiet quarter opposite to a park. specializes in local Bulgaian food (grill, salads, pies...). Folklore music at evenings.

You won't find this or even hear about it unless you know someone in Sofia or your hotel tells you about it. That being said it's a 5 Lev taxi ride and worth it. It is off the main tourist areas in a very pleasant setting. We had a variety of appetizers and main courses. All were very good and priced as many things are in Sofia - far less than you would pay in most European cities (western or eastern). If you have a couple nights in Sofia make this one of your stops to have dinner.

We were taken to this restaurant by our Bulgarian hosts who said it was a famous Sofia restaurant that served authentic and traditional food. I guess it helped that we had locals with us who could interpret the menu but it was also written in English so you could figure it out.

Start with one of the many types of salad, they are fresh and delicious and be adventurous. The main meals tend to be meat based but there is a good selection of vegetarian dishes as well. I had a superb meal of stuffed chicken breasts that were fabulous. My colleague had the meat BBQ (meat platter) and this looked pretty impressive too.

Drink the local brandy that comes in small glass jars - but beware the headache the next day!

The ambiance is great, rustic and open air if you want it but also tables under cover and indoors. Great value for money and we fed 9 people for 225 BGN (c£90)

Home environment, but poor hygiene. Food is tasteless. It is very hot. Ventilation does not work. Service is slow. Why do these people work??
