This was a very picturesque restaurant in old Nessebar, with a nice view of the coast and in a very quaint setting. The food was good overall (tempura zucchini highly recommended) but I suspect not exceptional for the immediate area.
What was nice was they did stock local Bulgarian wine, which was very nice, but steer clear of the mint soda. It’s not, in fact, soda water and mint leaves but some concoction resembling fizzy mouthwash pictured below...
The service was decent throughout, however this being our first holiday using Bulgarian lev, we almost accidentally left a stingy tip. This could have been resolved in an amicable manner, however the owner was immediately all attitude and really quite rude. NOT the best tactic to get a better tip out of me buddy! Although he was correct about the amount, had he approached the situation in a more polite manner, he’d probably have gotten quite a big tip because the meal was nice. Kind of ruined all the good they’d done up till then.

Having said that, I wouldn’t actively discourage anyone from going. The food was above average, and the price was reasonable by UK standards (not sure about Bulgarian, but it is in tourist ville). The setting is hard to beat.

Came here for dinner when visiting Nessebar over the day. The food was quite nice, I had the vegetarian risotto - which wasn’t really a risotto at all but quite nice anyway. However I had to remove the shavings of cheese as they hardened as had a weird texture. My boyfriend had the mussels and some chips, which he enjoyed. Although we’re not used to such massive mussels! The service was exceptional, and Oleg was brilliant all night.
