Small menu with amazing food and a great selection of wines. Maybe the best restaurant in Sofia. I had the duck breast, it was amazing! So nicely presented as well. We were a party of 4 and everyone enjoyed their food. Will go there again for sure.

Outstanding food quality. Fine wine list. Very good and friendly service. I absolutely recommended it. You will feel like in France. Three courses are about 30 Euros.

Very nice and cosy place. Great cuisine and wine! Fresh, seasonal, typical French food. Various daily menus! The only disadvantage is the lack of garden! But definitely one of the best restaurants in Sofia!

We came across this restaurant on tripadvisors top 30 restaurants list in Sofia and as it had lots of great reviews, we wanted to try it out. We had seen that the restaurant stopped serving food at 10pm so we're quite hopeful when we turned up at around 9.50pm. The staff were very welcoming, still happy to serve us food... More
