Located centrally in the city, this restaurant is a must for foodies. The waiters are friendly, and seemed passionate about food. We had no specific orders and allowed them to serve us their best items. With a free hand they really came up with nice starters, mains, wines and rakia. I'd love to come back. Note: quantity is good

I had very pleasurable experience in tasting this Serbian style cuisine with nice wine list in a very comfortable setting. The service was also excellent.

Center-center-Sofia. Close to Parliament and Alexander Nevski Cathedral. Exceptional taste of food, prepared with touch of love, Balkan taste and look. Classic contemporary interior style, complemented by a touch of retro decorations. The location is particularly suitable for business or family meetings, lunches and dinners.

I tried this restaurant with a friend . We ordered an horse steak and roasted potatoes. Everything excellent. The waitress was able to suggest a good wine too. In my opinion, there was a misproportion between amount of food and price, considering the average prices in Sofia. Anyway excellent in quality and among best choices in that area of Sofia.

Unfortunately we only had one meal in this restaurant due to limited time because the food here is excellent and the atmosphere is pleasant. The menu afforded plenty of choice and we had the veal which was so tender it was like cutting through butter and also the Serbian sausages which were extremely tasty. Service was efficient and the English... More

The most rude waitress i have ever seen! The smile is something unknown for them. We were late for 20 minutes because of traffic and they put us to the worst table of the restaurant. Totally bad! Everything!
