I have been in this restaurant in March 2018.The tastes are very good and close to Tukish kitchen.The potions are relatively big to other a'lacart restaurants in the city.The service was very slow after you order.If you are too hungry, please ask for the quick starters.There are bigger common plates for groups which look like very delicious.The atmosphere is amazing , you think that you eat in a farm-hall.The prices are effordable.I recommend this restaurant.

We went there to taste different types of cold cuts and some Bulgarian red wines. Very nice setting, in a ideal location close by to the largest pedestrian shopping street of Sofia.

Definitely the Bulgarian restaurant to test in Sofia to enjoy all the typical dishes. The meat is delicious and vegetables amazing. The atmosphere is just exceptionnel mainly for the diners and weekends when the Bulgarian musicians come to play. We recommend 100% the place
