We were looking forward to eating here having read the reviews but were disappointed to find that the restaurant was not only closed it looked like it had gone out of business. The place had an air of dereliction about it. A sign posted on the door may have explained more but unfortunately neither of us can read Bulgarian. Suggest... More

Fairly friendly but very efficient service and for the first time in Bulgaria, our food all arrived at once, much to the delight of our teenagers! Kids menu very good value, good size portion and for only 9 BGN included a drink and pancake... More

I remember eating here years ago - good food but this time - closed. The section that is visible from the street (Dondukov) showed tables with a very thick layer of dust on them, Hope someone soon finds it open.

I was in Pri Yafata few days ago, have a fairly varied menu, many varieties grilled a lot of types of wine, but not beer bottle only draft. Prices are ok.

I was here with a work group, and our host paid, so I'm not sure about prices, but the menu looked very reasonable. The host ordered huge platters of various salads for the hole tables, followed by even larger platters of meat, and lots of bread. The food was great, and we had a wonderful time.

This is a good place for people new to Sofia. It is close to some of the great buildings and monuments and within walking distance of a couple of Metro stations. The menu is distinctive and traditional. The roast lamb was fabulous. Good wine, good music and a great place to go with family and friends.

Very good restaurant in heart of Sofia. The staff speak a little in english, but it shouldn't be a problem because menus are illustrated. The food and Zagorka beer was delicious. Recommended for cheap and tasty lunch.

This is a safe place for tourists to try 'local' cuisine. Food was tender and flavourful. Wine was good and the service was fine. Lovely old three story house that has been converted into a restaurant. Salads were not as varied as in other places, but were fine. Prices were a little higher than they would have been for similar... More

A restaurant very close to important tourist stops in Sofia (e.g. Cathedral Saint Alexandar Nevski is 10 mins walk away). We had good food, reasonable prices and good service.
