The food was excellent. We shared a starter of tomato salad, We had the pork ribs which was tender and falling off the bone. We also had the... More

This was the second time we visited this restaurant and it was excellent just like the first time. The staff is just amazing, very kind, fast and correct, with great knowledge on service etiquette.

The food is good, and also the service. The atmosphere pleasant. BE AWARE: most of the dishes are prepared after the order. Give yourself plenty of time. Make sure you ask for some auderves that are prepared quickly, other wise you will wait for a long time, before tasting any food.

The interior is nice, the food is great, the prices are normal. We were there few times and we had some delay of the order once because the waiter for our thable was new and unexpirienced. But the restaurand is very good. Often there are bonus deserts when you have lunch there.

We organised a meeting for 45 in this restaurant and we had a great time. The food was delicious, I did not hear any complaints. The staff was polite and helpful. I will return there for sure. They even have their own DJ who made the evening even more joyful

The personal was amazing, really kind from the moment of the reservation. They called me back minutes after sending a request for reservation over email. When we arrived they had made a table with special decoration of flowers for us. Food was delicious and plenty, every part of each dish was very well thought of. The atmosphere is delightful and...

We had couple of lunches at the places and it was all lovely! They offer traditional + Mediterranean cuisine. Only issue we had was we had to wait for a lava cake for bit longer, but the cake was done perfectly! Check the lunch menu - traditional and delicious!

Not far from the ancient roman stadium in Philippopolis. We overwhelmed this cute little place with a tour bus load of people. Outside was simple, but inside was very cute and graphic. It is a small restaurant and not prepared for large groups. The staff was extremely polite, but because they were so swamped, bills got mixed up and several... More
