We were there today for and try their daily lunch menu. It was good and tasty. Prices were reasonable for BG. The waitress was friendly and nice. We absolutely recommend this place for you instead of restaurants on the sea alley.

We went here once for lunch and once for dinner, and both visits were very good. You mainly get traditional Bulgarian food and it's real tasty. We tried grilled meats, moussaka, salads and the stuffed wineleafs and enjoyed it all. The service is good and...More
