Eat here whilst skiing last week. Great honest food and good prices. Meal for four cost about £50 for both food and drink. Slightly off the main drag so great for families.

I've been here during my holiday and it is awesome. The staff is really friendly and will do its best so satisfy all your needs. The food is just as awesome as the staff. I personally tried the grilled chicken and I really enjoyed it. It is not very popular since it's not located on the main street. I advise... More

We've been coming to Borovets for 4 years and in all of our visits we've never really found anything like this. It's a lovely place, with a warm reception and extremely attentive service. My wife is dairy allergic and the owners are also the chefs and we're able to cater to her needs. Our only wish is that we had... More

Please do not trust the rest of the reviews for that restaurant! The waiter could hardly speak any English and half the dishes on the menu were not available! the general atmosphere had nothing original! The dishes were decent but really nothing memorable... really a disappointment
