Wonderful food - my husband said it was the best food he tasted in his life, great atmosphere, nice staff. During our dinner, it was the restaurant's first anniversary and we received free cake and two bottles of wine - I thought it was a very nice gesture.

This restaurant really exceeded my expectations. The staff were fantastic. The meals all arrived at the same time, which in so many restaurants through eastern europe is not always the case, and the food was fantastic. Prices were very reasonable aswell

The food was just delightful; the salads were fresh and zesty and our mains were fantastic as well. The menu has a really great range - especially as one of us is a keen vegetable feaster aka vegetarian who silently suffered through most of Bulgaria - and can accommodate all sorts of diets, which can be a lil hard overseas at times! The chicken with emmental and bacon was, in ways, similar to dishes I’ve had back home in New Zealand, however the seasoning and execution was decidedly Bulgarian...

Very good restaurant, almost certainly one of the best in Plovdiv, the meal I had there yesterday was excellent and very reasonabley priced. Service was also above average, decore was interesting. Will be going there again soon, super place to take people new to this fine city.

We had a spot on the terrace. A bit windy, but the waiter did not hesitate to bring me a blanket, very nice! Good service, fast and friendly. Spoke decent English. Slightly more expensive than other local restaurants, but still cheap for Western standards. The food was excellent. I had a vegetable risotto and it was amazing. Fresh vegetables and good portion. Wine tasted good as well. Smart to make a reservation. When we came the place was full.

Food to die for! Reasonable prices, but portions are not so big. Fast and friendly service.

I went there Saturday night after walk around, it was raining and we were looking for a comfortable place. We had a salad as starter, chicken julienne and pork and main dish and finished with a delicious dessert. Their service is very good, the place is cosy and comfortable. We will certainly go there again!

GORGEOUS food in lovely setting just off main shopping street in Plovdiv. Stilyvan our attentive waiter made sure we were well looked after. Two of us shared Smokini ( figs) salad with Roquefort Cheese, Strawberry Salad with sultanas and olive ciabatta bread. I had Tagliatelli with bacon, Roquefort and Rocket. We both treated ourselves to homemade Fig Ice cream with crunchy bits! Reasonable price, good service and very relaxing experience. I highly recommend trying the out of the ordinary menu...
