A nice traditional atmosfaire at the center of the town, but Tull there. The prices are unexpected high, the portions are small and you must wait long time for your order. For my opinion is a waste of time and money.

Went with two friends for dinner: had to wait 1h and a half to eat, and the dishes were peculiar but only OK. So, it's expensive and not really worth it.

We found this restaurant from trip advisor. They have English menu so that there should be no problem for ordering. The food is Bulgarian style and very tasty. Their homemade bread is totally worth to try. We went there twice during our 2-day visiting! It...More
