If you are looking for local cuisine this is a perfect choise. Well cooked food, variety in the menu, value for money. Cozy and friendly environment with traditional decoration. During our visit in Plovdiv we visit twice: once we had selection of tranditional and the second we have grill food. Both were very delicius!
