This was a small, local place, filled with character. When we got there, there was only one other table. Initially, we didn't want to eat here, since the Eagles "Hotel California," was blaring away. ("I did NOT come to Bulgaria to listen to the Eagles!" And, if I may be so frank, the Eagles were a tiny bit better than all the cheesy Euro-electro forced down my ears all the time!)

The service was slow and nice. The food, as most in Bulgaria, was good. The prices, reasonable. What's not to like.

Favorite Dish: The rabbit dish (I can't remember exactly what it was called), which was stewed with onions and other spices, was very good. We also had the 'gondola,' of pork, chicken, and some cheese. Ok, but not as good as my dish.

As became a happy habit in Bulgaria, we started with a delightful (they are always deligtful) shopska salad, which was just about as good as any other we had in Bulgaria.
