Very nice food, absolutely amazing setting. Set in a Dervish monastery, the interiors are beautiful. We had dinner on the flagged patio, on heavy carved wooden benches under beautiful awnings. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The greeter gave us a mini-tour, with discussions of the murals and artifacts.

After having a business lunch for 6 people we weren't allowed to pay with credit card. View the location of the place, it suppose to go downtown to the nearest ATM, get the money and then go back to the restaurant. Service very poor. Some of the dishes were OK - some -standard Bulgarian cuisine that you can get for... More

The food we had was fairly good. I had the trout and my fiancé and the "Bulgarian Specialty." The atmosphere was very traditional and really gives you a feel for the old part of the city. The service was very slow.

We had a delightful late lunch on a warm sunny day in late October. There waiter was very helpful with suggestions and seemed to enjoy practicing his English. We enjoyed the grape leaves as well as a wonderful Bulgarian salad.

The restaurant is located in very nice surroundings and the design is interesting. The service is very efficient for big groups of guests. There is the choice to sit outside. The food is not what I expected and the portions of the main dish are very small. The baklava must be the worst I ever tested; it didn't look fresh... More

The restaurant is in good location if you don't need taxi.. The food was OK. The only big problem was that they served us after 2 hours waiting time. They have only one cook, that is doing everything.

This is a very large place; we dined outdoors on a lovely evening. The food was delicious traditional Bulgarian cuisine. There were some different menu items---Thracian salad----delicious! The lamb was yummy; good Bulgarian wine. A nice view of Plovdiv from the terrace.

Excitedly we thought to re- visit this old Plovdiv institution with 5 other friends and their 2 children. And were so saddened and beyond disappointed. Early Friday evening and hardly anyone around- not even staff!We made our way to what used to be a glorious garden. Sad again. Broken plant pots and dust/durt covered tables. Staff appeared to give us... More

It's a bit of a trek up the hill but the description in The Lonely Planet (which said it was open on a monday) and comments on here made it sound irresistible. So we were suprised to be greeted by a grumpy bouncer type bloke who laughed in our faces "we're closed" when we asked for a table.
