Lonely Planet review
With a curious name that literally means ‘at the manufacturer’s place’, this somewhat posh restaurant in the courtyard of the Hotel National Palace serves an extensive range of good Bulgarian dishes and features bland live pop music.
There’s seating indoors, outdoors and (when there’s enough of a crowd) in an atmospheric 18th-century house next door. The restaurant’s prices are relatively steep, though the food is good, with the roast lamb being downright succulent.
