Everything happens in this restaurant is in a great hurry, don't know why, because occupancy is no more than 40%, anytime, the waitters are in a great hurry when pick-up your order and when they explain the amount of your orders, on a piece of paper hand written. Oily dishes(allmost) bad looking and not tasty salads, served on a plane... More

The food and service were all kinds of good! Very friendly staff and very welcoming! This was recommended by the parking attendant (top notch guy as well) and the restaurant didn't disappoint!

Service...what to say about it, the waiter didn't even say thank you when I was paying. I ordered spaghetti bolognese - the sauce was some kind of pink liquid, nothing to do with the bolognese, the spaghetti cold. The atmosphere was like you're in Romania, not in Bulgaria. I can't believe they still have customers.

Worst bulgarian experience ever... I have never tasted such bad pizza and spaghetti bolognese.. My friend ordered chicken soup and the mousakka..also very bad. We forced ourselves to eat because we were hungry si we wanted to just leave the place. Do not recommend!

We visited Ariciu fast food ( its near Ariciu restaurant) once and we saw that the meat that should've been used to kebap had an odd colour and was left to cool off(it should be hot all the time). They didn't had most of the products from the menu, we finally ordered a chicken burger,, it was already prepared ...... More

Simple dishes. Good but not very tasty. The service was not very responsive. No outside air-conditioning. Dirty old table cloth. Dirty bathroom.

We had lunch two times there every time all the food was amazing, strongly recommend the Julienne chicken, the moussaka, the tomato soup, pizzas and the desserts (try the homemade cake), portions are huge and at great price. The best thing is the service which is sooo friendly and food is delivered very fast even when the restaurant was full.... More
