Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We looked for this restaurant after having one or two rather mediocre meals nearby. I'm so glad we did, it is a bit off the main street but not difficult to find. The staff are really friendly, particularly Kirena, who gave us such a warm...welcome and was so helpful and charming. With wonderful eclectic decor and modern furniture it is so comfortable you immediately feel relaxed. The restaurant is spotlessly clean and the food is superb, every dish is cooked freshly and with real attention to combining ingredients and spices that deliver delicious flavours. I can particularly loved the Beef Stroganoff and the Grilled Prawns, if you like desserts thier home made cheescake is sublime and nearly enough for two. Best restaurant in Nessebar and excellent value for money, one of the highlights of our holiday, it deserves to be busy every night.More

Comfortable charming restaurant, lovely attentive staff. We ate here 4 times over a 2 week period and were never disappointed. Best food in Nessabar. The cat mentioned in other reviews was there on one occasion but was not a problem. Not overly easy to find...but more than worth the effort. Loved it.More

If you're looking to experience some truly wonderful contemporary cuisine in Nessebar, this is the place to go. I can't overstate how much I loved this place. We stayed for just one week in Nessebar and came back three times in that week to work...our way through most of the menu. The place is lovely - eclectic, modern furniture, great music (think 6music if you're from the UK) and they have a beautiful one-eyed cat called Odin who you may get to meet if you're lucky. Our fantastic waitress Kirena was able to make great recommendations in English and we tried and loved everything we had. The food is unpretentious but made with the absolute confidence of someone who knows exactly what they are doing. Flavours are balanced and just spectacular. Going here felt like pushing the boat out but actually it's still great value compared to prices in the UK. Main and dessert with drinks for two came to around 70 Lev. Do yourself a favour - it's about a minute from White Rose which always has a queue and isn't half as good as this. A real gem.More

Just two years ago, I frequented this restaurant regularly and left with glowing reviews. However, my recent return was a far cry from those positive experiences. Previously known for reasonable prices and high-quality fare, this time I encountered a different story. Prices had skyrocketed, with...an Aperol Spritz and a slice of Napoleon cake both setting me back 15lev. Even a basic espresso was an inflated 4 lev. Adding to the frustration, certain pricey items like the Napoleon cake weren't even on the menu. This lack of transparency contradicts consumer rights, as guests should always be informed about non-standard prices. Unfortunately, the food quality had also taken a nosedive. Previously fresh calamari now appeared frozen and tasteless. The once-flavorful salmon was dry and lackluster, indicating potential freezing and mishandling. Service standards had also slipped. Despite the restaurant being nearly empty, my group waited extensively after the main course to order dessert, a clear service lapse. Furthermore, the payment process was uncomfortable, with a separate tip machine offering preset options from 10% upwards, or no tip. This coercive approach made tipping feel obligatory. Regrettably, I'm left with no choice but to share this disappointing experience. My current encounter pales in comparison to the delightful memories of the past. Spending around 80€ on subpar, frozen food is simply unacceptable. It's my hope that the restaurant addresses these issues promptly to regain its previous reputation.More

A very sweet “boutique” type restaurant with a great welcoming atmosphere. The staff were great and the food was delicious. Could see why they are rated so highly.

The place is lovely, quiet and with lovely music/atmosphere. The food was delicious. We had a tomato soup and Cesar salad with shrimps / and cheesy pancakes for desert. The pancakes were really little in size (but enough pieces in a portion) and surprisingly made...actually out of cheese - but they were delicious 🤤 The location is a bit weird, between apartment buildings and off the main road a bit. It's not hard to find, but if you want dinner with a view, the view part will be missing.More

This is our first time in Nessebar and we’re glad we found this place. It’s a little off the beaten track but well worth a visit! The food was delicious, very fresh and good portion sizes. The house wine was beautiful too. The setting is...lovely - pretty decor and a cool bubble wall. There was also a live singer when we visited, who was fab and added to the relaxing ambiance. We can’t say enough about the service here! The staff were very friendly and attentive. Thank you for a great evening!More

A great experience. The restaurant is run by a lovely, kind and modest family. A magical atmosphere, a cozy haven. Great decor, exceptional attention to detail. A place unlike any other. We got there by accident and we absolutely fell in love. The food is...top notch, stylishly presented and beautifully seasoned. On our first visit, we ordered carbonara and lasagne and were delighted. I'm a lasagne fanatic and this one is just perfect. We knew we would be back the next day. During the second visit, we found that we would put them to a more difficult test. We ordered liver salad, risotto with three cheeses and saffron, salmon with sweet potatoes and black angus steak. And guess what happened? They did it again! They charmed us completely. The risotto was creamy and the rice had the perfect consistency. The liver salad was delicious. The fish was juicy and done perfectly. The steak was medium as ordered and the beef tasted great. On the top of that - the whole stay was made pleasant by the talkative and charming one-eyed cat Odin, a wonderful furry fellow. You must visit this place! It is worth every moment!More
