We were there recently and I had a great time. The food was delicious, service was prompt and attentive;our water gave us some good recommendations.They offer great variety of rakia (bulgarian version of grape or plum brandy) and have an extensive wine list. The atmosphere is very cool and takes you back in the old communistic times.
One have to have a reservation however, because the place gets crowded in the evenings.

Make sure you make a reservation before going to this place otherwise even on week days they will say that the place is full at 6pm even though you can spot some free tables. They didn’t make an effort to apologise for the situation. Just asked for reservation and sent us away. Guess tourists aren’t much welcome so bring some locals, might help.
