Entering the restaurant "Hajidraganovi izby" you find yourself in an atmosphere of old wine cellars with stone walls and barrels next to the walls.

In the making of the "Hadji Dragan cellars" lies the legend of Hadji Dragan - the shepherd who organized the construction of the beautiful houses from Koprivshtitsa, Zheravna, Bansko and Melnik in the center of Sofia - today restaurant "Hadjidraganovi houses". Wine collected from different parts of Bulgaria matured in his cellars. Hadji Dragan's cellar was famous, where you could find wine for every taste.

Silence, the smell of old wine and coolness greeted the guests. In the twilight of the gas lamps, you could see the barrels, arranged in long and slender rows, and on the dusty shelves with straw lay meekly the bottles of selected wine.

“Hadjidragan cellars” offer typical Bulgarian national cuisine with dishes prepared on the stove, oven and grill, which every Bulgarian can be proud of. The menu contains selected Bulgarian speci alties - Karabunar salad, Hadji salad, Melnishka salad, hajdushka grilled on a wooden plate, lamb in the Gergovski oven, Komit sofra for six, mixed hajdushka, Tabietli sofra, Balkan grill for four, Chirpan keremida, klopanitsa, homemade biscuit cake, Turkish delight pie, etc.
