I have not been in Bistrello since February and for me almost everything in the menu was new. I can see a lot of Asian influence in the dishes, but done in combination with some local dishes, so it gives a good experience.
The dishes themselves were quite big as portions, which made it a little bit tough to be able to try from everything recommended. For example we had no place left for deserts and we wanted to try the pancakes.

We always look for new places and experiences when we have to celebrate our Xmas parties. This year we have selected Bistrello and I'd say they have managed everything perfectly. Chef Vladimir Todorov has helped us in selecting the proper menu style and distribution trough the tables. It appeared they are offering some additional items out of their menu, such as the green cheese, which was incredible.
