we ordered the Shopska Salata, lamb soup, cheese bread,baked beens, roasted lamb and grilled lamb. All were absolutly delisious!!! The only (big) downside is the band of local players wich moves from table to table. The band was rather annoying, didnt even play the song we wanted them to (they played a Jewish prayer song instead of the bulgarian song... More

As always, great food in such an amazing old mehana in old Bansko. Really worth a visit to see the real Bansko away from the ski zone. The only negative is the table to table live music is intrusive to conversation and will put me off going back.

15 min walk from gondola. The food is great. The price is good. The staff is friendly. Don't be lazy, go there it worth it! (especially compared to the bad food in the center of the town)

The food here was delicious, especially the sharing lamb plate. The worst part about the place was that we had to pay a band to play us music, we had a photo taken with a weird looking actor which they then attempted to make as buy the photo of. Also, they tried to sell us caricature pictures and souvenirs. We... More

The food is good quality. The service is terrible. We have received some over burned plates and we just complained to the waiter. After our complain he has started to shout on us and arguing. He was very aggressive and shouting that that is it and that we have to pay for this... I can't understand how such restaurant could... More

The stuff is totally not polite. We ordered some mountain mushrooms on grill they brought overburned black coal of pieces. We complaint about them. They not only did not replaced it, he said that we will pay for them without any excuse. The place is overrated and is way too much expensive. Prices are least double than any comparing normal...

Very enjoyable experience! Great vibe, tasty food, nice decor - pretty much everything one can ask from a mehana. A lamb soup and traditional lamb dish with rice and potatos were simply amazing. Other dishes didn't stand out, but were quite ok. Would highly recommend!

Local food served in big size. Good taste. The house wine (red) is really good, makes you feel happy :) The srrvoce is good and efficient. I have been in other restaurants in the village and this looks the best for local food. Live music, tha band plays from table to table looking for tips. Thats life :)

We had the shopska salad and homemade bread muffin (a must have) to start. For main we shared the pork knuckle. The knuckle was one of the best I had here and the accompaniments were ok (fresh home cooked chips and shredded cabbage). I prefer the knuckle with the skillet cooked vegetables and rich gravy personally. Service was inattentive, slow... More
