Mehana Valevitsata is not just another one of Bankso's pizza, pan-European, and other non-distinct joints. It's one of a few places in town where you can get a more traditional selection of food and drink, in what feels like a more traditional environment not crowded and bustling with tourists. Service: attentive, polite, fast, and English-speaking, but maybe a bit heavy-handed... More

Simply one of the best restaurants in Bansko. The proof is that many locals eat there. Good, traditional cuisine at great prices. Look for the novel way that they keep their beer cool!

This is a great place to experience a local Bulgarian tavern in Bansko. The building is an old house and is decorated in the traditional Bansko village style. Service is very good and the food excellent. Mehana Valevitsata is located within a short walking distance of the cabin lift's first station, Valevitsata Tavern welcomes its guests in the Bulgarian style... More
