The title here is an understatement when trying to describe how bad it was. When you are a guest in a foreign country one should never overstep the boundaries of respect and politeness vis a vis your hosts. This however has been a downright bad experience. The meats were of second class quality at best. The fries weren't even simmered,... More

Went to Molerite on our last night in Bankso, not expecting anything. But the food was great. Top quality food, good desserts and nice wine selection ( not just bulgarian)

This was fabulous, very reasonable and over 2,000 bottles of wine, which they take you to choose your wine.

I have been visiting this mehana for 5-6 years now. It used to be a lot better and the waiters are not polite. The most ridiculous thing is the serving of wine over a candle. This is supposed to happen, so that you don't get residues in a carafe, but what they end up doing is getting the bottle away... More

Seriously. The roasted deer in blueberry sauce is one of the best dish we had EVER, and that is a 4 people opinion. You wont see any hustlers on the street here, since there is no need. It is that good. The place has 2 adjacent parts. A authentic Balcan tavern, and an Italian restaurant. Both are top quality. Located... More

Used to be a great place some years ago, now I found it overpriced for the portions and the quality of the food. For a typical bulgarian mehana the choices for bbq are very limited, not to mention the chocalate suffle in the menu- nothing to do with the local cusine.

The tavern was supposed to resemble and old time local tavern. Compared to other places we visited, prices were quite modern, however. Waiters tend to recommend stuff off the menu (and far more expensive), so we ended up with a mixed grill platter in the three-digit-price-range. It was mediocre, to put it kindly. But things really started to fall apart... More

I just got back from a great 5 day skiing trip in Bansko. I stayed at the iconic Hotel Kempinski and most nights ate inside the hotel in one of the 4 restaurants. One night I asked the reception about a good "mehana" in the area to try the local cuisine. I was told to try the Molerite mehana by... More

Food was good. We speak a little bulgarian and the evening started well with a female waitress. The evening was not good as we were not looked after by the waiters and they would not serve us desert

We have visited this Mehana several times over the last few years and never been disappointed. It is by far the best quality food on offer in Bansko that we have found. It was a pleasure today to take a Bulgarian friend for lunch there.
