Bulgarian traditional cuisine: very good food & service

Great restaurant, offering us our own room (most customers prefer the courtyard terrace, but for two families it was great to know the kids could run around without upsetting anyone). Food delicious and generous portions.

It was very quiet when we visited for lunch with Bulgarian friends who were very embarrassed about the service received from the waitress. The food was average but generous portions. Perhaps the standards would be better on a busy lunchtime?

When I saw that place on tripadvisor I thought I have to bisit it. We had a great disappointment because it was full, but we managed to take a table. The saff was very impolite and lazy. The food is awful, not even close to traditional.. So commercial! We took chicken and lamb soups ... Didn't like them at all.... More

Here you can have a nice lunch or dinner in a good old-fashioned, folk ambience. The waiters will make you feel special with their kind, friendly and fast service. The menu is abundant in salads, starters and various dishes which can satisfy every taste. You have to try the specialties but keep in mind that the portions are quite big... More

Yes, I must admit I'm biased. I was born in Tryavna. Still, having lived for many years abroad, every time I return there I enjoy the old streets, the architecture, and of course the local restaurants. Balabanovata kashta is one of the best - excellent food, fantastic service, reasonable prices - what more could you which for?

I was determined to eat somewhere recommended and this was one of only two places in Trjavna with Tripadvisor reviews. As it was out of season, the village and restaurant were really quiet, which for me added quite a bit of charm, like you had everything to yourself. Anyway, I ordered the chicken spindles as it seemed to be a... More
