“Great Food in Veliko Turnovo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2008

We have not stayed at the hotel, but we have eaten in the restaurant of the Hotel Gurko many times. The food is traditional and wholesome, which is as it should be in Bulgaria. There are no pretenses to be fine or fancy - just good food and good value. We have tried many other restaurants in Veliko Tarnovo, and find we return back to the Hotel Gurko -- since few others are as good. Recommendations: try the trout, or (if weather is cold) the traditional meat hotpot (kvarma), or the standby of a kebabche. Of course, the shopska salate is good. But the menu (also in English) is extensive, so there are many other choices. The interior is nice, views are excellent. Sometimes cigarette smokers are bothersome (the non-smoking laws in Bulgaria are never enforced), but it is much better here than many other restaurants, and if you go early you will beat the smokers. It is worth it, this is a true gem in Veliko Tarnovo,
