3rd time, 3 times super satisfied. I had dinner twice and lunch once, in two days. The first night I had the inconvenience of having a bored waiter who "knew them all", was not receptive at all. Someone in the group asked for mashed potatoes...instead of french fries, he said he couldn't, without even asking in the kitchen. Fortunately, the food was just as good, perhaps the best food in Veliko Tarnovo. for a few days, the menu of this restaurant has been changed to an autumn one and I tell you, it is fabulous. I recommend baked lamb, baked squid, cheese-based appetizers, and for dessert, necessarily lava cake with orange jam. In fact, I am convinced that the whole menu is fabulous. Aaa! I was going to forget, don't forget to make a reservation, it's worth it!More

The food is amazing! I suggest to book a table as this place is usually packed with people. Everything we ordered was amazing! The waiter was kind, he paid attention to our needs and he made the experience incredible. He speaks perfect English and understand...everything. He also recommended us dishes because we didn't know what to order. Now, the food had a great taste, it was well done. Also, the deserts were incredibly tasty. They also we're careful about Covid precaution. All the waiters wore masks and gloves.More

It's the third time we came here, always a pleasure. It has a bohemian air and the portions were very big, especially the largest Calzone I've ever seen. The pork fillet fried in butter was delicious and the potatoes with thime also. But, the Pizza...Calzone was a perfect dish, with spicy bites of chicken, lots of mozarella and blue cheese and ham. Beautiful place on the patio, although I love the interiors.More

We went to this restaurant because of the good reviews, and we were not disappointed: we had a delicious lunch/dinner. The main course (unfortunately I don't remember its name, it's their special dish) was extremely tasty, all flavors were perfectly combined. The lemonade was delicious,...we had 2 litres :))) But the "piece de resistance" were the desserts... I had a raw-vegan cake, and my husband a Russian speciality. Both of them were divine! I can say they were the best cakes I have eaten in the last past years (and I don't exaggerate).More

I higly recommend! Food was delicios, the staff super friendly and overall experience amazing, the restaurant is cozy and super nice. All that we've order was super good and is vegetarian friendly as well, they have a dedicated part of the menu for vegetarians. We've...ordered a marguerita and it was like the Italian one. You cannot visit Veliko without eating here!More

The best food for all tastes and diets. Great setting, friendly and caring staff, and if we get back to the food - WOW, that's the place! It is almost enough to stay in, and feel the smell that is filling the premises, but not...quite enough :) All we ate was wonderful, and we're not gonna visit any other restaurant after today's meal at Shtastlivetsa ❤️More

I have not seen that they would have on menu specially listed gluten free options. You would need to ask and select something like salad with grilled meat or so.
