“Hadji Nikoli Inn”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

Hadji Nikoli Inn is a beautiful complex which offers a cafe, museum, wine house and a restaurant. Our experience was only with the restaurant, but we couldn't have been happier with our time there. The cooking is absolutely superb, a true experience for the taste buds and everything we ordered was beautifully arranged. Their wine list is great as well and there is plenty of choice, however we had the house wine which bears the name of the Inn and I would definitely recommend it.

The staff are very polite and friendly and their service - impeccable. This restaurant, which is on Georgi Rakovski street, very close to one of the main roads, is located in the Samovodska Charshia place which is a must to visit as well, full with small traditional shops and specialised food outlets, which makes the location of the restaurant perfect. The restaurant is definitely one of the best we have been in Veliko Tarnovo.

“it just feels right...”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

This place is very nice in terms of decor and setting. It is all very tasteful and not at all opulent as some high-end restaurants in the Balkans are. We were a group of 4 people in our late twenties and still we didn't feel this restaurant was too formal.
Indeed the service was very good, but friendly, warm. Each of us ordered something else and all were very good. The salmon with goat cheese was special and very good. The prices are very convenient although it might be one of the most expensive places in town :)
As minuses i would say they should have offered bread and butter

“Best food choice in town and more”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

Located in the heart of the old town (on the Georgi Sava Rakovski Street) the Hadji Nikoli Inn it's a much better choice than the crowded restaurants near-by. The service is incredible, the staff polite and classy, the building complex is one of the most impressive I've seen and the restaurant atmosphere is quite unmatched in Veliko Tarnovo.

You can get a nice meal for a decent price or go over the top with 5* dishes and great wines as well as some matures rakias (like Burgas single barrel for example). The price ranges is similar to the ones of the rest of the restaurants visited in Veliko Tarnovo.

I've tried some beed specials and they've been impressive. Also, the chicken with blue cheese is incredible...

Highliy, highliy recommended.
