“The worse service in Bansko ever”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

Disaster!!! Total disaster is the service in Baryakova Tavern.
Service in the tavern, hotels, spa and so is the most criticized in Bansko. In the ski resort there are nice hotels, delicious food,but the service... In Baryakova Tavern service is the only thing down. But this is enough for me not to eat there. The waitres are very rude and force the clients to take the worst table first and wanted to arrange you whereever they wanted to put you. This is totally unacceptable. there are more yhan 100 taverns in Bansko so you dont need to go in Baryakova Tavern

“You won't leave here hungry - only hungry to visit again!”
Reviewed August 10, 2013

Super atmosphere and excellent service! We took advice from waiter that the pork knuckle for 1 person, was enough for 2! He was right especially if you had the Aubergine/tomato purée starter with fresh bread, which was excellent. One of our party had the lamb, which could also have fed 2!
We will visit again for the price, quality, portions and varied menu!

“excellent service & food”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

The waitress was cheerful, pleasant & helpful. We shared a vegetable sache with a chicken skewer & my husband had a chicken soup as well. The portions are generous & the prices very reasonable for a rustic meal that was just as it should have been.

“Best in town”
Reviewed June 13, 2013

By far one of the best and most consistent mehanas in town in my opinion. And they understand the concept of starters coming before mains and chips coming at the same time as main course (quite rare in Bansko!). Highly recommended, great food, good prices and service and no restaurant touts needed!

“Delicious Food”
Reviewed June 8, 2013

Having been to a wide array of different Bulgarian "mehanas" (or taverns, traditional Bulgarian restaurants), this is easily one of the best. My girlfriend specifically sought this out because she had gone a few years ago and had a similar experience.
The food was plentiful and cooked very, very well - had some soup, sach (like a skillet of various meats), the bread was amazing, and overall the atmosphere is very authentic.
The bill was surprisingly inexpensive, even by Bulgarian standards, so that was nice. I had both wine and beer, which again was great.
Highly recommend and I'll definitely be back - I have kept their business card in a safe place so I remember where to go!
