Always a great stay at this small family hotel, views overlooking the Assen Monument in the old town. Decorated in Bulgarian traditional style, rooms are spacious yet cosy. Traditional food is served in the restaurant and a hearty breakfast in the morning. The staff are very friendly.

One of the Best Restaurants we ate in in Bulgaria. We can highly recommend the cooking of the owner as well as the chef. Great Service, interesting decor and not too expensive either. Location is romantic and the attached hotel looks romantic as well as being well located..

We stayed in the hotel and the dinner was so good on our first night that we didn't eat anywhere else in VT! The dinners were big, the food was home cooked and local and lovely. The wines were excellent and most reasonable. The service was efficient, friendly and helpful and the restaurant had a nice informal atmosphere. We also... More

Me and my family (husband and our 2,5y daughter) ate at the Mehana Gurko once during the week we spend at the Veliko Tarnovo. The food was good but not that special, portions were good size. The interior at the restaurant made the experience worth visit, the fireplace and the old traditional Bulgarian style was great. The staff was very... More

A lovely setting in the historical city of Veliko Tarnovo. Ideally located overlooking a large geographical bowl. Staff were friendly, food and drink good in this quaint setting. Not expensive either.

After dining in Mehana Gurko on my first evening, I returned for the next three nights...that's how good it was! When I find a winner, I stick with it. This charming, atmospheric restaurant serves the most delicious food and the wait staff are so warm and welcoming. A standout is their vegetable sachi which is an assortment of grilled vegetables...

Hotel Gurko - Mehana - Restaurant is a good place to eat traditional food. Though some foods have a little more oil than normal the taste is great and we felt very well after eating here. Prices are medium so 2 persons can eat a dinner at around 30-40 leva (about 20 EUR)

Thank Alexandru H
