Bulgaria provides abundance of fresh vegetables and fruit that are organic and come directly from the land. This is especially true for smaller towns and villages, located near the mountains. This is the case with the beautiful mountain town Bansko, a favorite place for summer and winter vacations to thousands of tourists.

Mehanas and Restaurants in Bansko

Bansko offers more than 40 hotel restaurants, cafés and mehanas, where tourists can enjoy good and cheap food and drinks. People will be able to taste all special dishes from the traditional Bulgarian cuisine in the mehanas and choose from the wide selection of tasty wines, some of which will come directly from the mehana’s barrels.

The mehanas are a social place, where people can spend the night and enjoy the live entertainment while drinking. In the menus offered there are cheese boards, light snacks and different cured meats. Most of these mehanas remain open until the last guest leaves.

Both restaurants and mehanas serve high quality European and local beers. The most popular ones are Zagorka and Kamenitza, as well as Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon wines.

Great samples of excellent restaurants are the Italian restaurant behind the Kempinski hotel, the Bansko Mehana, and Café Blonde.
