There are some El Torito specialitets that will leave you without words. Try camamber with blackberries and baked appels with chees. For meat eaters - shishlik is excelent!

Slightly off the beaten track but well worth making the effort to find. We sat in the large garden under the gazebo. The waiting staff are friendly and efficient and happy to make suggestions if you're stuck for a choice. I opted for the chicken sach, chicken fillets with potatoes, mushrooms, carrots, onions, courgette, aubergines and peppers all served on... More

Great food with my family while visiting Bansko. Very good recommendation for salad and main dish to share. The garden is a nice and quiet place to enjoy dinner.

There's a lot of choices in the menu (mostly meat), the dishes are big and really tasty. The atmosphere was nice and the staff were extremely friendly and helpful.

We had a beautiful and unbelievably cheap meal here. It was very quiet in June when we visited but they pulled out all the stops and the food was some of the best we had. The courtyard is lovely with shade canopies and flowers in the garden.

What a hidden gem! This is worth the walk, don't be put off by the fact it's away from the main 'strip' it was lovely traditional food and the waiter was so friendly and able to suggest what to eat. The table behind us has a big chicken skewer which the waiter set alight which was amazing, and then bought... More

Not the easiest place to find, it's in a backstreet a couple of roads away from the main strip but it is well worth the effort. Food is great, massive portions and in the case of the shaslik, served very theatrically. We also had the Banski Sach (meat, potatoes and vegetables served on a hot plate), which was lovely and...
