Restaurant Gela focuses on providing creative and organic food based on local recipes. Our food is predominantly local and made of seasonal products, so our menu changes through the seasons.

We serve only slow cooked food. Therefore, all dishes are cooked to order so do not be surprised if you have to wait for your food for a while. However, we promise that you will not be disappointed!

If you stay with us you can pre-order your meal and we will cook and serve it at the exact time agreed.

In our menu we have selected selections for meat eaters, vegetarians, vegans and people with food allergies. Just let us know what kind of food you love and we will be happy to suggest the best options you.


Our philosophy towards food is simple and behind it is the belief that a great gastronomic experience is not just about the food and wine you consume. A great gastronomic experience is an emotional experience. It takes many things - a beautiful place, a home-like atmosphere, caring service and even food you don’t eat every day, just to name a few.

Coming back to our food philosophy, the food we serve is heavily influenced the typical Bulgarian cuisine and even more by the distinctive Rhodopean cuisine. We source only the best seasonal products, predominantly locally and cook them using as many local recipes as possible. We look forward to welcoming you soon and sharing our food passion with you.


We call our restaurant mehana, which is the Bulgarian word for the traditional and folk restaurant, serving Bulgarian cuisine.

Our mehana is a small cosy place where you can savour the flavours of culinary creations cooked especially for you. You will enjoy the warmth and the fragrance of a burning fire and the sound of popping embers coming from the fire place.

During the warm summer months the mehana terrace is the place where we serve all meals while you can appreciate the beauty of the surrounding mountains.
