Nothing negative to say, the place speeks for itself. Ordered 2 dishes, both great. There is also a gallery in the complex.

It is a special place in Veliko both for the historical legacy but also for the professionalism of the personnel. I recommend the visit of this restaurant as a part of discovering the greatness of the old Bulgarian capital.

We were disapointed from the main dishes. Wine was good. One of us went to eat pizza after the meal. The wine was the only thing that had taste

Service was very professional, attentive and friendly. The menu well balanced, the food delicious and the house wine well becoming. Live music on piano made the Ambiente very romantic. Overall we happily recommend Hadji Nikoli Inn.

This is great place to spend the evening in Veliko! Nice restaurant, situated in Old Town. The atmosphere was great, we were accompanied by live piano. Prices are ok and the waiters are very polite and friendly. However there is no place for kids to play. Tasty food. Definetely a place to come back!

The place is amazing - beautiful and with a lot of history. It was the best thing and the only reason that will make me come back. The service - they really try to treat you as a queen, but I think they are understaffed and this results in making you wait nearly an hour to receive a simple salad.... More

I can cook better. Besides the waiter that treated us like kings only the place is OK. Food is ok if you are only hungry.
