    Frequently Asked Questions

    • How food is prepared at the Leonardo restaurant?
      Food is the most important thing in any given restaurant – it is the heart and soul of the place. At the Leonardo restaurant, we always serve food that is fresh and with unique taste qualities.

      If there is a group reservation request, we offer a choice of several sets of menus that can satisfy even the most specific culinary preferences, but within the main menu of the restaurant that is established for the season. However, the number of people in the group does not affect the price.

      We are doing our best to meet all the requirements of our guests, of course, to the extent that is possible. We can exclude certain products at the request of the client, provided that they are not essential in the recipe for the preparation of the respective dish. For example, we can exclude certain vegetables, such as onions, dill, garlic, etc., or process a product using a shorter or longer thermal treatment, etc. In any case, the wishes of our guests are very important to us, so do not hesitate to share them, and our waiters will take care to comply with them when receiving the order.

    • History of the Leonardo restaurant
      The opening of LuckyBansko SPA & Relax aparthotel in 2007 was followed by successful winter seasons, numerous awards and recogntion from our clients. During the same period Bansko has established itself as one of the best winter resorts not only in Bulgaria but also in the Balkans, which has led to a significant increase in tourist flow. All of these factors influenced the hotel's decision to acquire another restaurant to serve not only our guests but also external visitors. This is how Leonardo was created, which is part of the hotel and at the same time is located outside the main hotel part, which makes it accessible to all those who want to visit it from the surrounding hotels and resort in general. An additional advantage is the outdoor swimming pools at the restaurant, which attract a large number of tourists during the summer months. Leonardo Restaurant is a serious investment and its goal is to create an attractive place in Bansko that caters to its guests with freshly prepared food while making them feel at home, satisfying even their most demanding desires. This is exactly what we want most - our guests to enjoy home-cooked food in a pleasant and sophisticated setting, offering them friendly ease and unobtrusive service. In short, we want them to feel at home and become part of the magic called Leonardo.
    • How does Leonardo Bansko fit into the traditional cuisine of the winter resort?
      I would not say that we fit in especially with the traditional cuisine of Bansko and the region - the one offered in Bansko taverns. Our menu includes exquisite and traditional dishes of the Italian cuisine prepared according to original recipes, homemade pasta and pizzas, unique charcoal barbecue. Rather, the restaurant offers an alternative culinary experience, sophistication and style that complement and enrich the traditional for the resort.
