Description: "Best Balkan cuisine in an unnamed neighborhood!" Banja Luka is a wonderful town of sunny Bosnia. For centuries inhabited by Croats, Serbs, Bosniaks, Jews and Muslims was an example of good neighborly relations and positive mutual influence of many cultures. It's a fabulous city, destroyed by the terrible earthquake in 1969 and the subsequent war. It is for us a symbol of the Balkans, a lively mix of cultures and traditions, we want you to pass it in a casual atmosphere with a pinch of salt. We offer you delicious, a little crazy, real Balkan cuisine. Banjaluka started in 2002 and spent 10 years in Mokotow district. After moving to the heart of the city some nightlife was added to the family-friendly attitude. The restaurant is famous for its diverse balkan cuisine, highest ingredient and dish quality and casual atmosphere. Fresh balkan menu was developed by Tadeusz Muller - Banjaluka is now a real Balkan food venue with flair for seafood and large portions of meat with the legendary 20cm Gurmanska Pljeskavica as a flag dish. The place stays open late (11PM weekdays and 12PM on weekends). During lunch and the weekend brunches Banjaluka serves fine as a centrally located balkan diner and quality time with your family an friends.

The Balkan cuisine is very tasty and quite big portions at economical price. Loved the Balkan Raznjici and Cevapcici dishes. In drinks try the Rakiye sa medon shot. They have a nice collection of wines to choose from. Live music everyday. Staff are courteous and Service is good. Overall a great experience.

We ate here 'on spec' having picked it from Google maps. The food was the best we had in our few days in Warsaw. Portions were good without being too big to finish. This was my first experience of Balkan food and I was very impressed with the range of flavours. Neither of us spoke Polish but the friendly waitress... More

Really enjoyed my lunch here. The place itself is very comfy, which is also reflected in the service. The lamb chops were delicious, would go again!

If you are hungry and like grilled meat dishes, this is definitely the place for you. Try the mixed grill platter. The meat is really melting in your mouth. The portion is so big that even if you are extremely hungry you will have to ask for a doggy bag. The beef tartar prepared right before your eyes not by... More

They are in a new location near the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. when they were in their old location my friends and I agree the food was better and the atmosphere was more unique. Regardless I love their smoked feta wrapped in bacon.

I have visited the restaurant with a group of 8 people on a Friday evening, we all had enormous amount of food - just like it is customary in the Balkans with sausage, chicken and all kinds of other meats. We had musicians playing and a dancer and you could feel all the dozens of people inside the restaurant felt... More

We ate lunch at Banja Luka. The service levels are excellent, the decor very Balkan. The starters are super and by the time we reached the main corse we were quite full but could not resist the lamb chops ( a must) If you are three order two portions of Lamb chops. The service is excellent and the snappes went... More

Great food, great atmosphere, a real Balkan experience. You probably need to book ahead of time, and book the garden if it's summer. I'd call this the best Balkan restaurant in Warsaw.
