A must go.

A great place to have an incredibly stuffing meal, drinks and fun with friends and family. The restaurant is situated in the center of town, in one of it's most lively streets. The place has a lot of charm and is lovingly decorated with an authentic balkan feel. They cater to both families out... read more

We enjoyed the meatballs sopska salad, rice, and some other typical dishes and they were all fabulous. The restaurant looks quite assuming from the street, but we ate very well, really pleasantly surprised by how nice the food was and for a meal for four people with drinks it came to €28.

I have eaten this food in places where it supposedly stems from or where it is famous, but it has never tasted so good, it has never even felt so authentic, as it did at Bascarsija. Truly authentic Bosnian receipts, a European man's soul food, made by stunning chefs and served by marvelous waiting staff in the most heartwarming, romantically... More

If you want to try authentic, tasty Bosnian cuisine, experience great atmosphere and meet friendly staff, you can't go wrong with Bascarsija. I definitely recommend it.

Not meeting up with the expectations of the previous reviews. I advise to skip this restaurant and certainly not have at such a high ranking here. There are far better places in Maribor that deserve the better place. The food is average and no more, why this restaurant gets some many excellent reviews, I think they do not deserve that....

Maybe it was just a coincidence ... first we waited 15-20 min to order drinks. Than we waited some more to order food and when the food finally (long time when you're hungry) arrived it was cold. Come on! Give me a break! The patotoes were so cold like they've been keeping it in the fridge. The service was slow,... More
