A taste of real Balcan food. Served by a smiling Balcan beauty

Why is it classified as a Turkish restaurant? Nice alternative food in a pitoresque environment. Thanks to the lady at desk who managed to find an accomodation for our two families eventi if booking late on Friday evening.

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

He told us it was a Bosnian restaurant – I’m assuming he was right. The menu seemed to have a lot of meat and cheese. There were not many starters (unless... More
