Cheap, good Balkan eats

The service is a little slow, but the portions are big and the price is right. If you sit out on the street on a Friday night, you can listen to a decent band that play sold American tunes.

If you want Bosnian food, this is the place to go to in Maribor. The portions are enormous and you definitely get your money's worth. There is a lot of variety but they sometimes run out of the 'burek' because it's really popular. There are also many vegetarian items on the menu. The atmosphere inside and out is lovely. The...

Nice small place in the city centre. Very good "Balkan" food (cevapcici, etc.). Small place with the nice decoration. They have also music at the end of the week. Good food, not expaansive, but tasty. Recommended for young people and with all other which like Balkan food.

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....

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 for lunch and parties out for... More
