Best place in Sarajevo!

Really nice and small restaurant, very good choice for vegan and vegetarians, also sushi and fish dishes. The chef is really nice and friendly, and it is smoke free, really nice thing in Sarajevo!

I used to be a regular when I lived in Sarajevo, lovely restaurant with vegeterian and wish dishes. Coming again after a year I remmembered why - owner immediately recalling my name, home-made lentil soup, gratin of young octopus. Please note that I am a big meat eater and still this is my favourite restaurant in Sarajevo. If you expect... More

Visually stunning but the food is average. The orange and carrot soup was the highlight of the evening. I can't remember the name of the main but it's high salt content almost caused me a STROKE! Waiting time was ok and owner seemed friendly.

The only place in town with a wide variety of vegetarian options, this place is very sweet and cosy with lots of atmosphere and the host is a fun character and very welcoming. The food tastes nicely homemade and wholesome, with good portions, although it does veer on the pricier side for Sarajevo. Sometimes you may wait a while for... More

A bit atypical because it is vegetarian and fish - no meat. But you won't miss the meat when you made to order meal arrives. If the John Dory is fresh, get it. In a word, fabulous! You will be rocked by the polenta with mushrooms - divine! The meticulous preparation shows and Sasha is the perfect host and chef!... More

Visited Karuso in 2006, but somehow missed that they had excellent vegetarian food on that occasion. My friend took me this time and I had some wonderful veggie chili (not so easy to come by amongst all the burek). Wonderful atmosphere and a chef that will cater to your every need (they specialize in fresh fish). Well worth a visit.

When you arrive here you would not expect that you would eat so good! First of all: you don't eat here if you have not reserved. There are few tables and it is definitely better to reserve. Mr. Karuzo is such an incredible person..he seems unreal! We had 2 soups as appetizer: one with celery and pear (wonderful!) and another... More
