If you are visiting Sarajevo don't leave without stopping by Karuzo, your senses will enjoy every mouthfull of his culinary magic. Sasha is a really cool guy, always smiling and very pleasant and charming. The place is cosy and authentic, very intimate but always mind making a reservation before you go. Keep the good job Sasha!

Imagine me as a native New Yorker finding the rudest chef ever in Sarajevo, Bosnia. That's what happened when a friend who lives in this wonderful city suggested we eat at Karuzo. He thought it would be a good choice because I prefer to eat healthfully and this restaurant caters to vegetarians and vegans with Mediterranean cuisine and some sushi... More

This is a small restaurant owned by the chef. On the evening we went, he was the only person. He took orders, served and cooked. The food was amazing and incredibly tasteful but took two hours to arrive! Would highly recommend but if you have time for a leisurely meal.

Myself and partner went here for early dinner. The menu is really extensive, Indian, sushi, pasta, Moroccan, all veggie or fish. We had a lovely pear salad to start and chick pea and lentil dishes for mains, all were delicious and well-presented. Word of warning however, service Is extremely slow, a few couples came in, sat down and left after... More

We were thrilled to get a last-minute table at this restaurant! How many times do you get a chef to prepare your meal on-the-spot?Yes, it is a little longer, but worth the wait. Get a bottle of wine, sit back, and relax while you wait for this amazing food!

My friend and I went to Karuzo on or travels through Bosnia and will never forget that afternoon. Saša, the owner, welcomed us as the only guests in his tiny restaurant that is decorated with lots of love and thought to resemble a ship's hold. He treated us not like guests but like friends that entered his house and we... More

We ate dinner here and at the end of the meal made a reservation for the next night. That gives you an idea of how we felt about the meal. There was so much on the menu that sounded fantastic we couldn't help but want to return. Eat here if you enjoy good food. Especially if you're a vegan or... More

We had a wonderful eating experience. We asked for some bread for a start, but this wasn't challenging enough. We got a great salad and the trout was amazing!

The quality of the food is the best. The owner and his assistant are the only two working, so the owner was a combnation of chef, waiter and entertainment :) I am Italian so usually i don't eat pasta outside of Italy, but the gnocchi and tortellini that he makes are defenetly an exception that confirms the rule :) the...
