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

Hey guys! I want to warn you about mr Sasha and his Karuzo "vegetarian" restaurant. This guy only idea to run a restaurant is: hey, we can cook from veggies as well. In Bosnia, and Sarayevo, where cevapi and pleskavica are main dishesh in 95% percent of restaurants and bars, that idea would be more then enough. There is only... More

Food was lovely although we had to wait quite a while for it. The food is made to order and is mainly vegetarian but also has fish dishes. Usually best to book a table. This was our third visit and will be back again!

As other reviewers have said, this small restaurant is run by one man who is both chef and waiter. He trained at Cordon Vert in the U.K. and clearly cares about the food he makes. He could do with some help though, as there is too much work for one person. He always asks if you've made a reservation, even... More

I've been at Karuzo for a dinner by myself. Actually the evening before I already tried with a friend but he didn't accept us. Just consider that you have to book if you want to be sure to enjoy Karuzo's food. Sasha manages everything by himself and when he attends 6/8 persons, he's already very busy. So far the experience... More

Thank you for a wonderful evening in this beautiful little Restaurant. My girlfriend is vegetarian and we had hard times to find something to eat besides Cevapcici on our whole trip - so the Karuzo was THE culinary highlight! Finally some excellent food, lovely prepared, the staff very nice. It was the highlight of our trip trough Bosnia an Croatia,... More

We have been in Karuzo twice. Once, in February, for a Valentine's Day and once in August. I am vegetarian and we do not smoke so we wanted to spend one evening in this restaurant after reading all this positive comments on trip advisor. First of all I appreciate the idea of running restaurant such unpopular as vegetarian and no... More

Adventure in culinary art, but you must make a reservation, if in person you will be remembered no need for names. Robinson Crusoe – a story of a one-man survival – this Karuzo is a story of one-man love of the art of dinning! This is not a place for people seeking quick meal; you must enjoy your stay with...

I've eaten at over 20 restaurants in Sarajevo including some of the best/finest and this restaurant stands out the most to me. It's nothing less than fantastic. I feel I also should mention that they don't serve any kind of meat here for you meatlovers. But even my father who hates fish loved the fish here. I would recommend reserving... More

Karuzo is this hole in the wall restaurant manned by one man - the chef and owner Sasa Obucina. The inside of this tiny restaurant is pretty much a boat. Outside there are three tables. That's it! It sort of reminds me of hidden away, tiny, Tokyo restaurants. You simply have to know where it is, and even when you're... More
