Simply stunning food. We are not even vegetarians, yet it is one of the best meals we have ever had. The flavour's were superb. The food is prepared fresh, so be prepared to wait, but it is worth waiting for. The owner is friendly and very interesting (he has his own recipe book, complete with healthy eating tips). I would...

great food and drinks, very friendly and competent (slowish) service ... best experience ever :-) ... very happy to have stumbled upon this gem behind an unseemly facade ...

I was fortunate enough to hear about Karuzo from a friend of mine I met while backpacking. The food was so amazing that I actually went twice in one day! The restaurant itself is incredibly cute and cozy, and the chef and owner is one of the nicest guys you'll meet. Karuzo has a charm about it that anyone will... More

My friends and I heard about this place through other travelers. We tried it out and were blown away. Delicious food, great service, and amazing atmosphere. Portion sizes are large and filling, menu has an array of options, and Sasa explains each dish amazingly well. Highly recommend! Going back tonight for more!

Our group of 5 each had a different main course (some vegetarian, some fish/seafood). Every single one of them was freshly prepared and tasted delicious. Vegan deserts were unexpectedly scrumptious. House white wine (Žilavka) is highly commendable, dry and fruity. And don't be in a hurry, the extremely likeable restaurant owner Saša cooks himself, assisted (on this evening) only by... More

My friend and I ate here for dinner on our last night in Sarajevo. What an experience! It was just a warm inviting atmosphere and Saša looked after us (and everybody else) on his own all night and did it with a huge smile. It's evident he really enjoys food and was so pleased when we enjoyed the meal. The... More

I am not vegetarian - I visited this restaurant with my vegetarian friend. I was really positive surprised, how tasty and delicious food is there prepared. Dont expect low cost restaurant, but it is pay off. Owner alone is famous Bosnian propagator of vegetarian food and prepared this food personally. Fully recommended!

We went to Karuzo looking for veg friendly food. They have a long menu and several specials, and despite only the chef working, as mentioned previously he is also host and server, you feel welcomed and taken care of as if there were several staff. Everything was delicious, but the home made seitan chili was a standout. Meals are expensive,... More
