Pod Lipom is a terrific restaurant with an extensive and varied menu. Everything we ate, the Sarajevska chorba, klepe, stuffed onions and on and on, was first-rate. The service was typical Sarajevo - engaging, attentive and informative. All in all, top-notch. We were repeat visitors here and for good reason. The whole package - food, atmosphere and the human connection.... More

We had lunch here twice and loved it. I ended up having soup (Begova corba) and klepe; my husband had the same soup as me, and veal. Another couple had cevape and another vegetable/meat based meal. Overall, everything tasted great! The atmosphere is very laid back. People sit in the area and people watch for hours, it seems. And they... More

The place is very nice, the waiters are very kind and the food is excellent! Traditional bosnian soups have been a nice surprise for me, especially begova corba (the bey's soup) with chicken and okra; all kind of meat is very good and grilled mushrooms with a little squeeze of sour cream are excellent. The wooden walls contribute to create... More

We had a recommendation for this restaurant from the local people but all together it was really average or under it. The staff was OK, but everything else was really average. The atmosphere is not defined. It is all mixed, or let's say confused between traditional and the things they thought would be contemporary. The food was really just OK... More

In one day, two different friends took me here for lunch and then for dinner. Both said they were taking me to the best restaurant in town for classic Bosnian dishes. I can't disagree with their judgement. I had the Bosnian ravioli type meat-stuffed pasta for lunch, and then the Sarajevo sampler for dinner. Service was friendly and prompt, even... More

This restaurant has tables spread out across a wide area on both sides of the street. Although the food was nothing special, we had a lovely waiter both times we were there. He looked a little like James Nesbitt, for those of you who know who that is. He was very friendly and he warned us that one of the... More

The food was good, homey and traditional; good value for money. Servcie wasn't very friendly or helpful - we ordered a few dishes but the waiter decided that we were to have other dishes, that he preferred/recommended, so we ended up receiving what the waiter wanted and not what we wanted. Overall it was an OK dinner, definitely not a... More
