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

It is true that the service is quite slow and a bit approximative ( the waiter forgot a dish we ordered) but the place is always crowded and there is only few waiters for many clients. There is a large choice of dishes and every stuff we took had incredible taste and flavour. We also drank two pints of local... More

A nice place in Old Town. It was very busy when we were there. The staff was friendly, but not as friendly as I've seen them in Sarajevo. The food was ok, but after a few bites I grew tired of it. No bad things to say about it, but just an average place.

Very delicious traditional foods. We enjoyed a lot. I highly recommend this place. Soups are also great.

After having this restaurant recommended to us by a local tour guide, we decided to eat here on our final night in Sarajevo. Upon approaching the waitress, our request for a table was met with a resounding "NO", before an almost instantaneous change of heart prompted her to usher us to a vacant table on her right. We assumed that... More

Restaurant "Pod Lipom" is located in the very heart of Bascarsija and it offers traditional Bosnian cuisine. Staff is very pleasant, friendly, warm and helpful. Prices are reasonable and food is really excellent. Most of the times I ate at this restaurant it was business-related when I wanted to show foreign visitors how delicious Bosnian cuisine is and interior is... More

Being somewhat if a creature of habit I found this place and ate there three nights in a row. The food choice along with the wine list brought me back. I would highly suggest a visit there.

We stopped in for dinner, just a quick bite to eat. The meals are of a reasonable portion size and not expensive. As it was busy we sat upstairs. A very steep flight of stairs and into a separate dining area. Very good place to have a meal.
