Enough to say this is the place where Bill Clinton ate when visiting Sarajevo. Please add "Bosnian" in field type of cuisine, since Bosnian food is a unique combination of oriental and Mediterranean food.

Our guide in Sarajevo suggested this restaurant, and I found he was right! Several typical dishes are served, our waiter was kind and very polite and spoke english. I do not eat meat, so I ate potatoes and other vegetables... and they were really tasty! I imagine all other disher are as good as the ones I ate.

Like the restaurants next door, Pod Lipom offers traditional Bosnian food but with nicer service and better prices. Good wine and a selection of traditional dishes. Recommended.

Went here for dinner on my first night in Sarajevo and wanted a traditional experience which is what I got. Very nice service and a large menu of traditional foods done very well. We had a wonderful cheese and meat tray to start that was fabulous. The entrees and desserts were terrific as well. A wonderful start to the trip.

We loved this restaurant so much that we ate here twice in our three days in Sarajevo. The Bosnian food was absolutely delicious, and the prices unbelievably low. We also enjoyed talking with our waiter about his conversations with Bill Clinton over the years. We can understand why it is Bill Clinton's favorite restaurant in Sarajevo.

We had a terrific dinner after receiving a recommendation from our hotel. Food was great, service outstanding, prices so low you'll think the waiter made a math error. Great for intimate dinner on a warm evening.

With a nice outdoor patio and very nice servers, this place was a great place for dinner. The menu was a bit bigger than most, though it was mostly Bosnian standards. I had some nice sea bass; my husband had the typical grilled meats. The musicians who played during our dinner were great.

We wanted authentic Bosnian food and that is what we got. Everything was delicious, the waiter was very helpful in telling us what to order. Three course meal, beer and coffee for two KM 44.00. Excellent value for money. The place had a lovely atmosphere. Definately recommend.
