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

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.
