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.

We were very pleased with this restaurant! The food had a welcoming, homey taste. We chose to eat more classic Bosnian dishes, and drank red wine from the region as well. The price was very affordable (40 KM for two main dishes and a bottle of red wine). We speak Swedish so when our initial server heard us speaking, we... More

Our first visit and evening to Sarajevo was framed by a rather cool, cloudy weather to be a summer evening in southern Europe. The oriental athmosphere in the old town was completed by an excellent dinner at Pod Lipom-restaurant. After managing the steep stairs to upstairs everything was perfect. Our group of 5 warmly recommends Vezirske mahmudije (veal medaillons), chicken... More

Located right at the heart of old town, this locale run by a friendly proprietor features a wide selection of diverse Bosnian selections. Very affordable and delicious (not the best meal I had in this marvelous country, but still very good). Many dishes are prepared according to the traditional sahan method (boiled in a copper bell-shaped dish)

"Ristorant Pod Lipom" was (they claim) frequented by Pres Bill Clinton and they have photos to prove it. Two of us had beer and one the local white... More

It's located in the heart of the old part of Sarajevo and offers originality and authenticity of Bosnian traditional cuisine. It is impossible to visit Sarajevo and do not perceive this restaurant. wondering what was the reason? it is always crowded with people! Especially in summer, it has a garden. As someone who lives in Sarajevo verified can say that... More
