We went for dinner after reading about the place on The New York Times' 36 hours in Sarajevo article. We weren't sure what to expect and found a wonderful boisterous place (but a very nice one) with good food and amazing views over the city. It's a wonderful mix of kitsch and local (only in feel - I suspect most... More

Kibe is located on a hill overlooking city centre. It can be a little tricky to find the place, take a taxi, it costs next to nothing. You better make a reservation, ask for a windows side table. The place is a mixture of art gallery, hoteI and restaurant. It has a beautiful design and and a warm atmosphere. I... More

It is just plane meat or vegetable but very very... More

We came with big expectations aimed to have lamb on a spitz. Unfortunantely, they didn't have it since they prepare it for lunch (at 2pm) an dinner (at 7pm). Resataurant with such reputation should not allow that. Hence, from very short list in the menu we took Muckalica and it was also dissapointment, mostly with the size of dish and... More

The upper floor of this 5-story restaurant offers an exciting view over the city of Sarajevo. We ate traditional Bosnian food and in general it was very good. The wine selection is not very extensive and you have to look hard for a decent one.

Would recommend taking a taxi up the hill to this gem, since it's rather steep and maybe 1 km from the old town. Enjoy a mix of traditional ottoman meze/starters and grilled lamb as your main. Not cheap, but worth every penny.

Lamb is a little hard to find in Sarajevo. I found this restaurant on Trip Advisor. You need to take a taxi to get there - hard to find and uphill (but you walk back into the City centre very easilly in 20 minutes). Excellent views of Sarajevo below from the restaurant. We arrived without reservations (we did not know... More

The view of beautiful Sarajevo (especially before sun set) is priceless. The food is very tasty, not expencive at all - for the service, location of Kibe - and it didn't... More

1 km north from the city center, a little bit uphill, so I prefer to call a taxi. The restaurant is serving superb local (bosnian/ottoman) cuisine, they have a nice selection of quality wines/for Bosnian circumstances quite expensive, but still afordable if you drink a a glas or two of them. I suggest you trust the waiters ordering the food.... More

The best restaurant in Sarajevo, hands down. The atmosphere, view of the city and food were out of this world. I would recommend either soup, the spit roast lamb, Pura, followed by the Apple pie. Quit reading other reviews, and go!
