A plus on food, drink, service, atmosphere, ambiance & even crowd. Parking has been improved, the wine list has evolved but not changed and the expansions which have taken place have added to and not taken away from the character of this unique restaurant.

The restaurant, nestled in the hills around Sarajevo, offers beautiful views and is a lovely setting for an evening meal in summer-time. The menu is strong on meat dishes: we had the spit-roasted lamb, which is a specialty of the house, and the strips of beef filet mignon, and both were delicious. This is hearty, tasty food served in a... More

Hotel Central recommended Kibe and we're glad they did. After a couple days of finding just pizza joints and such, we were craving a bit of fine dining and Kibe fit the bill perfectly. Plus there was a great view as the sun set over Sarajevo. Waitstaff was very pleasant (again, a radical departure from most places we'd eaten at... More

The quality and taste of the food is rivaled by the magnificent view and the attention provided by well trained and well mannered waiters who will recommend a perfect bottle of reasonable priced wines to be paired with your meal. The 5 mark taxi ride from the center of Sarajevo is well worth the ride! Possibly one of the best... More

We went with our kids and grandchildren in the late afternoon and were able to get in right away. Décor with very beautiful, we were seated in the open air terrace overlooking beautiful Sarajevo. We ordered traditional Bosnian Dishes and they were excellent, the flavors amazing. The kids all had dessert, which looked very decadent.I wished we had visited earlier... More

To get to Kibe you definitely need a car or taxi because it's literally on top of Sarajevo. Great scenery, two floors, traditional BH food (roasted lamb is a huge recommendation) and very knowledgeable staff. One of the best wine lists in Sarajevo with a good balance of local and imported wines.

Restaurant with the real feel of Bosnian ambience and atmosphere. They serve great food but to be honest you need to know what to choose so it's a good thing to have some local people to help with the menu. We went with visitors from other countries many times and they all were satisfied with the food and a fantastic... More

Kibe is a institution! Before I had the chance to visit it, I have been listening to the stories about and around it from the local people now living in different places all over the world. They are specialized restaurant for lamb and I'm not exactly the lamb lover, but nevertheless I really enjoyed it, so Kibe is D place... More
