Good Cevapi

The Cevapi is really good at this place. The only thing that is missing is that they don't serve you beer..

Our server didn't know English and was a bit cold but the food made up for it. It was great, very satisfying, didn't make us wait and had a great price.

Sat here for lunch, naturally had to have some cevap in Sarajevo and glad we came here! There were no spots outside to sit but a kind waiter ushered us to a table across the alley at the neighbors bar. He explained the options and we ordered drinks from the bar where we were sitting. Cevap is definitely best here,... More

Here you can find excellent local food in the center of Sarajevo - "BašČaršija" I never eat best čevapčiči. The staff is fast, prices low, and you will not be desapointing. Željo is olse to all attractions in center of Sarajevo.
