Even our president eat there :)

The best chevapi I have ever eaten! Very fast and very good service - 5,10,15 delicious meat :) Delicious cevapi with kajmak, onions and lepinja. It is always full of people but you can find a seat - it is fascinant :))

First of all, that was second and the last time that I ate in Zeljo. Cevapi was not bad, but atmosphere and service was terrible. I came with a friend, and there was no room for seat, but they find a place in the corner, and we must to eat at the same desk with other people. And after that... More

This place was recommended by a taxi driver. I liked Kastel Cevapcici better, which is only five minutes away

I did not think it was the best since it was a bit dry and didn't sit well. The service was very good and fast. We got two medium chevapi 7 BAM each and the bill was 17 BAM ( I guess 3 BAM tax). Perhaps you have to grow up with this food to really appreciate it. I will... More

Every time I visit Sarajevo must stay at Željo for "desetka" of ćevapi. This is a must for every Sarajevo visitor to try a local cuisine. Ćevapi are cult local food, worldwide known but still best at Željo in Sarajevo 😄😄😄
