Cevapcici are most popular grill in Sarajevo. There are many restaurants in Bascarsia which offer this special grill. But the most popular is "Željo", place in the center of Old Town. Friendly stuff, smell and taste of this delicious grill will made you wish to come again. If you have not been in "čevabdžinica Željo", it means you had not... More

If you want the local fast food you get here very fast and plenty of it. But you can't get any demon fire water with it.

Our cousin asked for directions to this particular restaurant and we were not disappointed. The meat and bread were fresh (how... More

It is my boyfriend favorite restaurant since he was young. The best way to enjoy cevapi is with fork and hand only. Order with bread, kajmak, onion and a glass of yogurd. Thats how you enjoy like a local. If you use knife, directly everybody will know that you are not from sarajevo :) Restaurant location is in the city... More

Everyone that has been traveling in the Western Balkans has inevitably seen small and big restaurants advertising Bosnian or Sarajevo Cevap. Well now that you have come to Sarajevo, the choice for Cevap is practically unlimited. There is hardly a place where you cannot get this dish. But then if you want to taste the Cevap which made Sarajevo famous... More
