Excellent beef, Festive ambience

When in Zagreb, unless a vegetarian, be sure to have a meal at this wildly popular Bosnian restaurant. We arrived at 4 pm and almost could not get in because the place was packed and we did not have a reservation. We asked the waiter if there was a wedding party going on and he said the large... read more

Restaurant with very good food which is closely related to a grill food. Excellent "cevapcici"! Portion of dish was size that we couldn´t even ate. Service can be more professional.

In short: this is not a restaurant worth visiting. The food is nothing but average, but what really ruined our visit was the chaotic and slow service, with a great amount of stereotypical balcan male chauvinism thrown in for good measure. The waiter ignored the older female members of our group, in fact so much they actually forgot to bring... More

The waiter was very rude and he made an impression that he didn't really care about our order, we made reservation in 19.30 but the waiter claimed that the reservation was made in 19 wich ofcourse wasn't. Nisam ja glup majke ti!

The food is quite heavy, but tasteful for those who like salty and somewhat greasy meat-based food. Me, not being one of those, still enjoyed the salad and grilled meat. The service can be slow during busy hours, but the major disappointment is the airconditioning system, as much of the food contains onions, you get out with a pretty unpleasant... More

I heard from locals about this restaurant. Food is good but too salty. Service is ok. Waiters are too busy... Not bad food though...

You don't need to visit Sarajevo to have a good Bosnian meal. We were at Sofra in Zagreb todayy. Everything that we tried was perfect. Pita, klepe, bosanska muckalica, begova corba - you have to taste everything, it's tasty, it's perfect. And so is the staff. I recomend it!

Very nice family restaurant with lots of unique and authentic bosnian meals. Cooked properly (most of them need long time cooking), variety of offer form non-sweet pies (cheese, spinach, meat), strews (kalya, bosnian pot), grill etc. Among sweets I'd like to stress baklava, absolutely the best in Zagreb. Turkish coffee. Sarajevo premium beer. Everything is delicious. Friendly and fast service.... More
