Perfect Bosnian cuisine in Croatia

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

Sofra in Folnegovicevo quarter is one of the best places with Bosnian food. Meat and grill is soft and tasty, specialites of the house are imso yummy. We are going there often, prices are ok, and food perfect. Service is very proffesional and polite.

I have been many times to this reastaurant "Sofra" in Zagreb. Very good tradiotional bosnian food, big portions, very tasty, and reasonable price. You have to book your visit because they are always busy, so without booking you will hardly find free table at evening.

Even though Sofra has become a chain of restaurants (3 locations in Zagreb) and is rather mass oriented, the food is still very good, although the service can be slow. Sofra in Green Gold is pretty busy all the time (both workdays and weekends, noon or evenings) and the restaurant in the shopping center in Vrbani even more. Reservations are... More

It was so much fun! We made a reservation and we didn't have any problems with that. There was a gypsy band playing and they were great! Food was very good as well and the service was better than in some more expensive restaurants in Zagreb. Interesting interior design

This was the worst nightmare scenario: recommended by friends, we went there looking forward to an enjoyable and exciting lunch. A working day, surprisingly busy. After being seated, we tried to make an eye-contact with one of the waiters. There were a few of them cruising around, but always skillfuly managed to avoid the eye-contact. Bosnians are renown to be... More
