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

Very good restaurant. Traditional Bosnian food and conventional food with Bosnian flavors. Bosanski lonac is must try. Low prices and quality food.

Let me start by saying the salads here were tasty, the kaimak and bread was wonderful, and the rakia flowed smooth and cold. But ... The meat. Flavor. Variety. Bounty. Yum. 12 of us entered. Three "Plata Sofras" (and several drinks) later, we rolled ourselves out, stuffed and happy, with enough left over for several lunches. If you are in... More

This is great place, Location is good, food is excellent, waiters are nice... And Because of that it was crowded when we came here, but had luck that someone canceled their reservation at the same time :) so for you to have better place to look at authentic furniture and listen bosnian music, i would recomend that you make reservation...

I am a native Bosnian, and this restaurant will definitely serve you food the traditional way. About the taste.. just stunning. The ambience, the staff, the food. Words simply can not describe this place. You just have to come and try. A MUST if you are visiting Zagreb.

There are two Sofra's in Zagreb - this one, and the one at the business center Green Gold. This one (Gardijske brigade Tigrovi 27), is my favourite. The atmosphere is cozy and charming. The service is good, and the food is my go to comfort food. Very tasty, big portions. Yes, there is a lot of meat on offer, but... More

If you want to try something different, go to Sofra, Croatian/Bosnian/Balkan grill. Great fun with traditional balkan dishes and balkan music, taste the atmosphere of this region. Charming ambience, good service and good location, easy to find. Definetly reccomand
