Very good food with a superb view

The restaurant is located in the old Turkish dungeons and it has an ancient authentic look. However, nothing will remind you of the dungeons other than the thick stone walls. It looks nice, the establishment has been running for many years and it's a Banja Luka landmark. The food is very good... read more

I was here following the recommendation of local business partner. The location of the restaurant is great, inside the fortress and above the river with good views. I have ordered traditonally roasted veal (teletina ispod sača). This should mean soft meat with lots of juices, but mine was opposite. Too hard and dry. I suspect this was due to re-heating... More

Kazamat is settled in the old fortress at the very heart of Banjaluka. The staff are polite, on time. The food is various, from grilled meat to veggies. Position is great, the terrace above river Vrbas is wonderful during spring and summer.

We came across the Kazamat Restaurant at the Kastel (Castle) in Banja Luka while on a weekend trip to Bosnia. The setting was fantastic, we sat outdoors on the terrace overlooking the Vrbus river which was great. The staff were good, we had a small child and they interacted with her which was nice. The food was good, the portions... More

Nice interior, but the restaurant must have at disposal everything that is offered in the menu! Variety of fish meals is missing.

Kazamat is a gem. Wonderful food but the atmosphere is what makes it amazing. You can eat inside or in a sheltered patio or on the walls of a Turkish fortress (which was built on a Roman fortress) overlooking the river that runs through Banja Luka. The river is clean enough to swim in and there is grass and a... More

This restaurant is located in the old fortress by the river and has a lovely outdoors serving in summer right down by the river. Wonderful views. Despite the gorgeous location, the service was pretty poor. The waiter looked as he was visibly upset or disturbed by our presence. The food was fine, nothing spectacular. We had some lovely local Tamjanika... More
