Great food, very nice view, service good but slow. Anyway, this is the place for good lunch in Banja Luka. Placed in the old fortress with perfect view over river Vrbas this restaurant will make you feel good for a long time after meal.

The Kazamat is located in the old stone fort and has integrated the restaurant without sacrificing the style of the fort. It's a great place to eat during the Spring and Summer as the outdoor seating looks out onto the Vrbas River. The food is great and the service is also very good.

Oh well, I'm a non-smoker and I get sick if people smoke when I'm eating. So i wanted to move to the non-smoking room where I found 3 women smoking in it, upon which the waiter said they had made "an exception" for that day. Not true, they just can't tell smokers to put that ciggy out since they are... More

Restaurant Kazamat is the only place in Banja Luka where you can have an acceptable dinner! I m often in Bosnia for doing some business and I never find a good restaurant until a friend of mine took me to this place... food is fresh and excellent! very good international wines! the only minus: service very slow

For tourists, the prices at Kazamat are quite reasonable, but it is a fancy restaurant and not in the cheap price range for locals. At Kazamat you can try different kinds of traditional Bosnian dishes, we can warmly recommend the "under the bell" main dishes. We especially enjoyed the beautiful surroundings of the restaurant and the nice atmosphere, as it... More

Castle based tourist restaurant with average food but some nice ambient - especially while seating in glassed veranda. The food is good but nothing Michelin star like. It is more about quantity (which is big) than haute cuisine. No drought beer!

It is located in the heart of the city, within the walls of the Kastel fortress, on the bank of the river Vrbas, and is the historic core and the site where the city of Banja Luka was founded. Apart from its rich history, it is featuring the rustic ambiance... More

Sadly I only found this restaurant in the last day of the trip! Tasty food, large portions, beautiful setting and good value. Probably an expensive restaurant for locals but good value vs UK prices. A must if you are visiting BL.

Restaurant Kazamat - don't miss it if you visit Banja Luka! Excellent location in the walls of the old Kastel fortress. It has outdoor seating on the picturesque banks of the river Vrbas. Great food, great drinks, reasonable prices, friendly staff and a beautiful view of the river. I was there during the all day trip from Sarajevo, with my... More

We had dinner here on my visit to Banja-Luka. Make sure to order fish. They serve fabulous trout from Vrbas river. Deserts are awesome and so are salads, pastry and main dish. Reasonable prices.
