Excellent setting, great service, decent but not exceptional food

The setting, inside the old fort overlooking the river, can hardly be better. The waiter was attentive but not obstrusive. The food is not on par, though. The thick veal soup was too salty and on the oily side, and the slow-roasted veal was a tad too dry. Very expensive by Banja Luka standards...

We expected more than just a nice location with a pretty view...and got rather disappointed. :-( Our waiter was a catastrophe. He seemed annoyed with all of his guests, his face was deep-frozen and he didn't speak more than 5 words. (Saying that, the other staff (unfortunately not responsible for our table) seemed nicer). The was food ok (could do... More

The location of this restaurant is perfect, the staff is friendly. The food is is very large portions. Soup was good, the meat was a bit dry, cold, and cooked too much. Should you go here? For the view: yes For the food: no

A lovely restaurant with a great terrace overlooking the river and castle entrance. Service wasn't rushed and we both had a very good quality and good value meal. Catfish cracklings were a nice surprise and the Serbian salad was great with the hot peppers.

The service was amazing. The waiter was truly friendly and nice. The food is nice and tasty and maybe a bit overrated and overpriced.

Kazamat restaurant is in the historical setting of an old thick-walled fortress in the centre of Banja Luka, with beautiful views of the river and surrounding areas. I enjoyed a very tasty and more than ample lunch there - I was part of a touring group and the menu was organised by our hosts, but everything was tasty, helped down... More
