Nice view to Kastel old fortress, on a Vrbas river bank. Famous for their big size meals. Actually it is a strong recommendation to buy one meal for two people. And you will not stay hungry :)

Unfortunately like most of the Balkans there is no mosquito reduction afforded by the restaurant and during the Spring and Summer you should spray yourself before coming at night.

Located on the shore of the Vrbas river, right opposite the medieval castle, it really is a place to savor in summer. The terrace is wonderful with a great view and huge shady trees to cool down from the heat.

Very clean place in very nice location adjacent to Vrbas river. Famous for it's massive portions and value for money. Only problem I have found is some of the meat dishes have been cooked well in advance and can be a bit 'dried out.
