Top class

Everything superb. Next to river. Its not like you've got a great range of restaurants in this city. Great service, excellent quality, enormous portions!! Seriously - be warned - my starter could have been sufficient as a main course.

We came here after trying to eat at the boat restaurant nearby and receiving woeful service. So glad we did! Our waiter was attentive and advised us against ordering two bbq meals as they are huge! We were so glad for his honesty, as we shared a mixed meat dish which the two of us struggled to finish! Food amazing... More

Five minutes walk from the centre of the town, looking at the bridge of Vrbas river and view at Romans castle... and imagine good cuisine. "Where do you suggest we can eat some good food?" I've been asked from my friends, colleagues, business partners who visit me from time to time. There are many places in my town but I... More

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 :)

This place was recommended by a local. It is an upscale location on the Vrbas. The eatery has indoor and outdoor seating. 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. The staff was very professional and the menu a... More

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. Food will never be the main reason for visiting Bosnia and the menu offers the usual meaty, rich repertoire. Even... More
