Good food, expensive by Bosnian standards

Good food, AMPLE portions, nice location overlooking the river. Nice place to be the river. Seemed like a place where business is conducted over lunch.

Located a few meters from the river Vrbas at 5 minutes walk from the city center, opposite the ancient Roman fortress "Kastel" is a restaurant Vrbas. The main characteristic of the restaurant are huge portions of food. Thus, for example. mixed meat platter that was on the menu for two persons, is enough for 5 people (and believe me, I... More

It was strongly recommendet from the hotel's receptionist. Perfect location. The center of the town, quiet area, just over the river. We ordered Wiener schnitzel, steak and stuffed squid The portions were big, but nothing special. I prefer quallity than quantity. The meat was a bit hard. We order some grilled vegetables and they brought fried. There were a lot... More

Vrbas is beautifully located next to the Vrbas River. On a cooler day it is preferable to eat inside although hardy diners can eat out. We had a party of 10 people therefore had quite a few different dishes to see and taste. One observation is that all of the dishes were huge for people that do not eat a... More

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
