Portions!

Huuuge portions of food, maybe too much but still tasty and nice. Staff is classic, during summer is nice to sit outside near the river.

Always busy which is a positive sign. Very good menu for meat eaters. All portions are huge. Even the small portions are in my world good adult sized meals.Side salads very generous too. Pretty good wine list. Very good value for money. Staff friendly. Nice position and easy parking if you are driving.

We were here on Saturday night. It was full of guests but we managed to get a table. We were shocked of the portion sizes. So if you can't eat big, take a small portion don't be stupid as us, who took big portion for each and then went out like stuffed turkey. Food was great, restaurant is really nice... More

Huge portions for a fair price. Great barbecue and view of old fortress and river. Kind and fast service. When ordering, check the size of portion with the waiter, as most of regular portions cannot be eaten by one person (so at least two can have one same order).

The biggest portions for sharing, family style is the way to go here! Prices very reasonable since it is in the Republike Srpska and not as high as Sarajevo in the Federation. Beautiful views of the Vrbs river and Castle, with excellent service. Just make sure you can read the menu in the local language and speak it as well.

This is restourant with the view on river Vrbas and historical fortress Kastel. Food here is great and portions are so big you can not eat it somethimes. This is the best choice if you want to eat in Banjaluka with low price and great portions. Mixed meat, on their menu for 2 people, is enough for 4 people. Yes,... More

I have been there on business meeting with two friends of mine. We have ordered food by recommendation of chef, and we were delightful with choice. There was enough food for two more men. It tasted magnificent and definitely I recommend this restaurant to everyone who is in Banja Luka and wants to eat something quality. One more great thing... More
