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

My favorite place by the the beautiful river Vrbas in the center of Banja Luka. National cuisine, excellent service. The right place to relax on hot summer days.

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.

As others write, this restaurant is situated on the southern side of the River Vrbas directly opposite the fortress. It has a terrace overlooking the river; its very pleasant to sit outside next to the river, even when the weather is not so good - it was overcast and rainy when I was last there :). The portions are huge... More

We went with a group of 7 and we all left full- and most of the plates had food left on them. Steak is great and the chicken cordon blue is huge but still very tasty. On the river, easy walk, real good meal.
