Your host will be sure to tell you that Bosnian food is the best of Middle Europe, and he might just be right. We went here while we were on vacation from Portland, and it was better than anything in this category that Portland has to offer.

What an amazing treat! We had the lamb and the cabbage rolls, the flavors were outstanding, and it was quite an experience! The Bosnian coffee was great!

We read the reviews and the list of restaurants provided by our hotel. This restaurant is very well appointed by people who care about what they do. The man who waited on us was very helpful and pleasant. We ordered a red pepper based appetizer, a beef and cabbage wrapped orzo entree. Everything was tasty and well prepared. The Primator... More

Lured in by the great reviews, we gave this tiny little restaurant a try and were pleasantly rewarded. With only 9 tables, it feels a bit crowded at first, but you get used to that and then the wonderful food becomes the focus. Or maybe it was the 9% alcohol Piraat beer that set the mood.The host/server was patient and... More

My daughter and I went to Drina Daisy and were pleasantly surprised. The man who waited on us was courteous and knowledgable about the cuisine. The orchids at the tables were beautiful, as were the other plants. The food was nicely presented and delicious.

I'm usually a strong woman but the man who was working here the day I went really hurt my feelings with his rudeness. My husband and I we went to Astoria JUST to try this restaurant and its lamb. A man in his 50's that was working there was very rude to us. I don't know if it was the... More

It is unclear to us why anyone going to such great lengths to experience our food would decline an invitation to be seated, stating that they wanted to "read the menu first," & then interpret the suggestion that "the food is better understood when eaten" as a demand to leave. More

On a day trip with friends we happened upon this gem. I can't remember the names of the dishes but all were excellent. I had the stuffed cabbage with beef. Tremendous. Friends had the pita/phyllo with beef. Again, excellent. We shared an appetizer of pickled vegetables with cured meats and a basket of bread with pepper spread. I'm so happy... More

I love this place and our last visit didn't disappoint. I love lamb and it's always roasted fresh daily. My wife loves the stuffed grape leaves. Spinach pie is a must but it takes awhile. Call 5 minutes out and ask Ken to have Fordinka get started on it. ( Ken serves and Fordinka cooks) (FYI She was born in... More
