“Favourite place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

First place to visit on my every trip to Sarajevo! It´s not the ćevapi alone (although they are great), it´s the atmosphere, waiters, the man at the cash register-whole package!

“Yum yum yum - the Real Bosnian Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2012

Best cevapi in Sarajevo! It's very inexpensive, filling and authentic, and definitely for meat-lovers. It's a fun, sometimes noisy, place to people-watch, as lots of locals eat here, including herds of Bosnian school children who come to Sarajevo for field trips. It's a must when you visit (or live in) Sarajevo!

“Best Cevapcici in town.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2012

We went to this restaurant in August 2012 and the waiter was immediately attentive, finding a table for us and doing what he could to help us.

We had one cevapcici each, which are served with a combination of 5, 10 or 15 'sausages' inside. The meat, cheese and onion, combined with bread was a fantastic lunch. The service was very quick and cheap to boot.

TIP: Cevapcici is a fast food restaurant, therefore they don't want customers to hang around and stay for long periods of time. Therefore beer and alcohol are not served at these restaurants, only soft drinks etc. If you're after a beer, grab one at the many bars nearby.

“Great no frills real food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2012 via mobile

The guy who works in the hostel recommended this place and it was great. 3.5km for a meal - less than £2! I'm hoping I can squeeze in another visit before we leave!
