Walking here late at night we definitely felt off he beaten path (Google might have given us funky directions). It was worth it. We got the Meatball hotpot and a grill. Both plates were great; the neat was cooked perfectly, and I loved the creamy...More

I was not impressed by the food at this place at all. While the interior is very unique and makes you feel like in a wonderland, the food is quite bad: super oily, salty and overpriced for the quality you get. Nonetheless, I would still...More

Very interesting interior. Food is ok, but it's not mind blowing. But still, worth visiting because you will be enchanted by the details in this place.

If you ask me,one of the best places to go eat and relax. The space is designed and decorated like a Bosnian garden and that's exactly the name of the place. Avlija! Lots of flowers and vines, cobbled surface and little wooden tables with benches....More

I really love coming to this place. It is also a place I have friends come together to celebrate my birthdays, kind of a traditon. Also, it is just like sitting down in 'avlija' at home (closed in front yard type, typical Bosnian), with some...More

Firstly, the interior of the restaurant is beautifull and creative. I enjoyed it. I would rate this restaurant excellent, but the chicken salad was poor and expensive. Don't order salad, order soup and enjoy authentic atmosphere.
