We have experienced the authentic Bosnian cuisine which i couldn't find in other places. Home made dishes from different parts of the country which each has the special signature of Nittle. The place has cozy and worm ambient. I tried so far five different dishes...and i am planning to come back to explore more other dishes waiting to be discovered. Great appreciation to our host for making our experience so unique.More

The Singing Nettle is a great place for a filling meal right in the heart of Sarajevo. The lady who served us was super friendly, and gave us excellent recommendations for drinks and side dishes to compliment our main meals - all of them were...delicious, and very reasonably priced. We were especially pleased as one of us is vegetarian, and there were many vegetarian and vegan (and gluten free) options available. The nettle doughnuts and also the homemade nettle juice drinks were particularly tasty! The restaurant is 5-10 minutes walk from the main tourist area of the city, which makes it very accessible for dropping in for a quick bite or a full three course meal. For visitors to Bosnia, the menu also includes full English language translations and our host spoke fluently in English also. We thoroughly recommend this place, and will be coming here again!More

I came because of a recommendation, I was looking for a healthy and quiet place to lunch and I had found it. The place is in the old part of Sarajevo. The attention was very nice and polite, and the chef cooked great home made...and organic flavors food. p.s: The home made red wine , worthy to try it out ;)More

One of the best meals in Sarajevo. We had the ravioli, the doughnuts and hummus and the stuffed vegetables. Options clearly labeled for vegetarians. The loose leaf tea was absolutely amazing. Decor was so quaint and homey. Literally one guy cooking with love.
