This interesting restaurant is a bit difficult to reach, especially during the snowy days in Sarajevo (use cab), but the view, atmosphere and the food is worth a visit. It is quite pricy comparing to other places in Sarajevo.

Good value for the money, in general. Food is ok, limited choice in menu and not children friendly (even dough at lunch time during the weekend there was several kids with family on the top floor). But the view, great service and professionalism is the...best you can get in Sarajevo.More

I guess the people are coming here for the view. ,well we did not get the wiew because we did not got a table with a wiew,even we asked the manager and 2 tables with a view were available the whole time we dine in....The food is average nothing special.. the bread is from supermarket and funny think we ordered 5 portion of lamb they all came in the same plate so we needed to divided by yourself. The waiter was very nice and professional but is not enough reason to go there.More

When you walk into Kibe Mahala you are blown away by the beautiful decor, the amazing view of the city and the delightful ambiance. Unfortunately, this is short lived. The food is nothing special. My husband got the lamb, it was expensive and had zero...flavor. How do you make lamb without any flavor? Especially when it's clearly visible on the spit? The table split the Muckalica and it was the worst any of us have ever had and we went with two locals. I got the meatballs in cream sauce, they were cold and lacking cream sauce. The portions are small, there's nothing special about the food and the restaurant turns into a smoke box after 6pm. The restaurant offered live music. We took a video of our friends singing along and you can see the smoke wafting throughout the restaurant. I will say the service is decent and the wine suggestions were wonderful. I would go back for a glass of wine and the view but I'll eat before I leave the house.More

Kibe Mahala is one of the few restaurants where the diner can have both a great meal and wonderful city views. Our meal was delicious and nicely presented. Their house specialty, lamb, was wonderful. The views from the restaurant of Sarajevo are beautiful. Our server...was exceptional. During high season reservations are essential.More
