It is amazing! They have 2 restaurant Željo 1 and Željo 2 both are full and both serve the same food. For those who don't know čevapi is the most traditional EX-Yu food! So if you really wanna try local food you have to try "Čevapi". And you will not be disappointed at this restaurant. They serve only this and... More

The location is great and the staff is very friendly and fast. Its almost always full so they are doing somwthing right :-) the chevapcici are good, but not the best in Sarajevo. For example Hodžić has higher quality meat, but they are also more expensive. All of in all a good restaurant for a fast but tasty meal.

If you arrive in Sarajevo, this place must be your first station. Very very very friendly staff, amazing taste of meat - traditional order is "10 u pola sa lukom i kajmakom" - also my suggestion for dring is "kiselo mleko".

Friendly stuff, and super domestic meal called "cevapi", the best I have ever tried. Interesting thing is that this restaurant is placed in the oldest part of city of Sarajevo, called Baš Čaršija.

The best cevapi we tried. Fast service , good prices and delicious food. You can order 5,10 or 15 cevapi. We also tried steak but it is definately place to taste true cevapi. In the city center.

Best Cevapi I had throughout my 2 week trip around BiH. Simple, fast and cheap. But extremely tasty! Make sure you get the kajmak cheese with it! It'll make it the perfect cevapi.

We know the traditional dish called čevapčiči as it is prepared also in our country. We never in ate such EXCELLENT čevapčiči in our life! The meat mix if perfect, they are soft and melt in your mouth. This is a must go when in Sarajevo, we will return for sure!

Our hotel recommended this place in the old city for this particular dish. We were not disappointed. None of the other places that we tried lived up to this one, and there are many in Sarajevo specializing in this dish. Recommendation: get it with onion and "cheese (sour cream?" and order a yogurt drink to go with it. The waiter... More
