Very good food and prices! We came back a second time because of the service. Bosnian service isn’t amazing, but this place was attentive. Good selection and good food!

This place got one dish on the menu: cevapcici And this is made to perfection. Served with onions and bread from the grill. and a yoghurt drink on the side. ❤️ I absolutely love this food

Service was swift and pleasant from overworked and tired staff. 💪 Still, every single time we arrived (5 days in a row, with different friends) we were offered a place to sit (sometimes with a short wait). It’s a fast paced eatery & service. Highly...recommended! Don’t waste your tummy space at any other. 😉More

The food was really delicious. However the staff was terrible. When you call them out they just look at your face and keep going. They do not even say "I'm coming in 2 mins" They do not accept credit card and had not state this...on the menu. They only accept marks. The attitude of the staff was disappointing. I do not recommend anyone to go there. We went to "Ćevabdžinica Željo 2". All of my comments were for the Zeljo 2.More

The staff dealt very badly and the employee is a polite diamond with tourists and she asked us to get up from the table for the rain and she lies in order for others of her kind to sit at the table.

The cevapi were pretty good, as expected. However, the service was pretty rude. We felt really rushed and the man behind the register tried stealing money from me. Even after reluctantly admitting to taking a large bill and not returning it, he mocked me for...counting the rest of the change, rather than being gracious and embarrassed about his own mistake, whether innocent or not. Disguisting.More

Everything was amazing especially “sudžukice ” and “ćevapi”. The atmosphere gave a fast paced vibe with lots of people going in and out of the restaurant. The people who work in this restaurant are great and friendly. I had an amazing time and an amazing...lunch. I will always come back for more great food.More

Truly excellent ćevapi. Good meat, good somun, just yummy. We went to Željo 1 and we weren't dissapointed. The staff wasn't rude but you could see they are overworked. If you take into consideration the crazy amount of people coming to this place, it's understandable.

Must-try when in Sarajevo. Really tasty cevapi, simple as that. It is a fast-food place so dont expect a Long stay. The only variation of the food is the size of the meal. Great for a Quick lunch.

I am a Bosnian and I used to recommend this place to all my friends as the best place to eat čevapčići and brilliant staff and atmosphere and fun. I and my family used to go there for years. Sadly not anymore... we went this...evening first time after three years and were absolutely shocked with their attitude - maybe new management / staff, but they were really rude and left my daughter in tears after she tried to place order...destroyed our evening. Not going back there again.More

Excellent Cevap a must do when in Sarajevo. You get in portions of 5, 10 & 15. If your terribly hungry then go for the 10 otherwise for small eaters 5 would suffice

Very good and probably a must try while in Sarajevo. I'm not sure which shop is the best but they are all very good. There is Zeljo 1, 2, 3 and probably all are the same.

We just arrived in town and were wandering around. We saw people eating food that looked good here. When we asked one couple what they were eating, they said "Cevapi." When it was clear we had no idea what they were talking about, they asked...if we would like them to order for us. They did, and it was delicious! We had a delightful conversation with the young Bosnian couple too, making it even more pleasant.More

Just called in half an hour ago with my wife and daughter. I don't like aggressive people around my 7 year old so we left. The elderly waitress was way too snappy and dismissive. We had Bosnian coffee and breakfast elsewhere. They obviously didn't need...or want our custom.More

I have tried chevapi for very first time and it was great. Specially bread called somun. You should try kajmak as well.
