I had the cevapi with yogurt and onions and it was very tasty! Large portions and good value for the money.

nice local grill with ''cevapi'' one of most common local fast food in most of ex Yugoslavia towns! Sarajevski cevap is my personal favorit

I was walking in the old part of the city of Sarajevo and found Zeljo. Everybody was eating the same meal. Looks like this restaurant have only one thing on the menu and that is cevapcici. That is local speciality. Very nice and tasety.

The food was tasty, but the amount of meat was not as usual but as it tasted fine it was ok for us. The biggest problem was the service, although there weren’t too many people, they didn’t even greeted us properly but just took the...order, brought the food and left without a word. Maybe it was a bad day for them, but for sure it left a bad impression on us. Net time we will look for another place to eat.More

No messing about. Food on the table before you've taken your coat off. Tastes great and good value. Very busy at lunchtime.

Service is fast, the space is small and a bit cramped but it was all worth it. I've tried a lot of cevapi all around the region but this beats them all.

Excellent, fast service, very delicious food, if you have problem with sharing table with others this is not a place for you, but for me food is what really needs to be great, and here it is PERFECT! With domestic yogurt cevapi are special!

A unique experience in a unique town. The real flavor of good cevapi is something one must treasure from a visit to the ex Yugoslavia. I’ve tried them everywhere Belgrade ,Guca,Macedonia,Bosnien and Croatia. And the winner was this small restaurant in Sarajevo. Excellent price,superior quality,...fastly served . Everything was great. In the heart of the old town of one of the most beautiful cities in east Europe.More
