I love this place. It brings the best of sarajevo from back in the day. Food is always good and the enterior is just amazing. Service really needs to improve. Kind of rude, they would bring you drinks and food and never come back to ask of we needed anything else... that would be the only negative i have to... More

Nice interior. Only two kind of beer. The mix is the mixture of the two other one. The food is terrible. Expensive than others in the Old Town. The worst food that I eaten in Sarajevo and Mostar. Szép belsö. Csak két féle sör volt + a mix ami a kettö összeöntése. A étel szörnyü volt. Drágáb mint az éttermek... More

Out of five nights we ate here twice. First time was really good, second time average and I'm not quite sure I got what I ordered! (but still was fine to eat).Good place obviously for different beers. First night I ordered a leg of veal (30 KM) which was huge with a lot of meat. Second time I thought I... More

The experience alltogether was really satisfying. The food was OK (nothing special if you ask me, although the poppy desert was amazing), the live music was perfect (just enough loud that we could hear it, but not too loud as we could talk). The prices are really low (if you are coming from western/northern Europe), otherwise average. The only really... More

Very nice place, excellent ambient. The prices are considered. Good beer, but food was an average (pub standard; not bad, not good), which is a pity. The waiter was indifferent.

The service was slow, although there were 2 tables occupied in the restaurant. The food price is a little higher but the quality is below average, it came cold and it was not tasty at all. Nothing special here. Would not recommend.

If i had only one day in Sarajevo, İ would certainly go there. The music was great. the food and the athmosphere was terrific. I was very happy to be there. Try all kind of beers in this old beer factory and dont forget to visit the beer factory museum. Sarajevsko is the best.

We went to Pivnica HS for dinner on Saturday night and really liked this place.There was live music (especially the pianist was excellent) and we had fun all the night.Although it was very crowded and nearly every body was smoking,the smoke level inside the building was not so much harming ,thanks to the high ceiling. Authentic place,with good food and... More
