I was here many times even I was celebrating birthdays. Food is great, I would recommend everyone to try. Prices are moderate. Interior is very good.

As title said, I am travelling to Sarajevo in few days, partially motivated by experience in this restaurant. We have been there 3 times in 10 days and every time we are enjoying atmosphere, quality and variety of dishes, nice and cold Sarajevsko beer, friendly staff and acceptable prices. Try klepe, try ćevapčići, try hurmašica...excellent job!

For me Sofra is a special place, place where I celebrated all my most important things in my life. I would recommend only this Sofra all others are not so good in ambient and food (you can really tell the difference). Try all kind of rakia (borovnica my favourite!). Big like! Try also originak turkish coffee!

really nice place, decoration is beautiful, staff very friendly and professional. the food was delicious. Cevapi!!! amazing dish, could eat it for breakfast lunch and dinner. very well priced food and drinks. I did how ever really dislike the music, a live 4 piece traditional Bosnian group were blasting out really awful tunes one after the other. actually paid them... More

Very affordable and extremely tasteful. I was so full after tasting all the different dishes that reminded me of Turkish and middle easter cuisine. Very good atmosphere and very authentic setting. I would definitely recommend this place to have lunch

I regularly go to this restaurant. They have the best "ćevapi" in town and this is original "Sofra" in town. There are a few of them, but this one is the best. The waiters and the oriental ambient are great

this is a nice place to take somebody who feels threatened by Fine dining restaurants and wants to feel safe and still eat solid food. their desserts are pretty good too. a bit crowded at times.
