Description: "Best Balkan cuisine in an unnamed neighborhood!" Banja Luka is a wonderful town of sunny Bosnia. For centuries inhabited by Croats, Serbs, Bosniaks, Jews and Muslims was an example of good neighborly relations and positive mutual influence of many cultures. It's a fabulous city, destroyed by the terrible earthquake in 1969 and the subsequent war. It is for us a symbol of the Balkans, a lively mix of cultures and traditions, we want you to pass it in a casual atmosphere with a pinch of salt. We offer you delicious, a little crazy, real Balkan cuisine. Banjaluka started in 2002 and spent 10 years in Mokotow district. After moving to the heart of the city some nightlife was added to the family-friendly attitude. The restaurant is famous for its diverse balkan cuisine, highest ingredient and dish quality and casual atmosphere. Fresh balkan menu was developed by Tadeusz Muller - Banjaluka is now a real Balkan food venue with flair for seafood and large portions of meat with the legendary 20cm Gurmanska Pljeskavica as a flag dish. The place stays open late (11PM weekdays and 12PM on weekends). During lunch and the weekend brunches Banjaluka serves fine as a centrally located balkan diner and quality time with your family an friends.

Reviewed January 24, 2013

We ate lunch at Banja Luka. The service levels are excellent, the decor very Balkan. The starters are super and by the time we reached the main corse we were quite full but could not resist the lamb chops ( a must) If you are three order two portions of Lamb chops. The service is excellent and the snappes went down well in the cold....and as we were told - help digestion.

“This is a special place”
Reviewed September 28, 2012

Great food, great atmosphere, a real Balkan experience. You probably need to book ahead of time, and book the garden if it's summer. I'd call this the best Balkan restaurant in Warsaw.

“Great Balkan food!”
Reviewed September 17, 2012 via mobile

It's one of my favourite places in Warsaw. If you're into Balkan food and don't mind lots of meat, then this is the place for you. By the way portions are rather big, you might consider sharing :)

“Not worth the cab ride”
Reviewed August 19, 2012

My wife and I had dinner Banja Luka back in July and we were not impressed by the food.
Portions are huge and everything we had was just average, nothing outstanding.
Service was just okay. There are certainly better options in Warsaw and I would not recommend it.
