They do not serve traditional Bosnian food what I thought by reading its name but that what I ate, pasta, was very tasty. Service is friendly and good. Restaurant is relaxing and interesting.

We expected bosnian food but on the menu we found pasta, risotto, greek salad.. We asked for domestic cheese and we had cheese from everywhere in Europe!
Probably the place it's populare among the locals because it was busy. The atmosphere is good and relaxed, we think this is the place to go for a snack and a glass of wine or a beer.
Nice interior with colorful wooden benches and tables.

Not that easy to find - up the hill in the Embassy quarter. Cute, almost kitsch, decorations and wooden benches with little folded carpets in a courtyard. Roof was was closed as it was winter and atmosphere inevitably smoky.
Good place for dark beer which you cannot always find in Sarajevo.
Our salmon salad was disappointing and expensive at 12 KM with old wilted ruccola and undercooked fish and no effort made to apologise when we complained. However the Krpice (strips of beef in a sweet pepper stew - cost 12 KM) was good and a generous portion as was the apple pie (3 KM) - which resembled strudel.
Menu in English and staff speak English. Laid back atmosphere - you could sit for ages over a beer or coffee and nobody would hassle you.

The food is great and the atmosphere is very cool with the feel of an indoor garden. It can sometimes be busy, but thats cause its popular.
