Had a delicious meal here with a local friend. Food is inexpensive but delicious ... Local fare with a touch of elegance ... Not the usual pile of cevapi and pljescavica. For once I could finish what was on my plate. Would head back here tomorrow ... But sadly we're back in freezing cold England!
The bit I really liked here was the roof ... Which slides back when it's warm but is firmly closed when it's cold.

Hidden in a side street, you open a door to a colourful yard (yard is what Avlija means), an extremely comfortable and unique place. Very near the city center, you can even walk the distance easily (Marsala Titova street, 5 min from BBI Centar). Very good and tasty kitchen, cheap to moderate prices, with a good selection of Bosnian and international dishes. Worth a visit for sure, for me one of the must do things when in Sarajevo.

Eclectic atmosphere inside a closed or open garden courtyard (depending on the weather and season). The staff maintains the non-rushed tempo of this place. Be prepared to enjoy your meal without feeling rushed to leave. Here, you're family, so relax and eat. Order Bosnian or other types of food. The steaks are excellent. They serve breakfast too (in the mornings)!

Also, they serve the cheapest draft beer in town!

Good to call ahead and make reservations for the evening times, just in case.

Avlija is a cozy place. Decor is very eclectic. Seating is arranged so that it is easy to talk with friends. Many people seem to be regulars. Food is pretty good; there are some nice vegetarian selections and they seem familiar with ingredients. The atmosphere is very relaxed; there is no feeling of being rushed by staff to finish and leave or keep ordering.
