i ate there a steak and it was awesome. i talked with the owner while everything was getting ready and asked him if the name of the place is about shakepeare and he said "not much. when i open this place it was times 'to be or not to be'" i just shut up and eat after that. also decorations were interesting.

I visited the restaurant three times whilst in Sarajevo; the food and intimate setting kept drawing us back. The dishes were deliciously flavoured and there was a great mix of traditional Bosnian dishes and firm global favourites; I would strongly recommend the risotto. It was great to see the dishes being prepared in front of you, an experience I will not forget in a long time. A visit to Sarajevo will not be complete without a lunch or evening here.

A lovely, family-run restaurant. A small menu, and fun to watch and smell your dishes being prepared almost in front of you. Tables are close together, but the atmosphere is that of a family dining room. We ate and drank well, and the prices are very moderate.

There is nothing wrong with this place but I think it is over rated.
It has two tables downstairs and three upstairs, it feels small and pokey, the service is ok nothing more and the food is just average.
I had the steak in chocolate and chilli sauce which again was average, no chilli bite and the sauce was ok, nothing to get excited about.
I think that Pod Lipom & Dveri offer better food with better service at better prices.

What a cozy place "To be or not to be" is! Hospitality of the owners is at the top as well as the food. The portions are huge and the wine is fantastic. If you like diversity, dare to try chilly chocolate steak. I highly recommend this kind mixture of tastes that fulfills all your senses.
I visited this place twice in one week, both times with my business partners.
I finally found a place that satisfied my highest criteria for food and wine.
Excellent!
