“Words cannot describe how bad the food is”
Reviewed April 25, 2014

I came to Sarajevsko's brewery with some friends in April 2014. Upon first impression, the bar/restaurant appeared to be tastefully decorated, inviting and really quite impressive. The menu had a large selection of choice and the beer tasted fantastic.

Unfortunately when the meals arrived the food turned out to be the culinary equivalent of death. The chef appears to put two or three basic ingredients on each other and doesn't bother to do anything with them. In this manner, my creamy mushrooms with rice was a plate of rice with some mushrooms on the top with a dollop of double cream at the side of the plate. I've never had worse food in Europe. To add to this, the waiter just loitered around at the bar so we had to keep getting up to ask for service. He then aggressively asked for a tip at the end of the evening. Save yourself the pain and don't come here to eat.

“Always happy to go there.”
Reviewed April 2, 2014

Great place, great beer, great staff. Not expensive at all, and with live music, this is really a place to spend evening with friends cheering, and having a good time.

“Pay attention to receipt”
Reviewed January 9, 2014

Nice place,well decorated for Christmas.The food is ok the service is good. The only problem was the receipt...with an extra 140 Km(42 beers). After triple checked with the waiter,he said that the extra 140Km was from another table of 2...hmmmmmm

“Food and beer were great and the building is beautiful!”
Reviewed September 3, 2013 via mobile

I was in Sarajevo when it had just started snowing. I had heard the interesting background of the brewery and walked down to it in the snow. It was a warm, elegant building. I was greeted warmly by the staff. The beer was really good and the food was fantastic, simple, "stick to your bones" kinda excellence and priced very well. I'll gladly go there again the next time I'm in the city.

“very nice pub”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

I have been there multiple times. I always pay a visit when in Sarajevo. I like their beer and sausages.
Located very conveniently in central Sarajevo, close to the historical center.

During my last visit the pub was pretty empty which felt strange. Pubs should be full of people and atmosphere! I probably chose a wrong date...
