Description: “The Four Rooms of Mrs. Safija” comprises a restaurant, a wine and cocktail bar, a lounge, and a flower-filled summer garden. The first venue of its kind in Bosnia and Herzegovina “Four Rooms” offers an unforgettable ambience which celebrates the legend of a forbidden love affair between beautiful Safija from Sarajevo and Johan, an Austrian Count, during the transition from Turkish to Austro-Hungarian rule.Safija’s house was built in 1910 as a monument to love, beauty and fortitude. Our modern designers have crafted the interior with exceptional care, paying attention to every single millimeter of the past embedded in the walls of Mrs. Safija’s rooms. The restoration has left the atmosphere in the four rooms completely intact, which was our ultimate objective.While all of the rooms have been decorated with a specific purpose in mind, their history has nevertheless been preserved. The oriental-style architecture and the interiors decorated with fretwork and filled with an interesting and eclectic mix of ornaments, blend into a unique ethnographic display.

“Very good restaurant with great food and atmosphere...”
Reviewed August 15, 2013

Found the restaurant from Tripadvisor. Sent them e-mail for reservation before my trip and they made it.
When in Sarajevo, walked to restaurant from hotel in 10 minutes. A bit out of the main road so a silent place. Sat in the garden. Service was perfect, food was more than perfect. Eaten a veggy soup with meat. Delicious. Waiter told me it is specialty. After soup we had zuccini. It was perfect too.
And definitely not expensive.
Looking for second visit to be there...

“Excellent food, excellent atmosphere, excellent service!”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

Been to many good restaurants in Sarajevo during our stay, 4 sobe is definitely one of the best! Very good food, and delicately laid out on the plate! We didnt have a reservation, but got a table next to where the chef is preparing the meals. Very romantic venue with a beautiful garden in the back, a wine bar and a lounge on the second floor! Good service!
