A nice cozy place serving local foods with friendly service. This place is a top one on TripAdvisor so expectations were high and no disappointment. The speciality here is nettle and herbs which are used in many dishes. We tried several starters and main courses. Everything was really good. A warm recommendation.

Such a nice cozy little tavern with home cooked Bosnian food with a twist - everything is made with nettle! The owner doesn't speak English but we made it work, no problems getting a fully vegan meal. Vegan options are clearly labeled on the menu, and there are quite a few to choose from. Don't miss the savory nettle donuts with hummus!! The hummus wasn't anything to write home about but the donuts were AMAZING and so affordable. I believe it was 3.5 km for a giant pile of donuts. Everything else we got was quite tasty as well. It was a bit oily but restaurant food usually is so that didn't bother us - it was high quality olive oil anyway. Really nice place for vegans in Sarajevo.

Cute vegan/vegetarian place in Sarajevo - one of the few places in Sarajevo that serve non-meat options. Stumbled across this gem close to the hostel I was staying at. Did not disappoint - place was charming and the owners were very friendly and helpful. It was such an authentic experience as you can tell the people who run the place put their heart and soul into the food. Portion sizes were massive- I had the dumplings and the filled ravioli which I highly recommend. As per the name, they serve nettle with most of the food. Best to share food since portion sizes are substantial. Would come here again and would recommend to anyone looking for decent vegetarian/vegan food in Sarajevo. Well worth the visit!
