This might be the first review I’ve ever left. I was visiting Sarajevo and a friend who’s lived here for ~a year brought me here. It’s a family restaurant with a great vibe. I absolutely loved every dish I got: a veggie soup, their signature “donuts” with cottage cheese (pictured center), a veggie platter/special with was lots of garlic, cauliflower etc wrapped in a crepe like thing. Their portions are massive (I should have definitely only got the soup OR the donuts), so we didn’t have room for dessert. Lots of options for veggies or vegans, too!

The restaurant is awesome. All the food is fresh and from the territory and all the dishes are handmade. The service Has been great, they can speak english and they explain us every meal with passion and competence. It is a very nice place, in a good location. A perfect place where to spend good time without going to the main turistic places. It’s a traditional kitchen but modern at the same time. Not expensive at all, a good combination of quality and quantity.

It was such a coincidence that we ended up here. Luckily we did! The food is delicious. The local wine from the Hercegovina region is great. Staff is lovely (authentic, family-owned business). Certainly gonna come back here ❤️
