We had the most amazing meal here and now we're thinking of returning tomorrow! A wonderful team of two ( I'm assuming husband and wife) run this wonderful restaurant. We had nettle doughnuts with hummus to start, followed by breaded chicken with sesame & flax seed, and the daily speciality for mains with a seasonal salad. Everything was amazing, including every mouthful of the salad. We'd hoped to try the nettle cheesecake but we were so full we decided to rain check and Maddy go and have it for afternoon tea tomorrow. The gentleman running front of house was warm and friendly and lovely. Limited English, but enough to make it through.

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!

Lovely little place, traditional Sarajevan style, delicious food. Love the fact that they labeled the vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options in the menu. The nettle cheesecake is a MUST-try, so delicious!

A unique concept that revolves around the beautiful and simple old nettle! We combine best seasonal produce with great skill and experience in order to prepare for you the forgotten specialties of traditional Bosnian cuisine. Come discover! In addition, fresh and innovative vegan & vegetarian options are always ready-made. Plus live music evenings, ranging from American oldies to as traditional Bosnian as it can get - we do it first!
