Enjoy Bosnian food in Sarajevo

To the average traveler perhaps traditional Bosnian food is still a rather unknown quantity, although the more popular the city has become, the wider the choice of options. Bosnian food still tends to be meat-friendly, but in most restaurants i Sarajevo there is always at least one vegetarian option.

 

Pivnica HS

Large beer hall restaurant next door to the giant brewery. Huge portions of traditional Bosnian food. Come with healthy appetite and near empty stomach to fully appreciate it!

Klopa

Bright, airy and smoke-free, with a retractable roof during the summer, Klopa - slang for food - offers more vegetarian and healthier options than many others in the vicinity, with some of the friendliest staff you will meet!

Dveri

Highly regarded fusion eaterie in Sarajevo's Ottoman heart. Very popular among locals and visitors with its fine garden-like glass-roofed terrace.

Mala Kuhinja

Run by a TV celebrity chef, this is a fusion restaurant with a twist. No menus, the chef asks you what you don't like and then comes up with a (more often than not) superb meal using fresh local produce.

Inat kuca

Translated as "The House of Spite," this place enjoys an enviable location on the riverside and has a great backstory - the staff are more than happy to tell you all about it.

Željo

Sarajevo is a paradise for meat lovers and it's full of small cafes and restaurants offering cevapi, a traditional skinless sausage served with delicious pitta bread. Places serving it are known as Cevabdžinica and each has its own name. The dishes at Željo, in the middle of the old town are wonderful, and there always seems to be a queue here - never a bad sign!
